    Sadly, the Escort has met the end. A mount underneath for the rear wheel detached itself, and being only rust underneath, there is nothing to weld it to. The brake line subsequently went (this was not the deciding factor, however.) So, before going to the junkyard, if anyone is looking for cheap parts car, now is your chance!

    Motor - 167k km: Plugs/wires/air filter at 160k, new rad at 162k. A/C compressor there, however the clutch for it has broken. Cruise Control seems flaky recently, consider it non-functional.

    Transmission - auto: not in perfect shape, torque converter grinds when disengaging, stutters when shifting sometimes when hot, but if you want something used for dirt cheap, here it is.

    Other:

    - Non-smoking car while I and previous owner owned it: seats in good shape, drivers side has rust on mounts but passenger is fine. Stock seats.

    - Tape deck stereo, works fine.

    - Power windows, locks, mirrors (left side mirror is held together with ABS glue, passenger is fine).

    - Has remote start box, one of the Canadian Tire standard two button ones.

    - In general, the body is not happy. The hood is rust-less however. The rest is quite rusty.

    - Doughnut?

    Ideally I'd want to sell the whole thing. If someone comes by for just an engine, it means I'd have to get the car towed to the JY for the rest, not to mention that I don't have the tools to do that, you would have to take the parts yourself, and at that point you might as well just take the whole thing. Things that don't affect drive-ability, like windows and such, no worries. In any case, if any of this can help you out, make an offer! I plan on junking it during this week coming, so make yourself heard sooner than later.

    Sorry about that - it occurred to me that reading the rules might have been a good idea.
