Re: Are Escapes numbered?

Reace told us that #1 no longer exists. By the gleam in his eye, I suspect there is a story there. --Liz

Re: Are Escapes numbered?

I remember Tammy telling the story of the first one. She said that Reace took it to a trade show and the door was bungee-corded shut! Come a long way.

Re: Are Escapes numbered?

And I think we were at that trade show!!

I remember first talking to Reace many many years ago--and we had our small Boler--many upgrades to it done by Reace...and eventually got a 17B!!

Oh, my, Anna-Marie! You were at that trade show about ten years ago! You must know all about the history and lots more. You will have to enlighten us.

Re: Are Escapes numbered?

I was thinking the first one was cannibalized for a later brand new mold maybe?

Re: Are Escapes numbered?

Would the VIN number not have something to do with the inspections for certification rather than a count from one company specifically ?

Re: Are Escapes numbered?

When I picked up my Escape, Reace showed me the last three digits of the VIN, and told me these digits were the counters for the manufacturing sequence. I was interested in the serial number aspect as I had never seen an Escape before.

We have a 2004 17A which is number 20. #2 was at the rally in Osoyoos!
