Spied on the Street: Fight the Power

1986 Mercury Cougar

Not to be a jerk, but weren't the 60s over by 1986? Were the Black Panthers still a thing? Have they re-become a thing in the intervening 26 (yikes) years and we just missed the memo?  I only ask because just look at this thing.  It started out looking like this:
1985 Mercury Cougar
(an 83, dark blue with red velour inside and TRX would be better.) 
Then, the spray cans attacked...
Black wheels.  Black mirrors.  Black window trim.  Black rubstrips.  Black front signals.  Black grill. Black headlight surround.  All to make this Cougar into a panther, I guess.

You missed the door lock

Some turn signal/running lights are more equal than others.

We can see your stinking badge.  Apparently you needed it.

Black "For Sale" lettering would be funnier

You do know the man can totally see furtive movements through uuntinted wiondows, right?

Ford threw in the tinted tails for free.  You're welcome.
