Since the time i first started gaining interest in my favorite little ford, FEOA has always had a place in my heart, whether it be expanding my knowledge, or just someone to talk to about my many problems, You guys have always been there.

After the untimely incident with my 95 EGT, i started looking around other vehicles webpages. I have yet to come across one as well informed and warm looking as this one. A big reason i stuck with escorts is because of this site, and the fact that i know if i have a problem, i know where to run.

Another thing was the people. I did not want to get any other vehicle because i knew i would drift away from the friends i have made here on FEOA, You guys know who you are, there are many. I knew if i had boughten any other vehicle, relations would have drifted just due to lack of interest.. So in the end im glad i found FEOA and since then, its made all the difference

I love you guys ;-)

Peace out

Nuke

:-[ Man Nuke, that was very touching bro. That´s what we´re all here for, we are one big supportive family. I remember when FEOA first started out, there was only seven or eight people at the time and we really didn´t know if it would catch on but man, did it ever blow my mind. I stumbled on this site through a hard fought search one day and so glad I did. I found club that actually went towards an Escort and not just any car. A place where I can ask people for suggestions, opinions and help. ;-) This is club is great and I will always be here to support it. I´m hoping some Southern Scort owners will join with me one day so I can get an FEOA Scort meet to up here. :-D Just have to keep trying. ;-) Just remeber everybody, w/o each other we couldn´t survive the import infestation. :-D

yeah yeah yeah...

you know just as well as I do, we´re all driving fords because we´re fucking dirt poor :)

reason why I bought an escort was mainly because I´m poor, and also because they´re easy and fun to mod, the FEOA boards are really great (I mean that too), they are super super super easy to find parts for at the junkyard, and it´s good old fashioned ford reliability (built cheap). :)

*grabs tissue and hugs nuke*

Speak for yourself, man!
I have 2 scorts outta choice, not necessity. If I wanted a brand-new, fast, expensive car, it´d be in my driveway tomorrow. Not bragging, just sayin "been there...done that" and now I´ve come to my senses at last. I´m havin lotsa fun with these scorts!
:p
And Nuke, I share your sentiments about FEOA. This site is enough to make us all want to stay in the scort family. I´m glad you decided to stick around Nuke!
Peace!

:-( Sob, sniff, dribble etc. Yes, Siragan, there are some of us who CHOOSE to stick to Escorts. I stick to this site too ´cause I like it - I´m no bloody use to anyone (sob) but I love the forums - by the way, we´re only 15th today! Get clicking! :)

yeah I bought mine because I wanted to. I was reading about them on sites like the old phatt one (you old timers know what I´m talking about) and that led me to the escort as a really fun car. I had a 1964 new yorker which I loved and was huge into mustangs. so if anything I probably would have gotten a mustang to wrench on.

Well I share Nukes sentiments...lol look at my post count. I spend TOO much time on here :-]

But for me Siragan is partially right, if I could have a WRX, Corvette, or Camaro tomorrow. I would.
I can´t deny my absolute love for what I have, mainly because it´s mine, I own it, owe no money on it and I can hug n´ kiss the car/title anytime I want. The sad part is that my parents, friends, brother, don´t support me like I think they should with this car. They all tell me to get a new car. You all know that I tried, and I can´t. To tell you the truth I was just exploring, I doubt I would have gone with a Corolla S anyway. 3 more horsepower than my car? whoopty doo.
Now, I´m going to go against convention, like I do normally, and stick to the ONLY real big thing I own... I´m making this car better 200 dollars at a time. I just got my 1.5" lowering springs, rotors and rear strut mounts today. I might have the cash to be able to have them installed this weekend. Then I´ll be driving a car with some, real, actual MODIFICATIONS to it, well besides those snazzy clear corners and driving lamps, on my cracked bumper... lol
I talked to my dad about taking my car in last night and he handed me the bill for the Cable and said you watch it too, you pay it. So now I´M in charge of the cable bill, partially because I´m getting that Cable modem this Friday. So now I own the cable, and I can d/c it if I wish :-] :-] But I won´t cause I gotta watch WWE Raw every monday and Speed Vision everyday ;-)
Anyway, I stumbled on this site too, signed up for it and forgot about it, then in August I re-found it and now I am the top dawg post whore. :-D I love this place. All I gotta say now is, keep your auto seatbelts on and be careful.

Well someone had to back up Siragan so I guess it will be me. I too bought my car because of my negative cashflow position (in other words i´m flat broke.) For both of my cars I payed a total of 650 dollars. Granted I put a bunch more into to fixing them up so they were drivable, but the knowledge I gained while doing it as well as knowing that there are now many new parts, more than makes up for the money spent. I have a few beefs with scorts (yes you heard me right), mostly because I have been let down a few times, but I know that if I had the money to buy a good scort then most of those problems could have been avoided. I too love FEOA. My sister thinks I´m a dork and that I´m in love with my car (which I am even though I won´t tell her that), but I don´t care. Thankfully my mom supports me and she even has the patience to sit and listen to me go on and on about my car and FEOA. In fact she´s learning a few things about cars herself (she just found out what a rice burner was when one almost ran into me the other day). I can´t remember how I found this site, but once I did I was hooked. I´m not on nearly as much as I´d like to be now that I am working, but I try to at least read the posts once a day. Anyway, my thanks goes out to everyone for make this place so great and filling a void in my life that I didn´t even know was there until I signed up.

hell yeah, i had 2 escorts because the first one was cheap and i liked the look of the 91-92 gt with the wrap around spoiler. then when a tree fell on it i wanted to get a used s-10 but even used ones ran too much. then i saw a 93gt and got that one. but when that one went and the opportunity came up for the mustang i had to do it. :p

escorts are cheap, get great gas mileage, and for how much they cost they get up and go (gt). i took my scorts on so many long roadtrips and didn´t have to stop for gas as many times as my friends did.
