  1. Well the time has come to say goodbye to my old friend of 8 years and all escorts. My si is my last and I put it to sleep today. Its been a pleasure owning this car but I've got to let it go it's been a hard choice to make. The pain of stripping it down today was hard but it had to be done. I've learned a lot working on this car and from you guys and I have no idea what I'm gonna replace it with I may keep its ecu in a glass jar like a brain lol. I'll always love the ford escort but I won't be getting another one I've 13 I think that's enough and hopefully it will keep other escorts on the road. I want to say thanks for the advise and support you all showed me in my build thread and wish you all the luck with your projects thanks guys.
