About “Sunny”

(DISCLAIMER! This is NOT the actual car. I don't have any pictures of it anymore. I found this one on line)

This was my first car. My Grandmother bought it new on New Years Eve 1964, and it was she that named it "Sunny" My dad spent most of the following weekend installing those knobbly clear plastic seat covers and seat belts in the car for her. She was a simple woman with simple tastes, so she didn't want or need anything fancy. My dad talked her into getting a few dealer-installed options just for safety's sake, like a driver's side rear-view mirror, a day-night mirror inside, two-speed wipers with a windshield washer, back-up lights, and a heater. That's right, folks - all of that was optional! It didn't have a radio. The only options on the car from the factory were the 194cid inline-6 and, believe it or not, a grille guard on the front bumper!

About “Odin”

This is my 1999 Ford Escort SE that I recently bought as my daily driver / winter beater so that I can begin work on the T-Bird project.

I don't have a lot planned for this little car but it is also a side project I am working on and to practice with. I am mainly going for a rally and tuner look due in fact to it being an l4 (I also like the Escort Cosworth a lot). I plan on spending a couple weeks at most modifying it.

More to come...
