pictures of my former car before focus. this is why im turbo escort geroge.
290 whp, 300 wtq. 1.8 t3/t4 turbo. haltech programmed, ground control suspended with tokicos, brembos with 13in f rotors and 12in r rotors. and a little more stuff.------------------- so of course when needed another toy stayed with the same theme, blue, hatch. not alot of hot hatches out there and ford kept it going with the foci. of course sooner or later im going to have to change to trbosvtgeorge. time will tell.

Were those pictures taken before the rear dics brakes were installed? A nice looking Escort! Your subject line says R.I.P. Did you wreck it?

That's exactly the same color that I had on my 92 escort! I have to give you credit for adding some flair to the basic boxy shape of it. If one were to look at it really quickly, it could almost pass as an older Suby 2.5 RS coupe.

Question for you too. Did you have to roll the rear fenders to get 17" wheels to fit underneath there? I always hated how the rear wheel topline was lower than the front.

its a 91 gt always had rear disc. yes had to roll and cut fenders for 17s and 18s to fit. yes alot of people use to say at a glance it was a subie. had a lsd as well heavier axles. if anyone knows i went to canada to get the car engine done up. advanced tuning. guy named steve in montreal. totaled my car earlier this year. suspension set up more for auto x rather than daily driver so when had it on the streets alot of oversteer so u can guess what happened then. when went to switch lanes while running on highway rear end stepped out. hello guard rail 180 and thats all she wrote.----------- my engine bay looked exactly like one of the members with the 323 gtx here. defitnetly miss the scort but the foci help me ease the pain and transition.

I couldn't even begin to imagine auto-x these cars just because they were so unbalanced from the factory. What is it like 80/20? lol The rear end always wanted to step around me all the time. It was almost like driving a small pickup truck at times. Too bad she's a goner tho.

Those cars were so much fun. I had one for about a week before a coworker offered me a deal I couldn't refuse. He wrecked it three days later.
