Last Call: This M5 engine Escort will get you through the week

This might be one of my favorite Hillclimb videos of all time. This Ford Escort is powered by the I6 from an E34 M5 echoing through the mountains is music to my ears. I mean, most hillclimb videos with good quality audio are awesome but this one really put a smile on my face. And if we can’t go outside to watch racing, then I guess we’ll have to settle for solid videos of it and that’s what I’m here to provide.

Plus, on top of the exhaust, the car just looks great. The widebody and the wing complete the look as it swerves through the track. I’ve never been to a Hillclimb event but hopefully, I can soon. Any recommendations on which ones are a must-see?

My name is Colby Buchanan and I love all things car-related all the way from rusted 240sx's to McLaren Senna's and of course I have a soft spot for American Muscle. You can spot me in my bone stock '06 350z named MackenZ.


  1. Pretty odd choice for a ‘scort. Wonder did they push it back through the firewall for weight distribution? Normally escort builders stick with 4 – be it a Millington or a donor like a Honda S2000 engine, and even a V8 is handier lengthwise.
