Haynes Repair Manual 1981-1990 Ford Escort

I have a Haynes repair manual for a 1981-1990 Ford Escort in very good condition for sale for $12 This same manual would cost you about $20. at an auto parts store. There is very little if any dirt or grease on any of the pages and all pages and cover are intact.

This is also the correct manual for an '81-'90 Mercury Lynx.

did you try craigslist or free newspaper ads?

i've sold a lot of unused items lately to help ends meet. funny, i get more responses from the paper w/out pics than craigslist w/ them!

I haven't tried that. I was just putting it on some of the automotive forums that I am a member of thinking someone on some of them might be able to use it, and probably would get used instead of just being put on a shelf and forgot about.

If my brother-in-law hadn't decided to junk his '88 Escort with about 50k miles on it (he just didn't drive it for a few years...)

i didn't realize that the prices had gone up so much. here's a link for owners manuals, chilton/haynes repair, and some factory repair manuals...

I can't believe he junked a NEW car with only 50K miles. One of my '88's has 498K miles. The other one has 79K.

You see a car's potential in your capable hands. Most people see a money pit that will give them repeated trouble and cost too much in mechanic bills.

I can often see a car's potential should it be in capable hands like yours, but I can't ignore the reality of what I can do with it...

Well, I can ignore it for a little while...I fantasize every day that I'll repair the Buick's mechanical issues myself (which is almost realistic), then I'll do some mechanical modifications (which is not so realistic - retrofit transmission and fuel injection are light years beyond my ability), then I'll be so happy about how the car runs and drives that I'll do interior restoration (realistically within my skillset but not my funding) and pay someone to do the exterior (totally impossible).

In real life, I'm probably going to do enough repairs to drive it, then drive it sadly into the ground and eventually junk it.
