Heres my new ride while i fix the red chevette! 47K miles 2 owners from new full tank of petrol tax and test till August £170 Barganous! As I'm just going to be smoking around it it I'm not doing anything mechanical to it modification wise. To try and make it look a bit cooler so far ive Matt blacked the bonnet, super low springs, painted up the steels and done the roof in holographic gold chequers! (oh and fluffy dice!!)
Any ideas/suggestions as to further modifications are all greatfully received (as long as they are cheap, I'm poor now I'm rebuilding the red one!)
it is worse than it looks in the pictures, but some of the rat cars ive seen make it look showroom. i just don't know what else to call it, scruffy or a bit rotten just don't sound as cool. I'm trying to mod it as cheap as posible and along the rat/euro style sort of root.
That looks mint for 170 quid! Was it an ebay special? Funny how some cars with rallying pedigree can go for so little money and yet if it were an escort it would've made at least 4 times what you paid.
I've got nothing against all you escort owners out there,I've owned one road car and helped build two rally cars,they're great,fun cars.Just think its not right them been worth sometimes double what other rally bred cars are.
Some more recent pics, more stickers and de-bumpered
The car was advertised on the chevette owners group web site, and its a joke (well its actually quite good in this case) how much more expensive escorts are but the price rise is coming. a Standard chevette hatch clean and origional but no T+T and a siezed cluch just sold for £750 on the bay! thats why I'm buying them all now!
