Well, recent events got me to thinking. A month ago I decided to not buy back my car. But the best decision I have made in 3 years was made 10 months ago when i sold the escort and bought my civic. I decided to rid myself of that problematic piece of crap. I loved my car but, it was too problematic, I just wish I had seen what I see now, back then when the first major problem occured. I could have saved myself so much money and gotten a real car.

Anyway, I'm writing to you to say thanks for all of the good times and the bad times. I've enjoyed this site very much and I hate to do this, but I feel like I'm just holding onto an old flame that needs to become part of my past. I'm not ashamed that I spent 2 years learning and defending this car to the death against everyone who told me otherwise. But I've moved on to a new love, found a new road to follow and I've found something else to learn about. I need to part ways with this site. I hate to do it, but I have to.

I'm enjoying my time with my Si. It's a much more fun car to drive. less problems, and I get more compliments on it.

I've already gotten farther with this car than I ever did with the Escort. Parts are just SOO much easier to find. Tomorrow, hopefully if it shows up, I will be installing my new skunk2 short shifter. It's going to be a new and fun experience for me as i have never done this before.

I'm giving anyone and everyone 3 days to copy and paste ANY AND ALL OF THE INFORMATION on my site about Escorts and then I'm deleting it all.

http://www.cardomain.com/id/james92scort I don't care anymore. It's all your information anyway.

I'll be around on AOL and MSN for those of you who already have me on there. For those that don't, red92egt is the old name on AIM in which you can freely contact me.

I still have tons of my stuff for sale. Email me if you're interested in anything. I need and want it gone, but stop lowballing the offers.

Donnie and Matt, spread my posts about.. i bet I could give one to every member here. :)

I apologize to anyone that I have misled and given false information, for the most part I tried to say "I think" and left it at that. But when I am told one thing by someone and two months later they change their mind and then try to call me out to make me look like a fool I will get offended.

Beav, we've had our differences and I'm not mad at you, I didn't read your response in that thread and I don't intend to. I hope you have fun with your wagon, and i'm loving what you've done with it so far.

Siragan and 92egt, you two have been like brothers to me and I enjoy our chats on here and AIM.

Tito.. well you're an ass, but i gotta love ya anyway. :wink:

Everyone, Good luck and god speed on all of your projects. May you get your cars set up exactly how you want them.

Your friend,

James

Heh. Have fun. :\ Moral: You can't get a good car cheap. You buy a cheap Escort it'll be a piece of crap. (Like you're saying yours was - we spent good money on mine 3 years ago and it's still fine.) Good luck with the Si, hope it makes you happy and you take good care of it.

yes! we finally got rid of him! *gives beaverboy a high five*

j/k bro, I'm gonna miss ya. :)

Have fun with the civic, but down the road, you're going to realize exactly what I realized about a year ago- it's still FWD. If I could give you one piece of advice, it would be to get yourself a nice RWD platform to build on, because FWD can be made to handle very well, but it certainly has its limitations. I've finally gotten my EGT to exhibit slight oversteer, but just due to the nature of the chassis, the oversteer characteristics aren't predicatble, so you get a very edgy ride. I've spoken to other people who have seriously built up suspension on their FWD cars and they run into the same thing. It's basically forcing a car to do something it doesn't want to do, and that's why it sucks.

Have fun, and keep eating cabbage!

sounds like another whiney FWD and Escorts suck post to me! But honestly keep in touch james. You've been apart of our lives way to long to leave us for good. I understand with my car sitting in my garage for a year and a half now. I'm still hanging on to it because I do have big plans...just no money *L* But it is frustrating to still be hanging on to something you don't drive anymore.

i can't say that were all not saddened by you leaving, because you've been one of the biggest sources of advice and help out of all of us. good luck with the si just like everybody with their escorts. hope you can swing by the site once in awhile because i know everybody would want you to. and please please please don't become one of the other honda owners who is utterly conceited. thanks for all of your advice and wisdom. good luck with everything that comes your way.
