About “Scorpio”

The flagship of Ford(Europe).

About “Sylvester”

(DISCLAIMER: The photo of this car is NOT the actual car, nor are any of the pictures in it's album. I don't think I ever bothered taking any pictures of the car)

This was just basic, economical transportation when that was what I needed. My '89 Beretta GT (Blue Jay) had succumbed to terminal engine management failure - it went through three of them over the course of eight months - so I had to find something we could afford fairly quickly. I bought this car used in mid-December 1999. It seems that the original owner decided that she really didn't want to drive a stick shift every day after all so she traded it in on a nearly identical 2000 model with an automatic. That was fine with me, because I could buy her old ride with only 7,700 miles on it for just a bit over half of it's original sticker price. The car served me well for the two years I had it. I sold it because my doctor prescribed a drug that made it impossible (or at least unwise... and ILLEGAL!) for me to drive.

 

Specs for “Scorpio”

2.0L DOHC

Specs for “Sylvester”

Just the standard equipment: the base 4 cylinder/5-speed combination. I never timed it's acceleration; it was transportation, and that's all. It had enough pep to merge with traffic on the notorious Schuylkill (Say "School-Kill") Expressway here in the Philly area, so that was adequate for my needs.

 

Factory Options for “Scorpio”

Electric Windows
Power Steering
FM Radio / CD Player
Sunroof
Heated Seats
etc.

Factory Options for “Sylvester”

I'm not sure... Was the AM/FM/Cassette Stereo standard? Other than that, I can't think of anything:
NO Power Windows
NO Power Door Locks
NO Power Seats
NO Power Antenna
NO Remote Trunk Release
NO Sunroof
NO Wings, Spoilers, Scoops, etc

 

Mods for “Scorpio”

No modifications listed.

Mods for “Sylvester”

I added a pinstripe to it, but that was about it.
