    Most NC members are eastern half of the state. From about Raliegh/Cary to the coast. I'm probably closest to you in statesville.

    As far as junkyards and finding parts, good luck. From what I've found, junkyards sent escorts off to scrap iron because they don't bring as much money when they sell them for parts as some other cars do. You might get lucky so go have a look.

    I urge you to take a week or two and just read the forums by section. There is SOOOO much information that has been covered already, and so often, that older members might jump on you for asking something that is extremely generic. The first one everybody asks is: "Where do I get a bodykit for my escort?" We hear this a lot. Just read through some of the sections. There's a lot of good people here that can help on specific things when you need it.

    Also click my youtube link to see my scort.

    I'm also in Statesville. I go to Stewarts off Old Mountain Road. I've found parts in in Charlotte at the pull-a-part as well.

    My bf knows the owner very well and could get cheap parts if any1 needs anything just let me know and I could have him pull parts, for the right price.

    I don't get on here that often, but I'm in Winston-Salem.

    I'm about to start focusing on my escort. My Samurais have been getting all the love this year.

    Hey All,
    Just joined the club! I'm in Concord NC. I work in Charlotte. The pull-a-part in Charlotte always has a few parts cars. I go at least once a month!

    Later...

    Stone cold stock '95 Escort wagon right now. Like I said, both of the Samurais have been getting the love (engine swaps, suspension mods, interior upgrades) while the Escort has been getting maintenance & repairs, including...
    -timing belt
    -water pump
    -serpentine belt
    -serpentine belt tensioner
    -radiator
    -top & bottom radiator hoses
    -gas tank
    -new front left axle
    -new tires

    I got the wagon with 92,000 miles on it. It has 235,000 now. It's an awesome road car that STILL averages 30 miles per gallon.

    On the "to do" list for the Escort...
    -replace front right axle
    -replace front brakes & rotors
    -new paint (black or white, haven't decided yet)
    -stock aluminum Escort rims -OR- something relatively subtle-but-nice
    -clean the interior

    I did manage to land a factory service manual for my wagon for $15.00. Probably one of the smartest purchases for it, honestly.

    I'm in Mt. Pleasant, NC about 35 miles northeast of Charlotte. I have an '88 Escort Pony, '88 Escort GL, '97 Escort LX station wagon, '02 Escort SE. These things are habit forming.

    I was at the P-A-P in Winston-Salem twice this last week. There were several Escorts of all generations there. Also a ZX-2 with a full set of fan blade wheels. I did notice one of them was bent slightly near where the bead of the tire is, otherwise they looked to be in very good condition.

    Perhaps we should get up and have a beer or two, y'all. I'd love to see who is running what. Personally, I don't want anything beyond a mild, clean wagon. It's about time I started giving that thing the love it deserves. It's been my kid car, work truck, parts hauler (for my off road stuff), trash runner, and all-around #1 for years. Getting ready to start the head gasket replacement, but after that I'll be looking for some inexpensive ways to make that car a little bit better. It's overdue for some decent paint, that's for sure.

    What part of NC are you in? Maybe we can get together somewhere one of these days.
