Mercury Blues

Well, sad news for this post.... Ford has announced that they're killing the 71 year-old Mercury line of cars. Yet another American brand to bite the dust in the last decade. It's a terrible occasion for all the Mercury lovers, which includes myself. I had a Mercury as well and loved it. That makes several car brands we've lost in the last few years, Oldsmobile, Plymouth, Pontiac and now Mercury, not to forget that they also cancelled the popular Saturn and Hummer lines as well. When will this madness stop? Below are just a couple of the Mercury models I have in 1:64 scale. Not shown are a couple of the big Mercury station wagons from the 1970's. Enjoy looking at these cars before they become extinct. Sad, sad day.
