___________________Tokstad's Project '97___________
We've had this car about 2 years now. Originally I wanted an SVT Contour but after a little reading (and realizing it's a lot cheaper "not easier" to turbo the escort that I already had) There exists a lot more potential for the Fords entry level car than most realize! Thus the project begins....
This is the car originally ------------------------------> This is the car as of 5/18/04
The front was dropped 2" and I added a airdam and a mesh grille:
The wheels are Cobra R 17" manufactured by superior, the rubber is 205/40/17 by Kumho
The rear was dropped 1.5" I also added a 21MM GT swaybar to take out the body roll (during tight corners). A ZX2 spoiler was also added to take a little away from the cars bubble look.
