Seems as though Victoria needs to take some driving courses. 1st she hit a big green dumpster then takes the escort off the road doing 30mph?!?

I'll buff right out!





When questioned on the amount the lady on the other end of the phone, with an accusing undertone, questioned why we would spend so much money on a 1993. I felt like saying "Because I am a mentally unbalanced sociopath who is 'Googling' you right this moment." I didn't. What I did mention was there are are almost no small wagons available and we felt no need to dispatch a perfectly good car that fits our needs just to toss our money in the market place by purchasing a new car simply because it is typical behavior.

September 3, 2009 -- The morning brought more phone messages and emails from the Dixie Turman Agency. Shortly after noon Dixie Turman called to report that after the deductible Sate Farm was offering a $4045.78 settlement for the Escort. While I am not turning cartwheels it isn't bad for a car with over 370,000 miles on the clock and if a plaid leisure suit clad used car salesman was to sell it would bring maybe: $2,000 to $2,500.

$4045.78 for an Escort with 372,200.7 miles on it!

:eek:

Damn, I think it would take less time to read through the whole Haynes manual (not a joke, they're fairly short) than that writeup.

I started following that car about a year ago or so. I was really surprised when I saw the car had been wrecked a week or so after it happened. My Escort is a sister car and rolled off the factory the same month as the Yeager's. Sent him an email of condolence and got a nice reply. My car engine rebuild five months ago was heavily inspired by the Yeager's reasoning. It just goes to show you it just takes a teen driver to wreck something a responsible adult never would. I almost wrecked my car last week, but I think I'll start up a seperate thread for that.

That damage looks like its mostly cosmetic. He should be able to get it back on the road. I read about that car before, its a shame to see it wrecked like that.

I'm still kind of lost, can someone summarize what is so special about this escort without me having to read that 100 page book? I mean the chick looks nice and the escort looks trashed, that's all I gathered from scrolling through it quickly lol.

The only thing special is the amount of work that went into it, and the monstly diary... Do you have documentation on your car like that?

I emailed him asking him just that, and I actually got a response:

Thanks for your email. The big issue is the frame damage that you can't really see. The passenger side front wheel was set about 6" rearward.
