The 2012 Orphan Car Show is this weekend in Ypsilanti. Their rules say that brands have to be dead for at least eight years to be allowed in the show so we won’t see any Mercury cars there until 2019. Still, Mercury is dead so in honor of the Orphan Car Show, here’s a very nice 1968 Mercury Cougar. Lover of the unusual as I am, of course I’ll walk by ten Mustangs to see one early Cougar. This car, by the way, is for sale for $23,000. To be honest, as nice as the car is, that sounds a bit high for me, but then the owner seemed to really love his car, so I think the price is intentionally unrealistic, silly money.
What folks are saying:
"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
