Okay folks...here they are...
My final 3 mods of the 2002 season.
After the TZO meet in mid-November, the car is going in to storage.

1) Hood Scoop
2) Side Markers
3) Foam Air Intake Kit

so you don´t try to modify that car? I´d get bored with it by December. I´m thinking about doing what you´re doing, only opposite... I wanna buy a Camaro Z28 for the summer, and use my EGT for the winter. But first i have to get off my lazy butt, get a job, and save at least 7 grand.

I don´t bother modding the Sable.
It´s only a winter beater.
It´s nice and heavy and has front-wheel drive so it´s perfect for the snow.
I take care of it, but don´t really wanna dump money into modifying it.

I see. thats cool. how long have you had your escort? are you the original owner or did u buy it used? I´m just asking because the previous owner of my car left it in crappy shape.

Must be nice to have a second car to drive as a "winter beater".

I bought my 89 ELX in July 2002.
It was in pretty rough shape when I bought it. Only paid $400 for the car, but I put a lot of sweat and elbow grease into it. Now it´s a nice project car for me to work on in my spare time.

You´ve got it looking THAT nice after only 4 or so months of owning it?? damn you´re good. I´ve had my EGT for a year, to the day actually. I bought it November 3rd, 2001, and it doesn´t even look nearly as good as yours. stupid rust

do you have a set time when you get it back out of storage? or does it just come out whenever the snow melts?
I know i´m askin lots of questions, but I think it´s a good idea to store your pride and joy to extend it´s life.

I work as an auto mechanic for a Ford dealership, so getting my car back into good shape wasn´t really that difficult for me. I did everything myself, with the exception of the paint job and rust repair which I gave to a buddy of mine who owns a body shop.

As for the storage, my car will probably sit on one of my hoists at the dealership until the last snow fall has come and gone. Then I´ll bring out the ´scort for next years cruisin´ season.

The car has a better pickup with the new foam air intake. No real gain in overall speed, but when you shift from 1st to 2nd and punch the throttle right to the floor, the car takes off a lot quicker. It has a better response when you touch the gas pedal.
