    Figured id go ahead and post up here for info i may need as im going along and for your enjoyment. Its been a long time since ive messed with the scort. Blew the engine up about 4 or 5 years ago while racing to a escort meet at speedzone in dallas. After that i just put her up in my shop and there she sat.
    About 9 months ago a guy fattie posted a 91 gt with a gtx, i bought it and had it shipped from la. I wanted to hear the engine run but the fuel pump was suppose to be out, turbo pluming missing,and misc wiring need done so it has been sitting since as well. I finally got off my ass a few weeks ago and stripped down the engine and got it almost ready to pull. My buddy erdtcrusin/japeater came over this weekend and helped yank the old block out. Im glad we did because it must of lit a fire under my ass. After he left i went ahead and yanked the trans, messed with the engine till i got it to fire,and called it a day. The next day i got the donor car in and striped the rear end and exhaust from it. Im now preparing to remove the gtx and a tranny that is fu(ked up.

    That is all for now, enjoy a few pics.

    Got to love resurrections! That was quite the layer of body shop dust! 5 years will do that I guess.

    Small update. The engine is removed and the majority of the car is stripped. If anyone needs a part off of this car let me know. Im gonna drag the body out in the pasture, do some serious garage clean up then get back at it.
