So I was out driving again last night, on that same stretch of 40/64 that I was on the night before. It's becoming a habit for me to zoom up and down empty roads late at night, I'm not quite sure why. So I see a pair of tail lights up ahead, and figure I'll see if I can't have some fun. I blow their doors off doing like ninety then slow down to see if they'll take the bait. I come about even with the car, and I'm damned if it isn't the same corolla from last night! So the import revs its engine and I drop a gear to keep up, and gain about a carlength and a half probably because the other driver wasn't quite ready. I accelerate as hard as my slow little ride will go and I lose a half carlength, so the other car's close. We race along gaining speed, and the other car refuses to give up, and I can't widen the gap. As I see the speedo climb up towards that nasty 110 limit that the car sets for itself I make the decision that its time to end this before I lose any more of my pride and the other car passes me with its (probably) higher top speed. I hit an exit, but the other car follows me, and we're off the highway onto the empty road that is Olive at 2:10 in the morning. My original goal with this run was to get a burger, so I sigh heavily and pull into the nearest mcdonalds, slowing down, and the corolla blows past me at a speed relatively higher than the speed limit. I get my burger, and I'm sitting in a spot in the parking lot getting my food situated. Right as I'm about to pull out the corolla rolls up, turns off its engine and its driver gets out, and it turns out its a girl, so we talk for a few minutes then I ask if I can get a look under her hood (of her car) and it turns out its a stock corolla engine, just like James said. Grr. Cold air intake, and a nice shiny valve cover, and that's it. So I get her number and head home for the night, feeling pretty lucky. :mrgreen: And that's the best thing that's happened to me probably all year. It it would never have happend if it weren't for me escort.

I just really wish I had some evidence to back this up, I doubt any of you are gonna believe it...

Well she ain't too bad looking, else I woulda floored it and probably spilled my drink all over my floor matt. (again.) I don't know if I'd call her hot but she's pretty cute. :p Anyways. The 'scort is apparently very lucky. And to think, just a few hours ago I was mad at it. I think I'll reward it with that new suspension I've been meaning to buy. :p

It's nothin' special. Completely stock 97 LX I just rally the crap out of it. :D Soon though... soon as I get a job, it'll start becoming special. I'm probably goin' down to carterville this weekend to visit my uncle. I'm not too sure.

Cool. I might. I'm kind of embarassed by my car to show it off right now. It's got a dent in the hood and the bumper is a little... Okay the bumper is all messed up because it's been in 3 accidents without being fixed. So I'd like to get this stuff fixed and get my new suspension before I show it off. :D Anyways.

I guess I've been looking at too many awesome ones. *cough*Blade*cough*wickedwagon2*cough*
Probably there's a lot of people like me with stock LX's on here then. :p
I haven't done anything to mine and a lot of people have. It doesn't feel like I have anything to show off. :p Except my red license plate lights and red dome light. And those pioneer 3 ways. Those're pretty nice. There's some freakishly large systems on this site though. I thought mine bumped along pretty nicely... Then I see Rascal's and I'm like 'jeez I don't even have a sub'... Speaking of which, I have money... I should buy one. o.o Off to flip's to get a sub tomorrow, methinks. Maybe.

We all know you really meant under her other hood :wink:

I made a lucky guess on that one.

You lucky SON OF A FREAKIN!!!!!!!!............... :sign5: No one's ever stopped and talked to me and it's usually some punk ace kid (like me) who's gunning his crappy cavalier 2.2 at me. :angryfire:

You haven't given me any reason to doubt you, so I won't. :p
Take her out to a real nice restaurant and stop being so embarassed with your car. the bumper and the dents...shoot I've been riding around with a big ass rust spot on the driver side and a really messed up bumper, a few dings in the driver door and to top it off in pure sunlight my car looks PINK. (except the newly painted bumper, grille and 3 piece spoiler) :D

Pink escorts are really freakin' rare. I believe I might have seen /one/ in the entire time I've been driving; and it could have been just they way the sun was hitting a red one or something. Of course, there was that other one, but that wasn't factory. :p

Yup. Otherwise the majority of us would probably be driving 'stangs, cameros, trans ams, or something like that. Not saying the escort is not a nice car but if I had 30k to spend or even 10k I'd go out and look at getting a firebird or something.

Although I have professed my love for the Fbody many many times on this board, I would not dump my Escort right now. I have too much money in it and too many plans for it. Besides insurance on a Camaro Z28 would kill me. it's not worth it at this point in time. :wink:
