Fixed!

Got the car back, and on my birthday no less. So this makes it by far the most expensive bday gift I've ever received...heh. Little over $1000. Purchased a junkyard transmission out of a wrecked 94GT with 72000 miles costing $495, had that cleaned up and shipped here and installed locally, for another $400, plus when the planetary gear in the old tranny went, it destroyed my newly installed driver's side transaxle, another $130 to replace that. New state inspection after having sat for a month was another $15.

I highly doubt that any of you are anywhere near as happy as I am at this moment!

Hot diggity dang, and other words I can't post here....it's awesome. The old tranny must've been sucking some real power because this thing is quick again. I kept up in traffic with a Tbird super coupe this morning. It drives like a brand new car compared to the old. Now I can work on projector lamps for the front!

Other news - I'm in the middle of moving, so am spending all of my time fixing up the house, new siding, painting, etc. So won't be upgrading much on the Escort for now. Just had to make it driveable. But after the move, I'll have a garage (hopefully) to do the work in so that'll make things so much easier.
