Coolest place my Escort has been with me would be this week's Space Shuttle Launch at Kennedy Space Center. I went as Media for my school newspaper and as a result got some really spectacular access privilages.


Parked at the Press Center just next door to the VAB. The stripes on that flag are as wide as a city bus.


Less than an hour later, i was standing there. From the pad to that fence is about 1500 feet. From the fence to people in the background is about the length of a city bus.


A few days later (because of the launch scrub on thursday) i got to see (and hear and feel) this!! Yes, that's my picture. It was even more incredible in person.

SPECTACULAR! Thank you Escort!

With neither of us pulling on each other at all for the most part :lol: Although at one part you pulled like a 1/2 length on me.

I drove my Tracer around New York City before. That's about as far as I've gone distance wise, and probably the most interesting place it has been.

My wagon took me and 3 friends to Six Flags, a 4 hour drive. We left late and didn't get home until 1:00 AM.
Good times...

An escort took me back to her apartment once. She showed me her headlights and I showed her my skid marks. Funny, that was the last time I was able to start her engine.

The coolest place I ever took my Escort was when I was in my 1985GT (which I bought new in Jan 1985) and I just happend to be driving through NJ when I passed by the factory where it was made. Mind you, at the time I didn't even live in the northeast and only knew that my Escort was made in NJ, but had no idea exactly where.

I think Budge should post in this thread. 8)


I believe the coolest place I've had any of my 'scorts was when I drove my '93 GT to a fordfestiva.com meet at a road course track in Waterford, MI this past July 30th.

I had a good time there, being around all those enthusiasts. I don't know why, I just think it's really fun when members of an online forum meet. Even though it didn't last long (2 hours, mall security kicked us out), I also took that GT to our FEOA Michigan meet back on April 29th. There was only 4 of us, but I still had a good time getting to know a few of the local FEOA guys out here. I got pics from the FEOA meet and the festiva meet on 2 disposable cameras, whenever I get around to developing them (I've been putting it off for SO long :lol: ), I'll try to post them.

If I was a drinker and if I had the motivation to drive that far, I would consider going to the Christmas Ontario meet.

C'mon! I drove to Michigan just for a box of White Castle burgers! This is for real food, alcohol (if you want a drink) and fun people!
