I was on my way to drill this morning and I passed a fellow Guardsmen in his escort, he passes me, I pass him, he passes me, I pass him and leave him an 1/8 mile behind me. I get to the armory and he said he hit the governor at 105 and I blew his doors off :D

some times when im bored I watch super2ner on tv and they spend 300 bucks to get 5 HP with a cold air kit, 500 for a chip that gets them 25 HP I think they have no idea what bang for the buck is or no replacement for displacement

although they are doing wonders for the N2O industry. they spend lots of money on the kits to blow the welds on their maniforlds (if they are metal at all :rolleyes: ) I like that because thats more money they got to develop the kits for real cars with real power.

Last summer while on vacation, my buddy and I met up with some kid who thinks he's a mechanic. He was talking about all this stuff he was going to do to make his Escort a hot rod...So far he had the heavy stereo in the trunk mod. Well, I don't remember exactly what his plans were, but they were pretty damn funny, especially when my friend, who actually is a mechanic, was attempting to disprove his theories but the kid didn't want any part of it. He actually wanted to meet up with my buddy to race his Talon.

Anyway, that story wasn't that funny here...guess ya had to be there! ;-) Point is, Escort = Weak. Escort Owners = ???

Cheers,
Jeff

I love stories of Caddys that blow away stangs & camaros & even Vettes...woohoo!
Hubby had a 78(I think) TransAm he bought brand new ...well you know you buy something bad you wanna take her out race. He raced quite a few cars & won, but one night he was at a light, next to him a guy in a big ol' Eldorado, the light turns green and the Eldo blows the doors off his T/A..needless to say, he traded it in the next day! :) hehe..:banana:

I had a "77" TA that wouldn't pull a greased string out of a cats @ss. It did have good top end though. I got pulled one night after a run down a deserted Interstate by a cop that I didn't see til I was almost home. He said he saw me get on it and followed me at 110mph and thought he would never see me again. I was going so fast that I never saw him. I missed my exit due to going to fast to stop and took the next exit and turned around to go back to my exit. He caught up to me at that exit and asked me if I knew why he pulled me. I said he would only give me a 70 in a 55 if I told him how fast I was going. I still don't know how fast. Speedo only registered 100 and RPM's were at 3,000. I let out of it at 4,200 RPM so go figure. No ticket and a warning that was well deserved.

Like I said, the TA isn't a dragster but it has some top end.

I cant wait to burn some people in the Q. I have only had it a day, and it has some serious power, more than you would think. It takes a while for OD/torque convt. to kick in, nothing that isnt expected on a 4000lb car. Off the line, it is GOLDEN. An 8000 redline, how couldnt it be good. Although, you can watch the gas guage go down when you slam it :D

I had a guy in a VW boxy car, forget what it was, try to race me in my old 76 SDV with the anemic 500! He didn't stand a chance, but he tried had!
On another note, my Dad's 90 Vette barely could keep up with this turbo VW!
If it counts, I've blown away countless mini vans with my 94 Concours and my new STS!
