    Merkur Scorpio

    Drivibng down a backroad,after trying to find a 240Z that
    I heard was for sale,spotted a forlorn Scorpio sitting in someone's
    side yard.
    I restrained myself,& kept driving on.....
    Never do anything you
    wouldn't want to explain
    to the paramedics.

    TOC, I am guessing you are thinking of the Sterling, made in England with a Honda, Acura I think, drivetrain. The Merkurs were German Ford.

    I remember Sterling as separate from Merkur. Something about the Merkur....was someone else's drivetrain.
