You're viewing the original Hometown Invasion Tour website as it appeared when launched in 2006. Back then, a site built with tables and flash was commonplace. A few changes were made, but it appears as it did eleven years ago. A modern and responsive version is in the works.

Compass vs. Escort


Sunday, Oct 21, 2007 from Baraga, Michigan

The old car: 2007 Jeep Compass Limited 4x4 This car was a dream come true for a year. I got attached, very attached to it. It was fun to drive, getting all kinds of comments, always a conversation piece. I loved the satellite radio, sunroof, leather seats, and it was sooo comfortable. This is now the car that was.

The new car: 1998 Ford Escort Wagon This is my new car, ‘nuff said. It’s a big down grade. But it’ll keep me working hard to be able to have my own brand new car some day. Just keep your fingers crossed that I don’t have to put too much maintenance into it.

That pic must be from quite a while ago; I would think the trees around Baraga would be pretty bare by now.

If you move to the northwest, you'll never have to worry too much about car problems, public transit is always available. I bus from Kent to Renton for work and although it adds to the commute time, its worth it. Saves in gas and save on the environment.

Dude, don't despair on getting the Escort, esp. if it is a 5spd. Some virtues: cheap, very cheap to operate, roomy enough for four, good-handling. As Escort is sufficient and capable a car, as a 30-30 is a deer rifle in the woods. take care of it, and enjoy the near-40mpg mileage if you drive it right.
