Is very rare 1969 Mercury marauder, Is all original including factory Fender skirts and factory wheels. This is a Las Vegas car. No rust solid body. I own the car since 1977. Is haven't driven it for 20 years. Is this car needs a total restoration.
Price is down to $2500 on this one! If I wanted a project I'd go for this.

It is really amazing how the Europeans have developed such an interest in the big Detroit cars of the 50s through the 80s. The Scandinavians really love these old boats, there appears to be a whole subculture around them over there. Here's me, driving my '63 Riviera on Riviera Drive in Tampa.

Ahhh yes....Gozo is such a beautiful Island! I visited Gozo, Comino and of course Malta a few years ago and noticed a weird but cool car scene. Mostly riced up imports with lots of stickers with the odd classic here and there. The Cadillacs are so cool from that era and I'm really digging the Riviera too. So much artistic flare when designing both vehicles!

Brought my big rowboat to a cruise tonight & saw a rarely seen Poncho rowboat, 1966 Grand Prix. Outstanding, mint condition:thumbsup:

As MUCH as I liked Chryslers back then, the '65-'66 Pontiacs made them look "conservative" in comparison. DeLorean was the first to use rear sway bars on Pontiacs, back then, so they would go around corners reasonably well, too. Add some Monroe Super 500 HD shocks and they were near-perfect, as I recall. BUT, I still iked Chryslers and their torsion bar/leat spring suspensions with HD shocks, no matter what.
