Re: 1988 Merkur Scorpio -- SOLD!

I’m going to go look at this horrible idea tomorrow…

I’m the only one on my team even remotely interested in doing this…

So,… I’ve got an idea that might make it a little more palatable to others I share life with…

What if’n I wuz to git it, do a little sumthin’ sumthin’ to it, git it registered & insured all legal like, & start another one of them “XXX it Forward” types deals I used to love following on here…?  It’d have to start out as more of a Rally/Judgemobile kinda deal at first, ‘cuz all that safety schtufff takes a buncha money & talent I ain’t got a whole lot of…

As time goes by and others get hooked on it & pitch in, it could start being a real racin’ car…

What say ye, oh like-minded crazies…?

Mare-Koor it Forward!?

If you’re gonna be dumb, you gotta be tough.

I should probably put down the beer and instead work on the XR4Ti that is going to be an XR4BBLC.

Re: 1988 Merkur Scorpio -- SOLD!

I have arrived at an undisclosed location in North Carolina.

I have seen the elusive Merkur animal within its enclosure.

I am waiting for the caretaker of the beast to arrive.

Then I will approach with caution… and some trepidation…

Stay tuned… More to follow… If I survive first contact…

Re: 1988 Merkur Scorpio -- SOLD!

It was great meeting you

I hope to see this thing on the road (and the track) soon

Re: 1988 Merkur Scorpio -- SOLD!

You too!

I guess the cat’s outta the bag then…

I am now the “proud” owner of American automotive history….

What the hell was I thinking!?!?

I think the K&N air filter and Lamborghini red valve covers convinced me it was a race car…
