    Nice '85. Is that a Massachusetts plate?
    How the heck did that car survive?

    It's in the works. No clue on the Pistons. I got the engine from a racing shop. The buyer never showed up and I got it.
    It's going to be really low boost. Around 4psi. Not looking for alot of power. Just a fun driver. Shooting for 125hp-150hp.
    Once I get into it I'll post a bould log.

    Here's my 88.5 LX. Bought it last October for about $600 (traded $400 worth of tires and $200 cash). I've done a bunch of work to it and drive it almost daily. I've put nearly 7000 miles on it so far. When I first bought it the gas tank had a small hole in it so the first thing I did was put in a new tank and swap the timing belt and water pump. It's hard to keep track of all I have done to it. I just now finished swapping the power brake booster and was looking around on what people are doing to replace belt mouldings, and that is what prompted me to sign up. Right now my short term goals are to pull out the windshield and fix the water leaks, and I would really like to throw a fresh coat of paint on it. I'm also looking for plastic bumpers which are in good shape. I bought it for a beater car but I wanna make it a little nicer. It currently has 32,764 miles. I believe those are original miles because everything has so little wear. Cheers!

    I actually had two. A 1981 metallic turquoise blue GL wagon, with automatic transmission. I got in Arizona for $500.00 back in 1994. It was a decent car for a bit. I replaced the transmission only to find that the previous owner replaced the spark plugs, but they were one size too big, and jammed in the head. That car was junked. My other Escort was a 1981/82 2 door hatchback, which also had automatic transmission that I got in 1995, while going to college. It was an interesting two tone cream and metallic brown color. This was actually a good running car, but was badly rusted out from hard Minnesota winters. I was the only one in my family to own an Escort, and I had two. I am looking for another 1981 or 82 Escort to restore and keep as a collector car. They are not bad cars, but are really not disposable either. They were originally designed and marketed as long range sub compact cars. Like anything else, they only work as well as they are taken care of.
