    I just left the ranks of 1st Gen only owners. I now own a 1999 SE 5-Speed w/ 85,000 miles on it.

    I still own my 1990 LX 3-Speed ATX with 77,000 original miles on it.

    I have 2 '99 escorts. Both red, 4dr sedans, with the DOHC engine. Both have approx 80k and both still get 33-35 mpg in town and 38-40 on hwy. Pretty satisfied.

    I got 56k on my 2000, that I got in may last year with 50K.

    It loves cold weather, motor starts like its 70 deg out, and goes through snow like it has snow shoes on.

    Do you know it has been 3 months since this post (and by the way - the 98SE STILL has 162,000 miles on it and the engine is STILL dead).

    I decided that it is time to get Ol' Blue running again, so I am shopping for another 2.0L SOHC engine and will get it on the road again.

    Man do I miss buzzing around with that car - and the 32 MPG on the road!!

    SOOOOOOO much reading to catch up on - I have been gone for those 3 months.

    Thanks for still being here all!!

    EAK

    Yes, they are 17x7.5 with 205/40 kumho ecstas. Needed spacers in the rear and had to roll the rear fenders and trim a bit of the inner bumper to get rid of all the rubbing during autocross


    Update on my mileage: 124,000 on my '99
