Is there any mazda / escort clubs in arkansas? :?:
if so I have not seen one yet....
We need one
we could possible stat one...I have seen a couple of nice scorts around here...also just a side note I may have found a nice parts car for ya....or even just a second 323 near my place
That would be awesome
Since I live a rock throw away from the hilly state of AR, mabye I should start an Escort owner's club. But as a leader, I should probably do something to mine first... I got mine yesterday for FREE... 91,150 miles on it At first, I was ashamed of it...
BUT knowing that there is a FORUM dedicated to these tiny but efficient cars gives me hope. There are actually OTHER PEOPLE out there who actually LIKE.... Possibly LOVE these cars... That too gives me hope. Mine needs work. An Escort club would be awesome, but with my car in the shape it is in, it would be a disgrace to be Leader. I am thinking about leaving the outside totally as it looks, un-matching pieces and all, and just work on the engine with possibly a turbocharger, short air intake, and other pretty shiny sparkly parts that might increase the hp on the 88hp 1.9L engine. Mine is a 5-speed manual. The interior needs a good cleaning, I can't explain the bird poop in the back floorboard. I love projects :roll: This one may be interesting. I'll start working on mine when the sun comes up and I'll start fixing the things I can fix with my $15 Wal-Mart tool kit and my self-educated knowledge of electronics and cars. I have a few basic things I would like to do, like possibly LOWERING the seat since I'm 6 feet 4 inches tall and my right knee turns the wipers on my mistake every time I get in the car. Any tips on lowering a seat? I've never tried it... ANY and ALL advice on things I can do to the car to make it a little more drivable would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.[/img]
not too bad, the body looks to be in decent shape even witht eh mismatched bumpers and grille...I am thinking of hosting a gathering of sorts here in LR in the spring after I have had some time to get my body worked up a bit
Count me in if u do.
Let me know when the show is going on cuz, I will make my plans to get up there. Hopefully I can get an exhaust added to my Scort by then.
you know I will let ya know...btw, I am dropping off the scort to the bodyman while I am gone to Hawaii...3 weeks should get it done
Painting it all white or are you just repainting what was fubar'd?
well my bodyman does nt do pain....so it's getting a couple of custom mods and will be in full primer for a bit...trying to decide whether to go back with white or not....I am thinking I will if I can find the wheels I want for it...because they will look slammin with white but not with grey...hmmmm
You could paint it that new 06' Corvette yellow. That color is sweet. Set it off with some black or charcoal rims with accented brake calipers and your talking about a sweet custom ride.
arrest me yellow...yeah I need that one...lol....if I can find the wheels I want I will go with white...otherwise it's an Audi shade of grey with some nice wheels
I always heard "red" was the arrest me color. LOL That's why I got a black car instead of red one...LOL
red and yellow are very big on attracting cops...orange is also a attention getter...from an article I read awhile back the stealth color is pretty much any variant of tan....but I cannot handle painting my car in that...it's just not me
update...my carbon and blue hood just came in today...now I really cannot wait to get my bodywork done....wooo hoooo yeeeehaaaa
Give some good advance notice on the meetup, an I should be able to make it down that way.
Where are ya'll at, anyway?
I'm in Springdale/Fayetteville.
North Little Rock here
Hey hey you know im down for starting a Mazda/Ford Club. A friend and I plan on tag teaming some Festivas when I get back to Arkansas so that should be 2 nice cars to add to a club. Mike that is a sick hood. I thought you were gonna sell the Scort??? What happened to the 240??? Well im in Guam now and it kind of sucks to be honest with you. I am starting to get over it though. People at work are starting to invite me to go places now so I have something to do on the weekends. Well take it easy guys.
