1950 Mercury Convertible "Lead Rag"
After nearly ten years of enjoyment, it's time for me to sell my all time favorite car. This is possibly the chance of a lifetime to own a real 1950 Mercury Convertible that has all the cool custom touches of only the best Lead Sleds.

Chopped top convertible with Haartz canvas top and boot cover and yes it works.

Ground effect lights under the car, Dual exhaust with Flame Throwers and 4 link Air Ride suspension by the Bagman.
53 DeSoto grille, 57 Caddie hubcaps and air cleaner

    Kit Cat: Mercury Cougar makes perfect Bugatti Veyron substitute

    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.

    NHTSA closes probes on Jeep Grand Cherokee, Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey

    Wed, 09 Jan 2013 17:59:00 EST

    The Detroit News reports the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has officially closed its investigations into 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 2004-2005 Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey models. The separate probes found no issues that pose safety concerns. NHTSA began investigating certain Grand Cherokee SUVs over complaints that power steering hoses could detach during operation, thereby increasing the risk of a vehicle fire. Of the 24 reports of failure, none alleged smoke or fire in the engine bay, and Chrysler has since modified the power steering cooler assembly to reduce the likelihood of the failure.
    Meanwhile, certain Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey vehicles garnered a government probe after receiving complaints that the models were equipped with faulty scissor jacks. The agency had received six reports of the jacks failing or causing injuries, including one incident that resulted in a fatality. But NHTSA says the jack failure rate is similar to those found in other vehicles. In those six cases, the government agency found the jacks were being used for something other than changing a tire, and investigators could not determine whether the emergency brake was set or the rear tires were properly chocked.

    eBay Find of the Day: Craterface's '49 Mercury convertible from Grease

    Wed, 29 Jan 2014 17:30:00 EST

    Here is your chance to own your very own piece of greased lightning. Well, not the Greased Lighting, it's actually the black, flamed 1949 Mercury convertible that races against John Travolta in the classic 1978 movie Grease, and it's for auction on eBay Motors.
    While it appeared in the film's exciting drag race in a Los Angeles storm drain, the hot rod was reportedly lost until last year, when the seller found it as a shell. He verified that it was the actual car with original builder, Eddie Paul, and sent the car for a complete restoration.
    The auction includes original parts like the exhaust tips used in the movie and bent bumper from when it hit Travolta's car in the scene. The restorer recreated the scorpion stickers on the doors, razor hubcaps and license plate. He also installed a 1949 Mercury 255-cubic-inch (4.2-liter), flathead V8 and three-speed manual transmission with overdrive.
