so.... I have owned several escorts in the past, and for some dumb reason, I figured I would buy myself a bigger newer car.

So now here I am 4 years later, after having realized my contour wasnt even as roomy as my escort on the inside, and missing all that fun that comes from escorts I picked up a GT that was probably this close to being junked. A little TLC, a buncha hammering, and a buttload of little parts later, I should have a good daily driver again.

91 EGT with a 5spd. 3 piece wing, all the correct ground effects and bumpers 8O. Needs a timing belt, water pump, both window regulators, a fender, shifter bushings (I hope), a couple of rust holes, and an exhaust leak. MEH for a free car, who cares. Plus it will be fun.

Also, my little sister was looking for her first car, so I lucked out and found her a 95 LX 4door hatch in great shape. Just gotta fix those automatic seat belts.


So..... anyone got a drivers side window regulator for a 2 door hatch? Maybe that trim that goes along the top of the door panel to seal the windows.

And who is close by? Vermillion, SD here.

When I see a girl the first thing I notice is her butt

Then I start wondering what she looks like from the front

Couple more glances at the body and I can decide if I want to go for a ride in her



ok, innuendo aside
here is the rust

Things like this just make me want to cry

And finally..... the fender

About the automatic seat belts. My 91 came with one of them stuck halfway along, and the fuse missing. I took the mechanism out of the door frame, hoping the slide could be opened up. But alas, it was a one piece aluminum extrusion. I turned it upside down and dripped thin oil into it, took the drum off the motor so I could pull on the cable, and took the ends off of the track by driving out the little pins. I was able to free up the slider and cable, get it cleaned out by rinsing with gasoline, then getting vasoline melted to run down into the track for a lubricant, and got the thing back together. It worked so well that now I am aoing to do the same 'maintenance' to the other side of the 91, and to our other 2 Escort LX's.

the plastic coating on the cable has been breaking apart. The cable hangs outside of the track... so I will figure something out with that. As far as your seatbelt fix though, I may do that with my GT while I am rebuilding it. Heck may as well do it and have them working real good.
