Sporty Sedan — Another unique American'ish car although actually it was a German car badged as a pseudo-American car. Styling a little obnoxious but a good sporty sedan and it was priced well back in the day. Sold it for same price that I bought it for

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Turbocharger

Cons: Body roll

If You Dont Mond Working On The Car Constantly And You Dont Mind Embarassing Z28s With A "tempo" . — 2.3 liters of turbocharged terror, a ugly German sedan with the heart and soul of a crappy American car. The car runs out of sheer willpower of the driver and not much more. If it wasnt for the nearly indestructible heavy as a v8 engine block the engines would probably explode the first time they were started.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: No one will mistake it for a Mustang

Cons: the list of faults is longer than the list of parts used to build the car.

1985-1989 Merkur XR4Ti was a very good car, sporty, fast, well appointed and yes quirky looks. I loved it, just like the Saab 900 Turbos of the same era. Ford of Europe made a good car but Ford of USA... Read More
