How long have you not owned an escort? So why you still here?!

Just curious really, I know there's alot of people on this site that no longer own an escort but still frequent it on a regular basis. With comments such as "the most unethusiast enthusiasts site" and general recommendations in mechanical section often saying not to do engine transplants etc but instead just save for a quicker/newer car I just wonder how many of us here no longer own an escort? I'm guessing quite a proportion don't own one now and don't have rose tinted shades on believe the escort to be a car that its quite simply not, hence the reality check a number of newbies get when they come on asking for miracles but with no budget.

 

Anyway for me its been 2 years since I sold my last one. I still come on here to pass time at lunchtime, there's always an amusing topic to read or someone spitting the dummy out. Will I ever own another escort...prob not, possibly another RS2K if the right one came along on my doorstep for the right price, otherwise onwards and upwards.

I've had Escorts on and off for the last 15 years. I've not owned one for a year or so though, and to be honest doubt I will have another now. This is the main forum I post on though so not looking to move on anytime soon.

4-5 Months now, last escort was Wench the Escort 55 Van.

 

I will own one again, not for a few years though, once we are settled in Belgium & finished the building work I will own either a MK4 XR3i and restore it to its original form or a MK5 RS. I deffo have the space to have one as well as my current cars, but its just finding the time, otherwise I would have one alot sooner.

Was an ok cheap car 5 years back. Now there is so much more choice and better spec cars for the same money and lower insurance. I have one but it won't see the road for at least a few months yet. I'm building it for track use, why? Because it was cheap and if I was to crash it I wouldn't cry over it. If it was a better car I would. I'm here because I have friend here, a little bit of helpfull knowledge and enjoy the odd thread, granted evo is getting quieter and quieter on the interesting threads as of late. Il always pop in and buy/sell stuff but il only own another escort if I have to, or it's a bargain for pennys.
