Last time I was in Houston I took out a mitsu mirage rental, and must have neutral dropped it 20 times before I brought it back. I bottomed out trying to use speed bumps as ramps. The thing was ticking an crackling when I brought it back. Then I parked it in the old "emerald isle" and forgot about it.

Next rental car was a 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan SE. Almost 200HP V6. So I put on the e-brake, and jammed the gas down. I screeched down the main strip of downtown burning out this minivan. People probably thought I was some punk in my parents van. It was hilariousm, and I think I overheated the brake, because I couldn't turn it off for about 5 minutes afterwards.

Last rental was my 24' U-haul truck. It's the second biggest one they have (to the 26 footer), and it was a manual tranny. Worst truck ever. Tried burning out, and it wouldn't work, the whole thing just jumped and skipped all crazy. Still fun though.<img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

Hehe! I am renting a car right now too until I replace one of my fuel injectors. I got a Mitsu Lancer.

For about the same price as a Tib, I would buy another Tib any day.

hey watch the escort venting that is what i own, it is at 140,000 and going strong. take a look at www.escortracing.com and you will see what's going on the "piece of ****" escort world. we have a 2 escorts that will be running around 300 hp on low budgets. i'm not really bothered about the stereotypical response but just check out the site and it might change your guys minds a little. it has changed my life forever. peace

Any car can be made fast if the engine is rebuilt.

Escort motors are not very strong in stock form.

I think the only reason that people don't like the escorts is because the typical escort driver is some 18 year old punk with a bone stock escort, some kinda ghetto lights and/or ground effects, and a huge Ford sticker on the back windshield.

I give respect to anyone who works on their cars to do something good.

here's a fact, an escort 1.9 liter motor can hold up to 9lbs of boost in stock trim. pretty healthy, the reason for the higher boost is the low ass compression bout 9:1 stock. the stock motor at least mine isn't worth much 88 hp with a nicer 110 tourque. i'm swapping mine with a newer 2.0 sohc same as mine but with a better intake manifold and different crank 116hp 124 tourque. i'll give a list of mods to give a comparison with you guys.

LOL, yeah that car was not only a car, but it also massaged your fingers too.

If you put your fingers between the window and the panel, the window was vibrating and massaging your finger... LOL
