About “Sporty”

1999 Ford Escort ZX2

My Dad bought this car when he wreck his truck in the snow about 5 years ago. We got his truck fixed and the car just sat around only drove a little bit until I could drive it, about two years later. Has about 60,000 miles on it.

About “Street Tank”

I am the fourth owner, and I bought it from my buddies brother while DirtyBastard is out of service. When he got it from the second owner, it had a hole in the middle of the drivers seat. he told us that the first owner was some ol' lady who supposedly had a tailbone problem. We suspect it might have been a tail lol

:edit:
was to be the fourth owner, ran out of work for a bit so i couldnt finish paying. i might still buy it from him later.
