Goodbye my old friend.


Recommended Posts

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.

Sad to hear of another death in the family!! :(  But hopefully you're be contributing to keeping my two on the road, even though the estate is off-road for some major TLC at the moment, the van is still used daily for work & going strong!! :thumb: Dyl

PS emailed re springs!

Well most of the bits have gone now apart from the bodykit and the shell was laid to rest

But on a plus side it's helped other projects

The springs have gone into a van

The seat have gone in another van (theme going on here)

The engine is going into a fiesta mk2

Exhaust has gone onto a seat Ibiza

Fiesta mike has the headlights, steering wheel and gear knob

And the alloys are going on a xr3i

So not all bad news

With the funds raised I've managed to do a deal on a 1.6 3 door which I should be picking up next week hopefully

So another thread coming soon (with just me working on it this time)
