    The First Car I've ever owned..

    Hey guys, I'm new here and have been using this website as a reference to fix my first vehicle to my name. I'm 26 and the father to a very beautiful 2 year old daughter and a husband to a 28 year old loving wife and also the now proud owner of a 19 year old 1.9L SEFI Escort LX Wagon. The Odo seems to be sketchy so I don't know the original miles. Anyway I thought I might share a sticky that I had on my stickies app on my laptop with you guys. It's basically the price list I spent on getting this to where I was supposed to get it when I spent the initial $800.00. I'm not a car mechanic but I did used to watch my dad work on his cars as a kid, just minor work though like change a tire and oil . Anyway here it is.

    Total (Not including time spent researching, gas money, and money spent on new tools) - $3258.27

    Friday May 4, 2012 10:10PM - Just installed lower ball joint
    and going to get alignment and rotation tomorrow.."

    Saturday got the alignment done and now it's just down to minor things mostly *knock on wood* . Although I feel that i will be needing new struts and springs in the near future after the drive to vegas! I also think the I may need to replace the P/S hoses due to the fact that even though i replaced the rack and there are no leaks, and flushing and bleeding the system--I still hear a little noise from the P/S pump and I see very little bubbles of oil on teh top hose coming form the P/S resevoir after cutting off that protector layer.

    Any suggestions or replies are welcome!

    WOW!!! :wideyed: I have been around autocrossing and the Honda tuning crowd (Honda and Ford lover here) for almost 30 years and I did NOT know people tuned Escort wagons! I am very impressed.

    Mine I've had for two months, third owner, 182k mostly highway miles. 1.9L AT. Totally stock, and will probably stay that way just because I got her to go to work and carry the kayak on. Other than replacing the stock radio soon. She replaced an '88 Civic that decided to die on me. I nearly got an Accord but with theft and having to buy a rack for it, I turned my eyes to the wagons. I was really wanting a 97 up but this was a good deal. We've put about $1k into it and lots of elbow grease.

    Hey all. I'm Rick from Greensboro, NC. I'm new to the forum and new to the Ford Escort world. I have tons of questions and glad I found this site! Here is a picture of my '99 wagon. I just installed some used 17" wheels I found on craigslist and modified my bike rack to fit on stock roof rack. I still don't understand this, but my bike is worth more than my car... lol :eek:

    Cheers, everyone!

    wagon.jpg I have a 97 Tracer wagon with 74,000 miles I got about a year ago from the original 74 year old owner. The car came with with a 4 inch think folder of records. It was special ordered: Boysenberry Blue, all power options, the trio wheels, cruise, ABS, 4 wheel disc, and a 5 speed stick. Bone stock other than 5% tint on all windows except front doors which are 35%, and some Kenwood and Kicker speakers in the stock locations from Crutchfield. I have a new set of General Altimax Arctic's on the 14" wheels, I plan a plus 2 or 3 summer wheel/tire upgrade in the spring, as well as installing a set of NOS fog lights.
