Kevin from Chicago..north side..3 blocks from
Scott from Elburn, out by DeKalb. I'm building an '82 EXP (1st gen Escort platform) into a road racer for a budget-constrained series.
I've picked up two '82 EXP's - one auto and one stick, one somewhat solid, the other really rusted. The camo one was the stick but the floor was shot. The black/transformers one is an auto but has a more solid foundation. It also has two engines in the hatch and none under the hood, hence it's unusual 'stance'.
Between the two of them I should be able to field one solid car.

I don't know too much about cars but I do know that I love my little 95 Ford Escort. It has been a very dependable little ride for me. I used to ride my bike and didn't drive a car. As I got older the bike riding got too hard especially in the winter. I found my little cutie on craigs list. The guy who sold it to me didn't tell me it had a gas leak. He was real slick. He only put a little gas in the car. I was also a new driver and I filled the car up with gas and smelled it right away. My nephew put in a new gas tank and still the gas smelled, my nephew just put in a new filler neck and now it leaks if I fill it up more than 3/4. But yesterday I was driving and the check engine and the coolant light came on. I have a buddy that lives near my job and he put some antifreeze and water in the resevoir the light didn't come back on but the car sounded like it was not running the way it used to. Like it didn't have the get up and go. I don't know if any of that is related to filler neck job just done but will take the car into my mechanic cause my nephew lives in Wisconsin. I hope my mechanic will be able to fix my cute little car for not too much money.

I was a member here a long time ago (over 10 years ago), don't know what happened with my old account info. I'm based over at TeamZX2 mainly, also part of ClubProtege, ProbeTalk, and some others. I don't participate in facebook, and will not either. My first Escort was in 2001 when I got a 1999 green ZX2 ATX, that got totaled and I drove a very nice blue/purple 1996 Contour SE V6 ATX for 2 years. I then had enough money in 2003 to purchase a 2002 ZX2 MTX and had that for almost 10 wonderful years. Then traded it for a partially swapped KLZE ZX2 that needed a bunch of things fixed. I put alot of money and time into it, and it is becoming more awesome every year. I do have a build log over at TeamZX2, and about ready to drop in my GT35 turbo kit.
Itchigo (Tim) here. Never knew this was here. I'm in Lombard IL. The first Escort I bought for my wife in 96, and it was so good that when it came time to get a new car I got another Escort! These are so close they came off the line 2 weeks apart. The only difference between the 2 is the radio. My wife says I don't like change... you be the judge. The old one (on the right) is for parts. It's available until November when the plates expire. It doesn't run because I've taken parts like the radiator out of it. The new one (on the left) had 84,500 when I got it in February. It runs pretty well too as you can see...
