Out of all the cars I've owned, the ford escorts have been my favorites for some reason. I bought my current one a few years ago and it was in rough shape. Repainted it with my brother at the body shop he works at and replaced the engine in the car. The engine now has been bored .020 over, has had the cylinder head ported and polished, gasket matched the intake manifold and header. All new everything in the engine now. The next project for it will be the addition of a turbo setup. Will update with more info and pics as I go along

Nice car! I also have an 89 Ford Escort lx. Any tips on where I could find a front sway bar?
