life and death of my rally-x car.

Me and two friends had pooled together on a rally-x car that we could beat on and destroy. It was an escort GT we named the Upscort. we bought it for $100. Had some fun, and after 2 years and thousands of hard miles, it finally gave up the ghost.

here is a compolation video of the best $100 we ever spent.

enjoy!

i think we are going to enjoy the extra space in the driveway for a bit. And the odds of finding another car that was so strong is slim. kinda like catching lightning in a bottle, twice.
