Hey guys, so some of you may know already that i've parted out the scort, most of you all here know of me and seen my scort before in pics, but anyways.. I guess since its gone now, i'll write up a short story since i'm extremely bored. LOL

Anyways, the car was bought brand new by my dad in 95, I slowly fell in love with the car over time, and now that I finally had it in my hands when my dad got his focus...I tore the carpet apart for a good cleaning, I found the floor rotted out pretty bad.

So my friend david (racethisescort89) came by and we tried to save the floor by grinding to good metal, but we just couldn't save her.

Mods didn't consist of very much, clear corners flat black gt bumper + shaved gt grille, all red tail lights + reflector, random pieces painted black in the interior, semi-gloss black painted lx rims, stock 1.9 + auto tranny & modded air box. Had lots of plans, but the rust got the better side :(

So anyways, heres some pics before, and during and after!















The hole in the passenger floor when I found it...not sure if this was caused by a heater core going out and not knowing it...or the amount of drinks spilled.



The same hole after we tried cleaning it to good metal...but obviously couldn't



couple holes along the side we tried clearing, same deal...



rockers...they were really bad on both sides



And this is how she looked when they towed her away, $150. The guy wanted to use it for the engine/tranny and windshield. Engine/body only had 152,000 on it :(



Last pic I have of her..this was a sad night



I have plans to keep with the escorts, don't worry. My plans are to find another 4 door, but a sedan this time, I'd LOVE to find a lx-e or a tracer lts, but we all know how impossible that is. Not too worried about it being auto either.

Just thought i'd post this up, pretty bored tonight, figured someone will come by and find it entertaining :p
