    Just wondering , if I remember rightly there was a member a while back who was rebuilding an 80`s Escort into a pickup . He planned on using it to haul his mountain bike . He had made a good start on it . I`m just curious as to how he`s coming with it . "H"

    Updated my site tonight.... http://www.wryday.com/~edson/escamino/index.html
    Will do more later.


    I was not able to work on it for a while due to a lack of tools. Tax return went to tools (BIG air compresser, chop saw, drill press, tubing bender and some other stuff) I also ran 220 volt power for my welder (I rent so nothing I put in is permanent, I also live in the city limits) Now I can do almost anything I need to do @ home (finally got the air up and running this weekend) Hopefully everything goes faster from here on out. ( I now have 5 cars lined up for cages. $$$ for the next project....)

    If I remember right, Ford made something like the El Camino back in the sixties. I don't remember what it was called though. Escamino rolls off the tongue better than Ranscort. :wink:

    Escamino was the best sounding name I have heard so far, and I am open to ideas. So we can have---name that project car on FEOA. So lets hear them...

    Ford was first with the Ranchero. El Camino was Chevrolet's answer.

    My bike fits just fine into the back of my Escort. I don't have remove the bike front wheel or anything. Just fold donw the back seats and remove the cargo area cover. It's a 2DR Hatchback.

    Am I missing something here?

    heheh ..... I am doing it cus I can..... I do collision autobody for my job, and I am tired of putting cars back to perfect OEM. Some people spend years paying off their car payment.... I will spend a few years making my car the way I want it! A street legal full caged mini truck that noone else around here drives, and it will carry my very expensive racing mountian bike in the back on display (like it was made just for it.....heheh ohh yeah... it was made just for my bike)

    This is the first thing I have caged and want to build some all tube framed cars (next..... mid engine, SHO powered, rear wheel drive EXP)

    I think you're missing how cool it's going to be when it's done. It'll be something that people look at and go 'wow, that's neat,' or at least look twice at, whereas a regular Escort carrying a bike, people would look at and go 'eh.' Or might not even look at it. They tend to blend in. And even if you were to buy a Ranger, (say if you wanted a small truck) it only gets like somewhere between 20-25 mpg highway (even with the four) and isn't as fast as even a 2g LX... I'd love to have something that looked like a truck but drove like my car. Who needs back seats? :wink:

    Kool m8. :notworthy:
    I built an 'Escamino' from a 1976 Escort Estate, and u r right, Escamino is the best sounding name.

    I found your site and this one when looking for my car as I sold it a few years back (still kicking myself) :oops:
