I finally bought a car to haul my *** around in while the Thunderbird is under the knife, so now I can really get to work on it. It's a dark metallic blue '98 Ford ZX2 5-speed. It's actually pretty nice inside (albeit cramped), and it's not as slow as I thought it'd be. It's nice to have a manual car again, too. I got it for $3650, and it's only got 41K on it. It had a slight front collision, not even enough to pop the bags, which had been repaired very nicely. There was almost no evidence of the hit at all, just a few bent fins on the rad, a little overspray on the bumper, and some unpainted bolts on the fender. Overall it's in very nice condition. I pick it up later this afternoon, I'll post some pics once I get it cleaned up.

Actually, my buddy's Focus is getting a 302/RWD conversion before too long here. I'd love to do something similar to the Escort, but it's gotta get good mileage. It definitely needs a short throw shifter, though. I can barely reach 3rd gear because I have to sit pretty far back. I may mod this car out a little to make it competitive in autocross, but nothing major since it is a daily driver.
