What started out innocently enough as a good deal on a clean 95 Tracer station wagon a little over a year ago, has turned into a bit of an obsession!

These cars have grown on me (and my yard) like some sort of bread fungus that appears over night and has the entire loaf covered in less than 2 days!

I went from one bone stock wagon, to currently owning 6 of the damn things (just picked up another 5-speed 97 wagon this week). I'm also in the middle of converting my original Escort(Tracer) into a fire breathing, Type R eating, V6 powered beast.... All of this within one year of being exposed! I've even gone as far as picking up a pair of 93 MX3 GS's to pirate parts off of for my wagon. And I'm even working on a low dollar brake upgrade that will be extremely effective and extremely affordable with an endless selection of aftermarket pads available for you racer types.

I LOVE THESE CARS! ... and it scares me at times, but I'm learning to embrace it. :D

So.............. Happy New Year!
looks like it's gonna be a great one!

Phone your friends and family immediately. Tell them you're going away for a while.

Check yourself into the local psych ward. I'll arrange for a room with a window view of the highway, a straight jacket and lots of crayons, so you can draw pictures of Escorts all day.

I think you'll probably find James roaming the halls there too, singing endlessly about Hondas.

Rumour has it that siragan is an orderly; the local Nurse Cratchett.

lol high you are too funny.

I too love my escort but the thing that keeps me from doing alot of mods to it is the lack of funds.

What I really need to do is find some 16 year old kid locally to help me around my shop in exhange for rear disk brakes or an SPI swap or something lol.

They are like legos when you were a kid. They seemed harmless when you first started, but by the end you were looking for evey single piece you could find to build the ultimate lego thingymabob.
