Cruising down the street looking for a race, being bored as normal.
Up beside me, swerving and revving is a '91-'96 burgundy Escort LX with three of the nastiest looking females I have ever witnessed. The car was almost as bad, with the rear bumper almost falling off, more rust than paint, and rims that were "brake dust black". It was certainly a heartbraking sight to say the least...
"So you think you can take this?!?!?" the large, greasy lady yells from the rear window. (Keep in mind, the only motion i made to them was a grimace from the SHEER HORROR of seeing such a vehicle with such passengers)
I flinch in fright, and go about my way, trying not to hurt their feelings. Well they wouldn't leave me alone. Revving and swerving and yelling and on and on. Finally I get fed up so lay into the gas a little harder in 5th gear cruising at 50mph. I leave it in 5th thinking i'd just pull away harmlessly.
Little do I know that this crazy she-man would grind her everything trying to downshift to 2nd or 3rd. Finally, she gets it in gear, however, cannot keep up with me. Mind you, i'm still in 5th gear, her being in 2nd/3rd. This was honestly the worst i have ever felt for a car. I felt like crying.
Sorry for wasting your time.. Let's have a moment of silence for this poor poor LX, who only wanted to have a nice driver who would treat it with dignity and respect.

Geez.........it's bad to hear that about another escort. It's bad enough when 3 nasty girls are riding in it but to see a mistreated escort..........that's just gone too far

phatty girl? thats awesome. I like how she used the "ph" instead of the "f." It's like she's trying to admit she's Fat by saying that she's Phat. Where do you get those stickers from? You should buy her one that spells it "Fatty" and put it over the one she has now.

Yeah, good rule of thumb - if you can hear them, you don't want to see them. too bad about the scort getting beat on though.

Fat nastys (ugly chicks too) get on my nerve at stop lights, why do they rev for, Yeah I am going to hurt my car even more. I dont think so plus 4 people in a scort and me alone in mine, Hummm I could kill them with out even shiftin hard...(stupid plastic parts) any how should of seen it the other night, I was sittin at stop 11 and 31 when this nasty sounding scort pulled up beside me, This guy who was prepped out and had a fat chick with his revved on me. I was like wtf then ran the light yanked the ebrake and did a dount. He flashes his lights at me and turns right... Too bad he didnt come after me I would of redlined 3rd for4 and 5th just to take him.. I know my car needs work (body and something wrong with engiene (possibly wires and iginition module) (only does it when it gets hot 1or2 of driving) but it wasnt fair.

dude, the story you just told us sounds like these women who live in my town. every other escort i see on the road is well-equiped with 5 or 7 nasty and overwieght people (in a 5 passenger car) going uphill in a low maintenanced car with the same graphic descriptions you gave. thats why i feel cocky as hell when im cruising around in my washed (rust-free), and maintained LX. because it is in MUCH better condition than most of the other scorts in miles.

but that also reminds me of today when i was at work retrieving shopping carts for our store and i noticed a white 1994 LX 2-door with rust in every conceivable place, balding tires (seriously, like no tread at all), garbage all inside the car and it looks like it hasnt been washed since the first world war. and thats odd, because the escort wasnt around during the first world war. so how that poor defenseless car got that haggard in that amount of time, is beyond me.
..then again, i didnt see who the owner(s) were.

Bah! Who cares?! It's a ford! Get real! It was built to be abused and mistreated!

What I can't stand is when you have these older women driving audi TT's and other cars you will never be able to afford and they don't even appreciate it. For example, one of the girls I know - her dad bought her a brand new mercedes C320 and during the summer she is using his SL55. For those of you who don't know what an SL55 is, all I have to say is 519hp/490tq. Supercharged V8. So insanely fast, handles amazingly, and she doesn't even appreciate it at all. sigh.

Anybody here driven an SL55? The suspension setup is simply out of this world. It makes our escorts look like radio flyers. Anyway, it looks just like this:

I wouldn't sweat it fellas, the more spoiled they are the harder they fall when reality finally takes hold... and it always does, because you can't stay young, beautiful, or under daddy's wings forever (unless you die early, but then I envy them even less). Be proud of your vantage point.. they may just be fazdas, but they're our fazdas.

Mercedes has really gotten on the ball building some seriously GOOD looking vehicles. Forget the stodgy image - these things purr.

Statistics aside, I've found the worst drivers are not teenagers or the elderly. It's the well to do with the expensive car and are too busy on the cellular to worry with insignificant details like road signs and markings. My wife was cut off twice yesterday by a lady on the phone in a Merc. who cut into her lane at the last second and then stayed on the phone while the light turned green, causing my wife to miss the light again. Kinda makes you want to put a big ol' Grand Prix through the back of the little Merc. doesn't it?

8O *drool* that is so beautiful. But, for the $120k asking price it BETTER have that much power. And yeah, that car costs $114k more than our cars did new, so I would expect it'd make escorts look like radio flyers.

Siragan, I'm not flaming or trying to start anything, but I was checking the numbers I had seen on the SLK55 and here is what I found. They are basically flopped from what you said and I am just wondering where you got your info so that I know which one is more accurate. I got this from the auto section of MSN.com.

Horsepower 493 @ 6100 RPM

Torque (lb-ft) 516 @ 2650 RPM
