:withstupid: x about 1 billion. There are not enough WERDS in the world that can describe just how much I agree with you on that....

That's a euro Escort. They have nothing in common besides the name with American Escorts, I wonder if the body panels would even be swapable....

yep yep, europe is like japan and most other foreign nations, they all drive on the opposite side of the road and the drives seat is switched.

I doubt that the body panels would switch at all without a lot of fabrication, the body lines are so different than the American Scort, but not sure how the internals, chassie and frame are compared to our scorts.

also the cossy are AWD, so the motor mounts and engine bay are probably totally different, but i have never seen one in person, so dont talk my word for it

whoever built that car was a VERY talented bodyman. That is an American car, look at the wiper screen it is set up for LHD. Also the Cossie dash is binacled twice, one with an OhShit handle, that car has only one. Methinks the person bought complete exterior sheetmetal and lamps on the uptight side of the ocean and shipped them over, then grafted them onto an EGT.

From my best guess, that is.

look at the rear windows they are diffretn than american, plus the groove down the side from the body lines europe is pretty much all lhd unless it changed back in the last 10 years from when i was there. i looked once, the spot where the fenders come to the door on the euro scorts is diffrent, and the car is wider by a margin from ours.

Places in South America drive on the Left side of the road. Actually, the real real reason why we drive on the right side os the road is because Henry Ford put the wheel on the left side of the car.

The drive on the left side of the road in Africa too. South Africa to be exact. I am not sure about the rest of Africa, Asia, South America, and other places., IIRC, it is aboiut 50/50 in the world.
