New member - first post.

I just read this whole thread....took 2 days though :-D

I just got an 01 Echo with 197K miles. I think it was used for long drives b/c it does not have the wear of getting in and out as much.

I've already done minor mods: Delete rear seats and brackets, delete rear seat belts and brackets, delete rear door panels, delete all interior trim from lower areas, delete spare and jack, delete trunk plastic parts, delete floor mats, delete passenger wiper, delete wheel covers and add warm air intake tube and 44 psi new tires

I've gotten over 45MPG last few refills and that's pretty good since I live at 5500+ ft in the hills and drive to work in a valley - 78.6 miles each way.

Looking frwd to doing more of the mods listed on here.........

The Echo-Troll is now parted out and most of the pieces are in the process of being swapped to my Toyota Echo for Drag racing and also to be my winter beater.

Maybe this car is dead but the parts will be re-used and continue to perform like they did in the past.

So this is pretty much the end of this thread. The Echo-Troll was a legend and will never be forgotten!

Thanks for the memories. I hope that you'll be moving on to a pure electric vehicle as your next adventure. You might remember that I brought my Honda Fit EV to the 2014 SMCC Economy Run in Charlemagne Q.C. I think it was you that I let test drive it after the event.

I'm driving a Chevy Bolt EV now, with three times the autonomy.
