Just joined, been reading the forums for a month or so and figured I'd probably better if I wanted to post instead of just lurking.

A little bit about me, I'm on my third escort. First was a 96 wagon I bought in 98. Got 177K out of the old girl, but took three engines to do it. Second was a 95 Wagon, intending to use the engine in the 96. Ended up just driving it around for two years. With parts from the 96, I never had to buy anything but brake pads and stuff like that for it. Ended up selling it cheap, as I got rear ended once, hit and runned once, and I rear ended somebody once @10mph, drilling their tow hitch through my bumper. :)
Just picked up a 98 4 door SE (2.0 SPI) with 50K on the clock. Has some minor scratches all around, and a ding in the hood. Both are fine with me, since I want to put a scoop and a body kit on it. Interior is mint, and still smells with that new car smell. I figure I was going to mess around with the body and stuff anyways, so could care less if the hood has a ding.
Haven't done that many mods to this one yet, only changed the tie-rods (have had these bust off before, not fun), air filter replaced to K&N, and wired up 2nd battery + inverter in the trunk for future mods. (Onboard PC).
This car will be some fun to mess with until I get the time I'll need to rebuild my 87 Buick Regal 307 Presidential I've had sitting in the garage for 6 years. :-/

Since you've been reading and lurking in the background, you'll already know that the initiation for all new members involves Photochopping marclar in the "Umbrella Pic".

Get to work. We'll decide whether or not we like you based on how well you massacre him.

Nobody could miss that one. Modding that picture I suppose would be like some of the mods you see on cars. Take a beautiful thing and ruin it. Can the original picture actually be made ANY better? I think not. :)
