Turbo 1998 Ford DC escort ZX2



I’ve owned this Ford DC escort ZX2 for 9 years now, and I’ve been modifying it ever since I first bought it. Many parts have been added and removed over the course of these 9 years, because as car enthusiasts, that’s what we do. We’re constantly improving on our cars, and this is the perfect example of that. I will always improve on this car.
