i hope you didnt already pay any money or sighn any contracts. i am sponsored buy sport compact pro and all i have been able to get from them is a big phone bill. you will almost never be able to get an answer to any of your questions and you will be playing phone tag alot. i have been waiting 2 months now for them to get me my info for my turbo kit, etc. i doubt that i will be getting any thing. at least i got a shitty movie and 2 stickers thats good for like 20 hp right. but hey things may be better for you.

When a company is willing to "sponsor" a 10 year old ESCORT, chance's are there's more in it for them, then there is you.
I was wondering the same thing. I think our cars are more for "owner enjoyment and pride" I can see you getting sponsored if you had a huge amount in the car to make it look like new, but come on, I can't see anyone sponsoring me turboed or not.

its worth the try some times, but you have to remember escorts are making their way up the tuner market. look at the amount of parts we have today compared to way back when. its all thanks to all of us demanding to be a part of the crowd.

I was actually coming on here to ask how do you get sponsorships...... so if anyone has advice, let me know! Right now the escort isn't too much, but I am throwing in an expensive sound system soon, but I didn't know how easy I could get sponsored for that, and anything else would be good too. (body stuff, etc.... not expecting any of that untill more sound and engine work is done though).

im putting a $3000 stereo in my 85 Pontiac LeMans despite the rust holes and the blown engine, think i could get sponsered too?

with a car like this, you arent going to get shit except high dB levels with an expensive stereo in the car.

You know I thought sponsorship was when a company offers you a service or money to put their name on your vehicle. What is this company providing you? If you are looking for sponsorship, you need to first have something to offer that would make them want to sponsor you. Show them that you have a plan, and how it will benenfit them to sponsor you. Let the potential sponsor know that by putting their name on your car, so many people will see it and want to use their product or service. I had numerous sponsors on my stock car, and each one supplied something or another. The best sponsor I had was the newspaper, they offered to put my car in the paper 3 times a race season. This was a great benefit to my other potential sponsors because a newspaper advertisement costs a lot of money, and this was just free advertising for them. I had a hardware store as a sponsor, they supllied all sorts of stuff for free, like zip ties, nuts and bolts, rivots, spray paint.

If you wanted, lets say, an audio store to sponsor you, what you should do is tell them you plan on doing so many shows in a year, and your car could also be offered up as a display outside the store once and a while, so people could see their product in use. In turn, the sponsor could either give up some money to pay for entrance fees to these car shows, or upgrade your system with some of their latest and greatest equipment. Just consider your car as a driving billboard.

Do a wide body, I have only ever seen one wide body Scort. I would be pretty impressed and its not something you will hardly ever see. I would keep it subtle though most mags nowadays are looking for clean and sensible not non-functional and outrageous. Congrads by the way!
