This week I will be picking up a r reg 3 door
I've got most of the stuff I need already like kit and bumpers
I was determined the si would be my last escort but escort number 15 will be arriving soon.

Wish me luck

Whyd you keep getting rid of them?

Ever noticed that putting "anal" in front of some ford model names makes them sound funny? Fiesta, Probe, Ranger. Explorer, Maverick etc... lol

I've had loads over the years from mk3 onwards
Rot set in a few of my mk3s
A crash killed my mk4
A utter robbing b&£)ard took my xr3i
One of my mk5s had utter electric failure
And the other was a rot box
And my si had an accident on a four post lift
And the others have been traded in
This time all the stuff came up at the right price so thought one last go.

Cut a long story short I'm just daft......

You're not the only one.  Sometimes I wonder how much simpler my life would be if my main criteria for buying a car wasn't that it has to be a 3 door Escort and how much money I'd have probably saved.

Small update the escort has arrived some good points some bad.
Good points:
It a good base to start
The interior seems pretty clean
It starts

Bad points:
The exhaust sounds like it's had it (but it's going anyway)
The tailgate won't open with the key
Big ass crack in the front bumper
It's smells rank

Haven't got it on a ramp yet to look underneath I'm expecting the chassis legs to have had it and some sill work to be done.
But not bad for a swap for a peugeot 106 I got for 60 quid at an auction BARGIN.

IMG_20150601_145444_zps1lhn7bqd.jpgIMG_20150601_152122_zpswlse12bg.jpg

Needs a little TLC (In which a little means a lot)

Rust does look bad to me, but fair play for taking this one. Count me in for the updates. You're a braver man than I.
