1977 Mercury CometReview
Fun Car, Lots Of Work To Keep Going — Bought as a builder for my son and I to play with. He drove it to school for a few years and we spent many hours under the hood. Goes like a scalded dog as long as there are no curves in the road and God be with you in a sudden stop situation. Highway mileage ok but in town really sucks. Oh well, still a hoot to drive.
Pros: FUN, not bad looking, unique ACCELERATION
Cons: stopping, turning, filling gas tank
