This vehicle is a true untouched survivor car. Purchased in the summer of 2011 from the original owner who had special ordered the car new from Castrucci Mercury in Cincinnati, OH in April 1978. Most of the mileage was accumulated driving to and from Florida and Ohio. The car has never been in snow, never been in an accident, never been smoked in and has been garaged it's entire life. The car is well equipped with full power (Steering, brakes, cruise, widows, seats, door locks, antenna) and everything works even the factory clock and rear window heater! Powered by Mercury's largest engine a 460 C.I. V8. The car has the original full vinyl top and the original silver paint shines like new. The interior is a dark red leather in perfect condition with no wear, tears or cracks anywhere. The rear seat was only used a few times, and the cigar/cig lighters still work! Original spare tire is still in the trunk with the factory markings and has never been taken out of its mount. The car also has the working original AM/FM stereo. The car was rustproofed by Mercury before it was delivered. Other than regular maintenance the only things that have been replaced are the tires and battery (approx 3 years ago) and the A/C was converted to 134A (still have original A/C compressor too). Also have the original books/manuals, factory build sheet, warranty card etc...This car is ready to go and can be driven anywhere. It has had excellent care and maintenance and I have tried to describe the condition to the best of my ability. As one would expect of a completely original 34 year old car there are some nicks and scratches from being driven over the years but the car is truly in amazing condition. The vehicle is being sold as-is with no warranty of any kind and I encourage any interested parties to ask questions and inspect the vehicle. Thank you for your interest. Have more photos if interested please email.
This car is amazing. It is so big and fun to drive, it literally feels like riding on a cloud down the street.
Dont hesitate to email with any questions.
The car is in Traverse City, Michigan at this time.

Bugatti Veyron kit car - Click above for high-res image gallery

If you've got a pulse in your wrist and a snapping brain cell in your head, chances are you wouldn't mind parking a Bugatti Veyron in your garage. But for most mere mortals, scrounging up the cash for a physics-bending piece of 16-cylinder glory would require all sorts of unpalatable tasks. Fortunately for those who want to look the part without having to participate in human trafficking, the kit car universe has stepped in to save the day. All you need is a 1999-2002 Mercury Cougar, a boat load of fiberglass and a little patience.
Oh, and $89,000.
Never underestimate what you'll see on eBay Motors. Take this unique creation, for example. Near as we can tell, it's the same 2002 Mercury Marauder that was modified into a two-door convertible by Ford for the 2002 Chicago Auto Show. According to the seller, this car still boasts its Eaton supercharger bolted to a 4.6-liter V8 engine, and at the time of its debut, the engine was rated at a lofty 335 horsepower. We have a hard time believing that the extra ponies would do much to offset the weight of the additional frame stiffeners and top mechanism on the car, however.

The vehicle is currently offered for sale by a dealer in Lansdale, Pennsylvania, though the listing is mum on how the convertible managed to make its way from Ford's Windy City show stand into the seller's inventory. If you like what you see, the machine can be yours for the princely sum of $75,000 or best offer. Head over to eBay Motors to take a gander at the listing.
Ford has announced through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that it is recalling nearly 3,000 examples of its Five Hundred and Mercury Montego (pictured) sedans from the 2007 model year.
The action, which affects 2,945 vehicles, is due to potentially defective welds between the filler neck and the fuel tank, a condition that could result in a fuel leak or the smell of gasoline reaching the occupants. In the worst-case scenario, a leak could cause a fire. Cars with the affected fuel tank problem could see an illuminated dashboard warning light as a result of the evaporative emissions leak being detected.
Ford will inspect and replace the fuel tank at no cost to owners (those who have already had the procedure done at-cost can apply for reimbursement), and the Dearborn automaker will begin notifying Five Hundred and Montego owners beginning August 15. Check out the official NHTSA press release after the jump for further details.
