    It seems to me that this would be the perfect place to post parts for your Escort rather than junking it. There are probably a lot of people that are looking for parts for their car here than you can find anywhere else, especially with an old Escort that are no longer in the junkyards.

    You have to have 5 posts before you can post in classifieds. After that you wait a couple hours and then you can post in classifieds

    because over the years there have been MANY spam accounts. the minimum post count helps to weed out bots and spammers by making sure they are actually people. after 5 posts you should be allowed to post in the classified section

    As marclar stated having a post count requirement helps keep Spam and bots at Bay. It also helps keep scammer away too.
