finally im getting my second car, the chevelles 6mpg is death right now, and im commuting to college this year (40 minute drive)

So i found this piece of ****, 96 escort, rated at 38mpg, 5 spd, 1.9 liter, dual air bags, runs great, $475. SUCH an ugly car, i'll post pics when i get home from work.

So now i have a daily driver, and i saved up $2500 to spend on a car, so now i have $2000 laying around, i only need 1 grand more to do cam/heads/suspension on my chevelle, so watchout dooms that chevelle is gonna be doing 11 second et's before you can say "malibu barbie mustang"

My friend had one. We used it as a field buggy. Until the fuil filter came apart and got sparked on the bettery. We had neighbors running over with fire extingguisher {sp}. We didn't have one so was running his hose from his house down the middle of a field, I think u could imagine hahaha.

Hell of a lot better than I thought it'd look for 475$.

But having a car you don't care about messing up kicks ass.

also have a car that punches you in the balls every time you get in the passing lane kicks ass.

Looks clean. That body style isn't too bad. I like them better than the newer escorts.

Nice find, seriously.
