merc capri GS I saw at work. Never saw it again, dunno who owns it

this crazy race built Volvo 122S Amazon. There’s info on this car out there somewhere, but I can’t find a link and am lazy

a 1979 Continental Mark V Bill Blass edition. This one is in town and I parked next to it at the auto parts store. It’s got one of the best paint schemes for the Mark V with the beautiful two-tone and had a very very good looking interior with the Bill Blass logos integrated into the two tone seats. Final photo is the thermometer, integrated into the drivers side mirror. The gauge rotates to show the current outside temperature.

finally, My other car, my grandfathers 1977 Continental Mark V in metallic dark cordovan with the cordovan and white interior

got the custom floor mats to boot. 8 track plays beautifully (I’ve got a Bluetooth adapter for it). 61,000 original miles.

Definitely some interesting cars there, including some old Detroit iron that you don't see much anymore.

What made you like it so much?
Super safe, interior was very thoughtfully designed regarding button and knob placement, seats were amazingly supportive and comfortable (suede down the middle with leather bolsters on all but the back middle seat which was all leather), you couldn’t find a piece of the car that rattled if you tried even after 240k miles, and the 240hp 5 cyl turbo sounded like a race car. And headlight wipers. Can’t forget those.

Here’s what c&d said about the wagon variant. https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/a32500661/tested-1995-volvo-850-t-5r/#error

I couldn't get a picture of it because I didn't see it until it was almost past me going the other way, but I saw an 80s era Dodge/Chrysler minivan that had been cut right behind the front doors and right in front of the hatchback, then put back together. It was all done very well, looked seamless, perfect paint, etc. Kind of like a giant Smart car, a little bit of a Tonka toy look.

This one is kinda funny. Saw a Porsche 997 GT3 (just so happens to be my favorite car of all time in this very color: Cobalt Blue Metallic) but if you look hard at this picture you'll see my Fiesta in front of the GT3... my friend took the picture. :LOL:

:ROFLMAO: Oh yeah, I took off and he couldn't keep up! In reality, once the road opened up into two lanes he was gone. My buddy, who was driving a B9 Audi S4, was playing around with the guy but I didn't bother. Not that I could anyways.
