My little brother who is 17 bought an 07 Ford Escape 4cyl 5mt this summer. I bought the Focus from my good friend, because I knew the car so well, as a winterbeater because the LegaSTi is stored and the SVX in project.

My brother liked the Focus much more and I kinda liked having the Escape as a stock car, for once I didn't drive a flashy car and it felt pretty nice to be honest.

But having all those manual cars I was pretty sick.. I wanted a reliable, automatic, AWD car. Yes, at 20 years old, I bought a ''Grown Up car''. So I am now selling the 07 Escape, gave the Focus to my brother, and..

I bought this 2009 Ford Escape XLT V6 3.0 AWD. Fully loaded, with Sync, and everything.

But i still wanted a little life in this truck and style..

LED liscence plate
Yellow fog bulb and vinyl
Plastidip the grill
LED interior dome light

To be done:
New Ford emblems because they are messed up
HID 4300K headlights

That's pretty much it. It's my DD, so no big projects! I just want to make it younger looking lol.

I got thrown off at first by the speedo. "WTF?!?! How does an Escape get a 200MPH speedo?!?!" Then I remembered, you're in Canada! :)

Not a bad little truck especially cuz most of it is built by Mazda. :)
