That could take a while, wife's cousin used to do some demo derbysΒ  he decided 'after a few smart sodas' that he would test the limits of a 351 in an old galaxy 500. He fired it up and held her to the floor, after 15 minutes or so he got tired of that and wedged a concrete block on the pedal, I'll bet that thing screamed like that for another 20 minutes before it slowly lost RPM's and died, funny thing is after it sat a couple hours he hit the key and it fired back up.Try that with one of these beer can motors they use now.

I had a 1982 Escort and it was the single worst POS I have ever had. Absolute piece of junk!Β  It had a 1.6 liter, 4 squirrel cage motor with an aluminum head on cast iron block. Used to go through head gaskets every 10K miles or so, think I replaced them 5 times.

I don't think it would have red lined for 30 seconds......

Of course it could have only 810 miles and still be totally rotted out, if driven in winter.

Almost makes me want to show up with no money so he can blow it up on his own.

Another funny one you could do is. Show up and say you forgot the money. He blows it up and then pull out the money and say " I guess i did have the money, forgot to check that pocket" and leave him standing there with a blown up Escort. Of course him blowing it up would be a service to society so nobody else gets stuck with it. Call it community service.

Honestly though if he was closer and this was legit I’d buy it today. Β Great buy for a car I can beat around daily driving. Β
