I guess like my sister says, I'm just like dad. I have a fetish for old cars. At least this one is the right color! I plan to keep it clean and drive it on Sundays.

Is that an 84 or 85? I had an 85 like it that was silver with a dark gray vinyl top. I loved it but Peaches hated it, guess who won :( . I love those old Mercurys.

WHAT a 4door!!! :? :? :? Telling your age Howard!!!
Really, nice ride even if it is a 4dr. All joking aside, great find!!

I don't own any automobile that is not a 4dr, even with just me and Shawn right now.

It needs shocks and a few other things. I'm not sure it drives as nice as the Cadillac. Seems like it has a lot of wind noise. It was built in the day of the 55 mph nationwide speed limit. The Caddy will run 70 mph all day long.
