That is one nice and tastefully modified escort van mate. Is it 4x4 or RWD?

All the best with modding it.

i bet after all that work you'd proper had your fill of her! You always miss old cars, you forget the trouble they caused you and only remember the good bits. my mate and i have the 'old car syndrome' theroy, its very similar to 'previous girlfriend syndrome'. Get em back and wish you hadn't.

i saw it on Ebay, did you keep the buyer id? trace it that way.
