1980 Mercury Zephyr
it’s not a cop, Jody

Cop or not?  When you come speeding up behind on of the Frat’s little sisiters flashing your brights, it’s sometimes hard to tell.

The Best of Times

1973 Plymouth Fury
the ultimate road warrior

Despite $1.30 to 1.40 for a gallon of gas and astronomical insurance rates… Some of these cars are used solely for transportation to work or school.  Other common uses are for mobile parties and for activities prohibited by a recent Supreme Court decision.  One individual’s “beast,” as he called it, looked like a combination para-military mobile command post (replete with numerous clubs, a Fuzzbuster, and a notorious spotlight), and a mobile party store.  Such blatantly obscene law-ignoring vehicles were, fortunately, very, very rare…

1979 Mercury Marquis
where have I seen this one before?

1988 Mercury Tracer

parked, but not unoccupied
can’t see the burn marks from here

Where I saw one: Getting on the 51 today.
Nostalgia Value: 5/10
Baseline: 0 – I never owned one.

+1 for being a Ford-badged Mazda. Way better than being a Ford-badged Kia. +1 because I almost bought one, after my Festiva suffered it’s critical ass implosion, +1 for orange dash lights, +1 for not burning to the ground the night I set one on fire, +1 because Dribble crashed hers under a semi, mooting the fact that I torched a brand new car while hammered on gasoline/everclear cocktails.

I nearly bought one, then the future Mrs. talked me into a Suzuki Swift instead.  What the FUCK was i thinking.  (Besides “indulge the GF and get laid”)?
