- That's my Escort!!
- I miss the car....but at least it's finally getting some "air time"
- The SAAB's nice, too.
- When gas's getting $ 2.50/gal SAAB's unik "Free wheel" is coming handy!
(Saab has a neat system; lift the gas and tranny disengages= better gas milage. Plus you can shift without the clutch - handy for left-foot brakers.)
Damn! Thats a nice looking Escort. Makes me miss mine. Sure wish that I could afford to bring it over. What's the spec on the car? I see it has a 2.0 with Esslinger adjustable Cam gear and Gp. 4 strut tops. Does it have an SCCA legal cage or is it still the original Ford Motorsport cage?
That is a very sharp '96. I was going to run T-Bird last year but it had teething problems and we never made it out of Portland. But we gave it a valiant effort, including an engine pull. We might have made it but the crew ran out of energy, If Akenys have gone thru it, it will be a very nice car. It sure is red.
I still want to nav a rally in a "96. JOHN, are you listening? I also would like to run in a citroen. Or anything vintage.
