I have a personal dislike of social media so i dont buy i to facebook and that at all.

 

It aint just you.

 

I have never liked the whole facebook/twitter shite and personally never even consider using them after looking into them once.

 

"social networking" that does nothing but encourage the exact opposite.... I cant be the only one that strikes as bizarrely hypocritical?

 

I prefer a forum based setup simply because it creates a environment for a more easy paced discussion where someone can consider and take their time wording their thoughts and limits the amount of foaming mouth retards that think they have to answer every comment as fast as possible regardless of what the response might be.

 

to ALL you facebook fanboys.......a small titbit of friendly advice.

 

get a girl

have sex

go the pub

tadaaaaaa..... now your really "socializing" :thumb:

you have to really ask yourself something when you consider trying to insult me.. do I really seem like the type of person who gives a flying shite covered monkey F*ck about your pointless comment?.. I'll save your deminished intellect the struggle..that'd be a "No"
Anything can be made to fit.... thats what hammers are for silly!
All posts are the view of the writer and not necessarily that of..... actually no, I dont really give a flying flame toasted turd, dont read my posts if you dont like em R-tard.
no one can accuse me of being "two-faced", Ill call you a nob behind your back and to your face... the latter preferably so I can watch you uselessly blow your lid
being directly honest with your opinion may not make you well liked but it will get you appreciated by the worthwhile few with the sense to understand.... Id rather be appreciated for who I am than liked for what I'm not.

I just think that people do things just for the internet attention

Taking pictures of themselves for example....or leaving comments like 'im so sad but dont ask me why' knowing full well everyones going to ask

How much did you pay for it? I paid a pricey 995 5 years ago.


Grand sum of 200 quid

I guess it's hard to run an enthusiast site when folk just aren't that enthusiastic about the cars anymore.
 
I feel the site and members have been let down by the owners not adapting and trying to keep it going. I'm not saying they themselves should have kept carrying the torch, everyone grows up and priorities in life change, but maybe letting someone else have a go would have been an idea rather than just watch it die over the last few years.


I do agree here. Other thing is that bigger and better cars do come along. Although i think the escort looks better.....the focus for example is a superior car in every way so the every day average joe will probs go for the newer, less rusty and overall 'better' focus (as an example)

Honestly, I'd like to have a new car. But something just keeps me attached to my escort. Something to do with just how easy they are and there looks as you said can be fantastic (unless you're an idiot with terrible mods)

Generally speaking.....they are good looking cars.

And the last escorts are on the verge of the 'electronic age' of motoring which makes them unbelievably easy to mod. Ford make it even easier by having a standard fitment for parts across their entire vehicle range.

Look at my car for example. Proper ford parts catalogue frankenstein

Hi guys, I don't getting here much at all. My escort is on my mum's drive and I can only get back now and again to work on the old girl. I drive a st150 daily and like someone said forums like STOC are thriving. It is a big shame when I come on here and not see much happening, I'm obviously one of the people that doesn't help matters :( but i know there will still be the same good names dropping regular posts. If it wasn't for u guys, evo wouldn't be alive today I think :)
I could never let her go I've had it 6 1/2 years now and it's rusty as hell but i love it. Really need to start a thread of my own.

Get that thread sorted my man.

Rust does not matter.It's an Escort and that's all that matters mate.

If all the cars on here were pristine then we would be called the Triumph TR6 Club or something just as pompous!!!!

That's the joy of EVO.

If it's an Escort,then we wanna see it and welcome it.

Regards Andy

I will when I get time to take a few photos and sit down and do a little write up. I'm on a little road trip to Wales tomorrow to collect some mk5 doors with manual windows and oem upper and lower braces. Wanted mk5 doors so I can continue to remove all the unwanted cables and window motors etc, she's on a diet ;)

I'm still around ;)

Obviously been here a long time from the days when I had a lot of moderating to deal with. Seems odd not having so much to do on here these days regarding moderating.

Need to stick around and keep an eye on the Shawdreamer just in case ha haa.
