that to an escort... riiiiiiiiight
They originally bought it to tow a 25' Flagstaff 'SHAMROCK' Expandable travel trailer..
I said "Hey, if I work my *** off, can I take on 3/4 of the car payments, half the insurance, and pay half of the gas, and we call it mine?"
So I drove that until January 16th when I blew 3 lifters..
Replaced all 16 of the bastards.
Then I got too deep in the hole after a rear differential (From hole shots, I grenaded the thing inside the case.. New axle required. Picked one up w/ 45K mi on it for $1,500)
A/c system overhaul was somewhere around $1,400
Other random various engine parts ; $3K
They helped me w/ the parts, but the truck was only driven once by them (up to Oshkosh, WI)
That, and to emissions testing
Otherwise, it was pretty much all me.
Dude, i really did. I was in major love with it, it was such a beast
I bought the escort because I didn't wanna pay gas prices like that anymore.. $120 to fill the damned thing to the top
something like a 50some gallon tank in it..
I saw an escort some old lady down the street was selling for $800 so I jumped on it.
It had a new centerforce clutch in it, too >=]
was a fun two days
