  1. :banana: :banana: :banana:
    Finally, found a car that can "get me around" while Im working on the Stang.
    Before you :rlaugh: keep in mind I wanted an economy car that is CLEAN.

    1997 Escort LX, 36k miles... PW, Dual Airbags, ABS, cruise PDL, gray cloth interior auto

    This car looks like mint other than a couple dings and 2 spots of chipped paint on the front bumper....It is SUPER clean inside and out and the air is ICE cold.

    With tax, tag/title, it was $3200 out the door at a dealer, and that includes a 2 mo/2,000 mile warranty for ANY problems.

    Here is the first pic (the oil-spotted cardboard is from my mechanics '90 Blazer he let me borrow)

    Here is a pic with my stang in the background, so you know that I just didnt snap some pic of a car in someone's driveway:

    Look at the NICE paintjob on this sucker:

    Hopefully, This car will reduce the stress of working on the Stang, and it will DEFINITELY save me some gas $$$

  2. congrats, i gotta get me something like that
     
  3. That's amazingly clean!
     
  4. $3200 isnt bad at all for that mileage, and the car is in great shape! Looks like you got a nice dependable car for a beater, plus I'm gonna bet it gets great mileage :nice:
     
  5. holy crap i dident believe that that was your car untill i saw that red mustang in the garage!
     
  6. :lol: ..... yeah like nobody believes RC until he showed us his car..... Man RC i think anyone on here would've believed you without a doubt without the pic of your car..........

    i know i would've...


    either way... have fun with the gas mileage, grocery getter....

  8. Looks real clean, low miles gotta like that.
     
  9. nice:nice: is it leaking oil?

    when are you gonna start blinging that one up?
     
  10. I wanna get a bumper sticker that says:

    "My Other Car is a Supercharged Mustang"


    Anyone know where I can get one.??

    People would REALLY laugh at that!!

  11. I have a few different models of stickers that say:

    " Rather Be Driving My 5.0 Mustang "

    and some similar....I was gonna put one on my rusty Cutlass Cierra :D
     
  12. Awesome, great find. In the next couple of months I'll be getting a beater too! I was going to get a Toyota Camry but I forgot about the 'ol escort. What mpg do they get? :shrug:
     
  13. SUpposed to be 28/34
    Ill even settle for the 28 :D

  14. Rob when I had my daily driver civic I had a liscense plate fram made that says "MY OTHER CAR IS A COBRA". I had it done at a kyosk in the mall just so people didn't think I was trying to pimp a civic lol. And check out this site on the turbo AWD RS cosworth, may give you some ideas for your scort.

  15. Sweet man, whats the plans for that bad boy? At least gotta get some nice silver rims or something.
     
  16. Nice little ride....Had 2 Escorts myself...an 89 creampuff and a 92GT..Both were great cars....Get a Haynes manual and your good to go... :nice: Had a TFI take a dump on both...Be prepared.. Its a Ford... :D

    Why not a small P/U..or you needed more room?
     
  17. Good choice Rob! Though they are pathetically slow, if you learn to drive it right it will get KILLER MPG, and after driving that thing all week and then getting behind the wheel of the stang, it will feel like the stang gained 100hp while it sat in the garage!!!
     
  18. yeah my daily driver is an escort gt i wish it was a cosworth thats what some friends call mine, because i have a loud muffler on it lol mine gets 33 mpg and is fun to drive :banana:
     
  19. mine is better :D
