Lincoln Town-truck-what?

The fact that this is somewhere in Asia baffles me.

Ford Taurus/Mercury Sable at 1985 Chicago Auto Show
This was when the Taurus was supposed to be the biggest fucking deal in the history of the automobile…
I wasn’t born yet, but the way I see it, it blew people’s minds for no other reason than its styling and shape. It was revolutionary in looks in an era of boxiness (Though I think a lot of the boxier cars of the mid 80’s look nicer today than a first gen Taurus does when I see them.) Ford’s always been very good at updating their cars. They make the outgoing model look like a piece of shit instantly. If you don’t believe me, take a look at the 5th generation Taurus in comparison to the newest ones…

Interesting juxtaposition I saw at a local car show. The 89’ Mercury Colony Park was more interesting than the Z06 Vette in my opinion…in mint condition too…

This must be why the Taurus always outsold the Sable…
…the Sable was too horny.

ON THE STREET: early 80’s Mercury Capri

Pretty much the essence of rebadging, but in this case, its not a total mess. They made these from 79-86 and I actually think the redesigned front end and tailights (the only thing that separated it from the Ford) looked better than the faces and butts of early 80’s Mustangs.

I knew this crazy fucker who had a spray painted 85 Capri with a 400 and its original 4 speed that barely shifted…it was pretty badass, but not nearly as nice as this example I see in the morning on the way to school.

Whoever walked into the board room at Ford Motor Company and said “I think Mercury needs a Mustang rebadge!” should get a pat on the back for having the sheer nerve to suggest it.

The Panther Platform (1979-2011) is the best thing the Ford Motor Company ever did.

Ford: Crown Victoria, LTD, Country Squire, Police Interceptor

Mercury: Marquis, Grand Marquis, Colony Park, Marauder

Lincoln: Continental, Continental Mark VI, Town Car

Ask a taxi driver, a limo driver or that old guy down the street who’s been driving Grand Marquis’ since 1980.

-A brown 89 Grand Marquis was the first car I was in at over 95mph

- My 93 Towncar (called Teddy) was phenomenal

- I rented a ‘10 Grand Marquis this year and it was great I drove the shit out of it (24mpg)

- One day I promise to own a Crown Vic Interceptor and make myself look like a cop and scare teenagers.

RIP Panther Platform
