Just bought 1996 Escort - Newbie ?'s...
Hi everyone! I just picked up a 1996 Escort...some details...
Black on Grey
My mechanic knew I was looking for a car I could pick up cheap so when the owner of this car blew the motor he offered to buy it from her. Apparently she never changed the oil in the car. I picked up the car for $1,200...its mint, I mean not a scrach or dent...and that price includes my mechanic installing another engine. Honestly, I looked at the car for 3 seconds before I bought it, so I really don't know anything else about it. I know he will have the new engine in it by next week, so I have a week to look for stuff.
So, here are my questions...thanks in advance..
1. Are there any decent websites for overal info on the 96 escort?
2. What mods are worthwhile?
3. What does a stick 96 hatchback run 1/4s in?
I really think this will be a fun car to Auto-X and 1/4 and I can't wait to get started.
