>>>> The Slovakian Terror

6 posts in this topic

Well I feel like a big loser for still not posting

my 1959 Buick LeSabre two-door post

sedan, or the "Banana Boat" 1977 Cadillac

Coupe deVille in this sub-forum.

Both of these old GMs are, in different ways,

project cars of mine. The Buick was used as

a daily driver for 7000 miles last summer, and

is now receiving some over-due TLC. The 49

year old 364 cubic inch V8 is half appart.

The Banana on the other hand is my current

daily driver, a 4500lbs. "coupe" powered by a

seven liter pushrod Cadillac block. 13 mpg is

about all I'm getting since I drive it like I

stole it. Not very condusive to $4.15/ gallon

gasoline prices, esp. since I drive much more

than the average person.

Well, those two T1GH+ WH!P$ will get their

own writeups but for now I present to you:

"The Slovakian Terror"

1993 Ford Escort 4 door hatchback. 1.9 liter, 5-speed

- Obtained free from a local used car dealer/wholesaler

- Approx 130,000 miles, interior mint

- Gutted/de-windowed/race prepped in one afternoon

- A few $ spent at the local hardware store for chains & fluids

- Liberal amounts of fun with a sawzall & torch

I raced it back in June 2005 in the Star Speedway

"Demolition Debystyle "Free For All" Enduro Races.

Blown clutch & flex plate put it out of the race but

not before I used the Escort's relatively excessive

weight to push a Honda Civic hatchback into the

concrete wall at about 40mph.

A nice, clean, confirmed KILL!

P.S. for the record HE pushed me about three times

& kept harrasing me, I got confirmation of his car's

descript/# from my buddy in the stands through

my 2-way radio and went for this throat.

And THAT is what makes this little $hitbox Ford an

official, bonafide T!G#T WH1P$ car club member &

wins it a Rusty Jones Lifetime Achivement Award.

Now I'm going to let the photos do the talking. 8)

That is in better shape then the Shadow Dodgefans brother and him are working on. I still can't stop laughing that actually is kinda cool. So how does it drive?

I couldn't think of a better use for an old Messcort if I tried for a year. Course, I'd be saying that if it were in showroom condition with delivery miles only, too! :lol:

I hope Dodgefan is taking notes! Seriously, bro; gut the Shadow, give her the old Krylon touch, and send it off to heaven with a bang (or a couple dozen)!

Yup... it was a good time had by all.

Xcept for the dude with the small d!ck driving the Honda.

He had a head on collision with a 2-foot thick block of

concrete after I used some nasty mega under steer to

push him into the wall. I have it on tape!

While I have not seen the Shadow's carpet & door panels

off to inspect the oxidation damage I can hazard an

educated guess based on what I have seen.

All those nasty holes/rips in the Escort's wheel wells & in

the rocker panels was not evident until I kicked the slightly

bubbled paint with my combat boot to inspect just how bad

of a rot box I was dealing with.

Oh, and I forgot to mention, after I dragged it home and then

a few weeks later decided against re-using it in the Halloween

Howler since I got a free Mazda 626, I junked it, which back

in 2005 did not get you $175-$300 dollars, instead I towed it

up to a junkyard in NH and exchanged it for some car parts I

needed for my S10 and Camaro.
