Figured I would drop in and say hi.
Eugene, Oregon here. 91' E-GT
Do you need any GT parts? I live in Eugene as well and have 5 EGTs,
2 drivers (91 & 92), 1 project (94), 1 parts (93) and one either project or parts (91)
Add me to the list, I just picked up a 95 LX wagon and I'm in Corvallis.
Paul here, 2 scorts, 1993 escort lx black work in progress, 1995 egt black work in progress, i am consistantly in the salem brooks keizer silverton dallas turner and lebanon areas... both cars need alot of work to get them the way i want them. sick of the honda's round here.
I go to Hermiston often if any of you escort owners in OR ever go there
Checking in from West Linn here, 95 Escort LX. If you guys wana do a meet, cruise or go racing I can bring my GTP
My car club PDXCGP.com does bracket racing throughout the season, they loves us at woodburn and PIR and we always get at least 1 staging lane just for our club. Another member is big into autox so a few members do that as well, all is fun. If we need a some dates for events let me know.
I live in Portland, own a 98 SE automatic. I'm a relative noob to car maintenance and probably looking at needing to put in a new engine due to a cracked block. If anyone has the time/experience/equipment to help me with a leakdown test I would gladly repay with beer and eternal gratefulness.
well, i am not from oregon but i want to visit jacob russel due to me adding MS to my scort.... i would like to hang out with some of you if you guys are interested... my scort, 93 LX with my twist!!!!
dont know if this thread is still strond but im in se portland i have a 93 lx with a 1.8 swap ac ps delete. Gt wheels. Lowered a little bit. Its that weird blue green with black lx bumpers gt interior swap. Kia headder, exhaust cam swap, k code swap.
wow, i dont have as many as LXDriver but i also live in eugene. 1993 wagon with 84000 original miles. bought it from a lady at my church that never took ot out of town since she bought it new. it was like a time warp getting into the car, completely original.
2nd escort wagon, 1st was a 95 about 10 yrs ago.
Parting 93 LX-E in Molalla, OR
Just bought my first Escort a few months ago. Got a 94 Escort Wagon to drive to work when I don't need the use of my 3/4 ton truck. Like getting 3 times the gas mileage. Bought it for $100 and have about $600 into it now making it in better repair. Might get it to good repair soon.
Was looking for some alloys for it that were cheap. Saw this car on Craig's List listed as a 1994 EXE V6 parting out. Has a bad auto trans and has been sitting for at least 5 years. The tires were flat and rotten. Looks like 122K and the car is really in pretty decent shape. Couple dings and paint peeling on the deck lid. Would like to "save" it but I know I would be upside down in it in a heart beat. I need to get my 95 T-Bird back on the road first.
Just thought I would chime in.
Eugene here. 94 lx 2dr and 94 base, or "pony"...
I'm in Tigard.
My escort is the first car I bought after I got my first real job. Bought it in early '97 with 8k miles on it from Skyline Ford in Salem. I didn't know how to change the oil until around the 90k mark, and probably took it to jiffy lube 6 times in that period. After I discovered a Haynes manual that told me how to do everything, I started taking care of it, with my brother's help, but it was too late. The engine died at 130k. I bought a new one on ebay for $400 shipped that had 30k on it. It took me 2 years to install it. I finally got the motivation, and now I can't stop taking care of the car. Its at 170k miles, and running better than day 1.
Recently finished installing dynomat-like sound proofing on floor, doors, and side panels. Got a new stereo and speakers. Nice quiet tires too. It is very nice to drive.
My Escort is black with orange pin stripes, orange wipers, orange engine, orange transmission, orange carpet, black floor mats, black leather mx3 seats, painted much of interior black. Can you guess where I went to college? My wife thinks I have an orange problem. I think she's wrong. We've been married almost 13 years, but I've been with my escort longer.
I can't think of any reason to buy a new car. After this engine dies around 350k, I'll convert it to an electric car and keep it rolling.
Redmond area here, was born in east Linn county.
I live in Medford and I am actually trying to get rid of my escorts. I have a 95 EGT with a spare motor but both will need to be rebuilt, and a 95 lx wagon that has broken internals but an automatic transmission that was rebuilt about 4 months before the engine quit. I know this isn't really the place for posting sales but I don't want to have to try and ship anything. If any one wants any of this stuff message me on here or text me (more convenient) 541-531-7272. I can send pics and am not a tough negotiator.
Whats up West Coast!!!!!! I know the Oregon Trail Rally is coming in May and I am going to watch the race... I wanted to know how many people can go to this... It starts at PIR and I am almost done with my new engine and I am driving my scort up there so I would like to know if anyone wants to do a sort meet there... my scort....
This is before I shattered my front nose piece while practicing rallying. ..
Here is the new power plant...
This is my 2.0L HO I would like to meet some of u guys from Oregon I live about an hour south of redding...
Is that an engine or an art-piece ?
The color scheme and cleanliness of it reminds me of a Lego block or model engine.
Great work. Hope you (and the nose) enjoy it.
I plan on going up in May... engine will be in my scort in under a month.... got a dyno day coming
