ok i sold my green 96 escort got myself my 7th escort its a 92 2 dr dark blue. already has a buch of my mods on it and rims. as soon as i saw this one i said too myself(man this would bee sweet without a roof. i have 2 ideas for the project on is just to custom make a soft top and sawzall the hard top off. or i was thinking something more along the lines off a 2 part removable hard top. it would have3 basiclay a lage section that removes over the front half of the roof, and the back half would lift off compleatly.
it would kinda look like a suzuki sidekick. if i take the second one.
it also would be easier too do, but id would be screwed if im out and dont have to hard top too put back on. anywho does anyone know if something like this has ben done before?? anyone i can talk too or pics i can see??

i saw a convertible Escort GT (not sure what year but it was a 2nd gen) a few years ago at a car show...and umm well it looked like complete crap. they just dont look right as a drop top IMHO. i mean it was a decent concept, but it looked like ass. IF you do make it a 'vert...you will lose all structural integrity if you dont strengthen chassis up ALOT because the Escort is a unibody car. just think of everything through CAREFULLY before you decide to break out the sawzall :D

I personally always thought the 2nd gen GT's would look GREAT as a convertable.

Grr... it'd be the perfect car if it came with a factory turbo, drop top, and AWD. Didn't the Australians get two of the three with their Lasers though?
