    Yeah Just look at James!!! Just playing James, you know your stuff pretty well.

    Thanks to Siragan for the compliment. I echo his words, just work on your stuff and let people draw what they will from it.

    Oh yeah - the reason I joined. I got bored one night and was looking for a good wiring diagram for my 94 gt when I ran across escortgt.com and just started poking around. Lots of good people with a lot of knowledge about escorts. Next thing you know we have FEOA and life is good. I kind of dropped off the face of the earth for a while when I started running some tobacco stores, but I eventually found my way back.

    Birddog, do you feel guilty for shortening the lives of thousands of people?

    Just wondering.

    you make it sound as if he was the one shoving the cigarettes in their mouths and lighting them...


    I strongly despise people who are against smoking that carry this sort of attitude. Don't get me started on those stupid commercials either.

    We should have known. lol

    xSwiggerx, GrindcoreBeatdown - my suggestion is you don't come back here. you were given chances and decided they weren't for you. so you and all of your alter egos can go elsewhere.

    I joined for an exchange of technical information and helpful suggestions... and there is plenty in the library... not for barbs, insults, etc.

    By a tabacco store, I'm guessing he means a cigar store. The cigar store I frequent has some of the coolest, most down-to-earth guys I know, they know cigars are killing them, but they don't care. They're living it up.

    Cigarette companys purposefully making cigarettes addictive/marketing to kids and running a cigar shop are not equal evils. Sorry.

    hahaha. Shut up. I love smoking cigars. Smoking tabacco does not cause 'misery'. I'm sorry if a loved one of your died from a tabacco-related illness, but that's their own fault. Don't blame the tabacco companys. They didn't make your loved one go to the store on a daily basis, smoke on an hourly basis, and refuse to try methods of quitting.

    However, BACK ON TOPIC, I joined because my normal forum-family had no information on the 1.8 engine, or really Escorts at all. I needed to figure out how to make it quicker than a Prelude, and this place seemed really chill and layed back. Also, it seemed considerably more mature and less 'ricey' than 'other' Escort-oriented forums.

    I joined during a time when I was borderline banned from ERDT.

    i think it was tito who directed me over here, who was banned like a week before on ERDT :p

    just to clarify: I sell cigars, cigarettes, pipe tobacco and all the accessories you could need to go with them. Do I feel guilty? No. Everyone makes choices, to smoke or not to smoke. to surf worthless web pages or to hang out on feoa.

    people want them, you sell them. you don't force them to buy them, nor to light them up and inhale them.

    we all know the consequences in this day and age. they get cancer, emphysema, or what have you, they brought it on themselves.

    I started having online access in like 1998, so i started searching for escort stuff sincve magazines had nothing. I found Nepa, but soon after when i was about to become a paying member it dissapered. Then my bro found teamzx2.com and escortracing.com, hence he had a first year zx2 like 1 month after they came out. so hea was searching for parts. The yone guy i new if anyone can remember that far back was a guy name DEZ and he had inboost.com for a while, he was into escort performance back from 1994 he used to race, adn he was building up a zx2 with south county autosports. had some of the first header and turbos for zx2's. well i joined escortracing back when they were fighting for 200 members. and frequented it. so eventually we had a cali meet. I meet a few people that i hang with still today. Dimwatt, schwinboy, Rob from zxtuner, and socalbrownrice, who was workign for xs aT THE TIME AND was building a KILLER ZX2 TURBO. anbd i met donnie that nite also, he was still building the motor for the gt. and i was told about feoa, i joined but i was confused by the format back then. it has changed and i still frequent it now. and Donnie has come to a few of our meets. we went to the block of orange one time and he did bring the gt with the new motor, like the day he finished it. and once we meet again a few months back with the guy who runs clubprotege also. and now mazdaracer come and hangs with us, same as back then we meet crankor with a lowered blue wagon. and wathced that car transform to what it is now. but it has been sold to another member and beigh changed engine wise now.


    well sorry for the long post just , oh well. i will let you go now! lol
