The White Whale

1970 Cadillac de Ville white whale

Yeah, I found where Raoul hid it.
Luckily, my credit card was still technically valid.  Now this was a superior machine. Ten grand worth of gimmicks and high-priced special effects. The rear windows leapt up with a touch like frogs in a dynamite pond. The dashboard was full of esoteric lights and dials and meters...  that I would never understand.

Best Frog Ever

Ford RS200 at the Imperial Palace.  Another grail car checked off.

The Final Insult

Ford becomes "Merkur"
Sierra turns into alphabet soup: "XR4Ti"
the worst part - you did WHAT with the spacey two-tier spoiler?  

What to Drive...

When a Thunderbird is just too casual. (like Homecoming at a hotel, not Founder's Day at the frat house)  Or, when you're 18 and trolling the car lots, and it's too close to the end of a slow summer month for the salesman to give a shit who gets a test drive - this ain't no snooty Ferrari dealership after all.  1983 Mercury Cougar
