Well later today i take possession of a 1993 Ford Escort 1.8 GT. My first GT. If you all don't remember i had the white 87 EXP with the motegi's. Sadly i sold that car [seperate from rims] and i was desperate for money at the time so they got a good price. I also have an 88 EXP for parts still on my property but not really moveable at this present moment. My third escort was a 94 Escort Lx that wouldn't die. The kid that owns it now is a college student at the college i am a Department of public safety officer so i see that one often, he seems to treat it great.
the 1993 GT has 95555 miles on her. needs some work the shifter is feels like neutral in every gear but i'll look for a short throw to replace if i do recall my escort days someone did make one for the GT. it has the moonroof, cd player, lots of stratches on the body. she is rusting a little but i am gonna try to save that b4 the snow flys. i bought it just as a winter fun car. i am gonna remove the interior behind front seats and add some braces side to side and such for the struts. the rear strut towers have been rebuilt recently as well. i'll have pictures of the new one about 4pm today when i get her home
here is just a remind what my old scorts looked like if u are new here
1987 EXP


1988 EXP


1994 Lx
had GT bumper, MX3 eats, gt rear seat.



right b4 gt bumper was added

S-10 isn't to bad
had the slave cylinder go so tranny came out. twice too the first replace salve cylinder messed up so we pulled it again. so far, list of things i have done to s-10 to maintain it
front brake pads first week i owned it, dealership passed inspection on them, stupid
then universal [rear one] went out the next week
2 weeks after that went to 3 cylinders because burnt up a plug wire, fouled a plug
slave cylinder
now it needs rotors and pads up front [not til spring, coming off road by end of Nov more then likely.]
but its a great truck, gas mileage sucks cmpared to 94 lx scort.
so far i have added a ac delco Cd player, removed the running boards and lowered the front 3in with springs and shocks. next i am dropping the rear with blocks [3in] and put a bed cover on it :D so plans when it comes off the road, get lowering spindles, [2 more inches lower in the front so total of 5/3] rotors [lifetime] pads. pay off my motorcycle i have forsale and start saving for some rims with a deep dish :lol:
as of when i bought it

then no running boards and bed cover

then front lowered 3in


i have a digi camera now so i take a lot of pictures
haven't been home since friday because of working all day and evening and over night to upload EGT pictures tho to the net

pacesetter, and b&m make shifters.
Kartboy also makes one that fits all the proteges to the current ones, and the escort. and you can get it with bushings and also with bearings.

check the mazda boards i think theyy group buys on it quite a bit.

Nice to see you have a 2nd gen, your exp was nice.
