^^^ Me Neither.

 

Andy fella, all forums are like this, some people on here are enthusiasts who enjoy the car, others came here because they own(ed) an Escort, and once they replaced it with a different car kind of gave up on the Escort but just remain here for the talk, topics, banter and now and again to help others.

 

I for one have always admired Escorts, I have had a few and now moved onto a newer better car, but I am still enthusiastic about Escorts, I grew up with them and my grandad built them in the factory in Halewood so I did see them there sometimes too, one day I will own another and keep it for a long time.

 

:cheers:

What I can say though is this site is nowhere near as cliquey as it used to be. I think most of the idiots back then have grown up somewhat.

 

 

Andyb0127- I'd recommend hanging around and assimilating yourself into the collective, then you won't notice it ;)

I'm not sure that they've grown up Stu, but Andyb0127, you'll soon get to recognise who to ignore.

I could name a few. :rolleyes:

aslong as its not me :D

i have been, and always shall be, an enthusiast (and a trekky :D)

even though i've moved over to the mondeo i know i will get another mk6 escort but this time as a 3 door and turn it into a track toy that wont look too out of place in a concours comp (not that it would win it with all the rust it will no doubt have:P)

i know full well, viewed purely as a means of transport there are far better cars than the escort, but that doesnt stop me loving them. like all these people with their crotch rockets. how practical are they - 'can you pop to the shops and get few things' 'err, no' but people still love their bikes. these people are enthusiasts :)

 

oh yeah, keep your eye out for when i put my foot in my mouth. seems to happen alot :rolleyes:

What you will find here are a fantastic group of people... many of who own or have owned an Escort (i fit into the latter) that are full of knowledge and always happy to help when something... lets be fair its an Ford (Fix Or Repair Daily) happens.

 

At the same time... we all like a bit of banter....

 

Can you honestly say you find the Escort to be the greatest car in the world?

 

Just try involve yourself and take any negative comments with a pinch of salt :thumb:

having been here from near enough day 1, I think it's the most cliquey it's ever been, but saying that, nowhere near the likes of PassionFord etc etc...

 

I wondering if what some people would call "negative attitude of so called enthusiasts", I would call "benefitting from people's experience"...

This is an interesting perception, which conflicts with mine. I don't perceive you as being in a clique, which can only mean I am in a clique. Perhaps I am and don't realise it.
