    Ok, so I know I’ve been tardy in getting pics of our current Escorts. I also have a draft of recent doings with those cars I need to post. I’ll get to this, I promise!

    I will not play this game I have had over 100 cars in my life times,
    and even if I tried to post them all, I would need to come edit it every week since I would have forgotten 1 or 2 lets just say that since 1986 I have owned over 100 cars trucks bikes.

    P.S. way over 100

    I honestly owned 367 vehicles since I was 15 years old. No Ive never been a dealer but NC has sent me numerous letters on many occasions that I needed to get a dealers license. Somewhere in my garage there is a book with all of them listed except probably the last 4 or 5 Ive owned. I have pictures of about 80% of them. Yes it once was an insanity I had!!!

    Me Personally
    1994 Ford Escort LX Sport 2-door hatch (5-speed manual)

    My dad, however
    1956 Ford Ranch Wagon with factory 292 V8 and Select-Air Heater - still owns
    1968 Ford Galaxy "pick-up" (had been rearended hard by Toyota pickup in 1972...said pickup was being driven home from dealer and was totaled...Galaxy no longer had trunklid) - was returned to my grandfather after my dad finished restoring the '56 in 1974 or so
    1967 Triumph Spitfire Mk. III (former SCCA car) manual trans - sold back to previous owner
    Through the 1980's, he daily drove the '56 up until about 1988 or 1989 (including living in Fairbanks Alaska for a year, and the drive up from Los Angles to get there)
    Then after moving back from Alaska to LA
    1988 Chevy Sprint with manual trans (which he regrettably traded for the next car in 1995) - sold
    The Sprint and '56 came with my parents to the East Coast in 1990, and he had both cars when I was born in December of 1994
    1989 Dodge Shadow 4-door hatch automatic (which blew it's head gasket like clock-work every 9 months or so) - sold
    1996 Ford Escort wagon (dropped valve seat, was sandwiched between a Suzuki Tracker and another car (drove away from it, but Tracker was towed), coolant leaks into AC system, constant cooling fan relay/fuse blowing) - sold with 220k miles on it.
    1995 Escort wagon - still owns with 220k+ miles on it now.

    Worth note is that the '56 Ford had it's motor rebuilt about 10 years ago, which has 20k miles on it now. The body however has 500k+ on it, despite being a right-off 2 times before it came into my family. To this day, the frame is tweaked 1/2" over the length of the car, but it's not noticeable.
    It's also been restored twice, but not since moving to PA, but it does run and drive, and has a functioning Borg-Warner OD unit complementing it's "3 in the tree"

    1. 1985 Nissan 720 (great truck)

    2. 1985 Bronco II (great little rig)

    3. 1982 Toyota 4x4 (tough as nails)

    4. 1985 Toyota Terdsmell (great little car, ridiculously economical, called it Terdsmell because when my buddy owned it the rear window was smashed out and some cats camped/crapped in it)

    5. 1979 Honda Civic (tough little car, buzzy, fun to drive)

    6. 1976 RA24 Celica GT (traded the Hondo for, zippy, tough as nails, drove the damn thing like a Jeep)

    7.1989 Mazda 626 coupe (piece of s**t)

    8. 1986 Olds 98 (great car, cruised on the freeway like a dream, damn car had 300,000+ miles and never skipped a beat)

    9 1969 Chevy Suburban 4x4 (blue whale, drove it for a while and parted it out because rusty)

    10. 1985 Nissan 720 (lowered, meh)

    11. 1972 Camaro (had a 350 but was destined for a 454, never finished it)

    12. 1984 Chevy S-10 (put a 350 and 10 bolt posi in it and did burnouts forever)

    13. 1989 Dodge Ramcharger 4x4 (still have it, slower than a 7 year itch but it's never let me down minus the ball joints)

    14. 1989 Escort LX (current car, paid $700, automatic, decent MPG, so far all it's asked from me is new tires, brakes and the dreaded TFI module)

    Seems many of you folk either like to buy old cars, or ya'll been driving long before I was born. Realizing that, the question then occurred to me, how did ya'll measure mileage back in the horse and buggy days? I mean, they probably measured in some form of "horse power", but what about mileage? Was it miles per bail of hay or what?? :D
