Ok I got my other half interested in the 2nd gen escort but she only likes the hot pink color. I need to know what years they made that color for the 2nd gen Escort and if it came on the gt also. I've only seen 3 or 4 in my town and maybe like 10 or so total. I want to fine one before she changes her mind so I can have a 2nd gen again. Thanks

Why, have you not heard of the infamous "Pink Thunder"?????
Good god man. That car is an historical figure in the Escort community. I do believe Steve Krause has moved on to bigger and better things and has retired the famous lady, but she was as pink as you can get in a factory color. It saddens me deeply that the more popular sites dont still carry a picture of her to show. She was an icon, let me tell you.
For real though, I cant remember the name of the factory color of that paint, but I do know that there are posts lurking in the EGT mail list archives about the pink lady. It was a production run for limited years if I remember correctly. It was pink enough for any fan to like, thats for sure. Im sure somsone will point us out a pic of her soon, if not Ill look around a bit more when I get back from work tonight. Tell your wife not to worry, they did make a pink escort...errrr....pink enough, anyway.

My red escort is slightly pink-ified at this point. the paint is so faded right now that in the sun it looks pink. Does that count? I believe the color of my car was bright red. 8)

Mine turned as pink as pink could be - 'T-Cut' and Mer soon put that right. The only pink bits now are my wing mirrors - have to polish them all the time. :roll:

yes pink thunder was awesome. I was sad to see it go. I'll have to e-mail steve and see if he still has a picture. I'm sure he does. wasn't the official name sunrise red or something like that? I don't think it was queen pink though :)

Hey thanks for all the help! As soon as I get all the info then I can start looking because my wife said we could get one. I hope that this color comes on a GT. Again thanks for your help!

What Years!

Thanks I'll need a lot of luck to find one, not counting on finding one that is for sale! but I hope for the best. it's just like my wife to pick the hardest one to find, or at less one of the hardest ones!
