    Sa Arizona kami. But, I spent a lot of my growing years in northern Nevada. Nagpunta kami sa RP for my schooling (HS) in 1975 tapos bumalik ako mag-isa sa Nevada back in 1985....

    We're here in Arizona. But my Laser is in storage back in Nevada. Medyo malayo ang drive (9-10 hours) plus we only visit maybe once or twice a year.

    (Shucks. Naubusan ng Tagalog. Switched to english so my brain can catch up to my 2-finger typing.)

    Anyway, my wife wants me to sell the Laser to my nephew because it's a drain to my insurance. We'll see. I might end up doing so.

    And yup. I put 171k miles on the Laser's original Mitsu engine. It would've lasted longer if I remembered to change the 2nd timing belt about 50k miles earlier. When that timing belt broke, I lost 13 of the 16 valves. Anyway, We put a 2nd engine in there and had the original engine reconditioned which is now a spare, also in storage with the car.

    Anyway (back to Tagalog).... sa Las Pinas kami nanirahan. Love the place, wanna go back for a visit.....

    Add: The top two Laser pics were back in Nevada. The bottom one was taken in Idaho. I'm at the top pic with my Pop who's carrying my nephew.

    :lol: It's hard to imagine any four-pot lasting 171,000 miles, but I'll presume those aren't traffic miles... I've got friends over there who've put 300,000 miles on theirs...

    Here in the Philippines, just getting to your 200,000th kilometer (130,000m) is an unbelievable achievement, as the traffic and heat conspire to kill anything within 150,000 kays...

    And I care about the Contour! Pics!

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    I'll see about getting some newer pics of the Contour. It's hard enough with the Sonata. Nakakahiya naman mahuli akong nag-tetake ng litrato, esp with a Hyundai..... what more with a Ford na medyo bulok na?
