    GT body stuff:
    fornt & rear bumpers

    GT rear sway bar
    GT seats (not in just yet)
    Pony manual rack (not in just yet)
    15" Modern wheels (off a Contour)
    Falken 512 tires

    This is my daily driver and a car I use for Autocross, so I perform modifications one at a time. This week it gets new rear springs and struts. Next is poly sway bar bushings. After that I install the manual rack and remove all the power stuff. We'll see how it goes.

    Hmmm... I still scratch my head and ask myself why my hubby thinks he has to redo everything on this car. :roll: Org we had a 1993 Escort wagon, he wanted to put a manual tranny in it. So I went shoppin on CL and found a great deal on our current car. Once he drove little GT he was in heaven!! Now he wants to do everything to it that he can.... 8)

    Been here a while, but i'm finally getting around to posting some stuff about my car here. It's a 1987 Escort GL with a 5 speed manual. It's a very faded blue that was very beautiful in its day. I has a green door from an 84 now due to the door mechanism breaking in the door. I'll have some pictures soon.

    New to the Group

    Just wanted to introduce myself:

    Current owner of a 89 White GT, 91 Red GT, 95 Mercury Tracer Wagon and my lastly acquiered 89 LX SW.

    My favorite of all my 89 GT . Its a car with everything. Little noisy, but overall a pleasant ride and good looks, followed next by by good economical 89 LX wagon.

    I do all the maintenance on them all, no major repairs on any. My 89 GT 106K, 91GT 28K, 95 Merc 106K and the lastly acquired LX 51K.

    I do have to say that I have followed your web and I´m impressed at the amount of good information. Thanks for all the help.

    1982 FORD ESCORT L WAGON

    My grandfather purchased this brand new in 1982. He only used it as a summer car to go back and forth to the grocery store and golf course. It has 73,000 original miles, zero rust. Has been sitting in his garage since he passed away 12 years ago. I brought it home last week and got it running. New tires, rotors, brakes, and some other things and she is on the road. This thing is in MINT condition!!! I drive a Ford Excursion that gets about 8mpg, so this is going to be a relief at the fuel pump. I've only had it on the road for about 5 days now and I am already getting lots of compliments. People are even asking me what kind of car it is??? Haha. My grandfather would be happy to see this back on the road.
