    Hi. I've been driving 3rd gen Escorts as commuter cars for 13 years now. Great little cars. I like the wagons the best. I'm parting out on that has terminal frame rust and would like to offer the good parts for sale to the community. How long before I can post a classified add?

    Hi, I've been doing the same but with second generation wagons for about the same amount of time, replacing the '64 Fords I had been driving before that.

    Where about are you located? That is the biggest factor in rustiness of these cars. I'm on the west coast, a much better climate for cars.

    I live in MD, but the car came out of the Boston area. How long before I can post a classified ad. It currently says I have insufficient priveledges to post in that forum?
    Thanks.

    Curious what parts you're considering selling. I can't really think of what would come off a completely stock wagon that wouldn't be accessible locally other than, maybe, the cargo cover.

    Granted, I'm lucky enough to have a good number of junkyards in my area that will have a number of Escorts in their inventories but, again, I can't really think of something that would be that hard to find.

    Not trying to discourage your sale so I hope it is wildly successful, just not sure what on the wagon would be hard to find locally.

    John
