Re: One for all the other Escort fans on here...

have seen this car at car shows and at racetune, the paint is stunning. those wheels would also look nice on my car :-)

i havent seen the car for a while though.

You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.

Cossie head is over 2k on its own in Australia, although you can pick one up in England a bit cheaper.

They're worth $MoreThenMostOfUsCouldAfford.

I wish I could afford one too, but I'll make do with the Pinto.

I'm glad to see a few people on here appreciated that link, I still go and have a look at that page every now and again, only problem is, after looking at that car, I have to try and get all the drool out of my keyboard...
