    Personifying a wagon :lolup: Good one.
    What is this? It looks like a poor copy of a 2001 Mondeo

    I own #10, a 1985 300TD. What I would love to find is a 1965 Dodge wagon, white with the blue interior and 426 wedge under the hood like the one my father had, damn that beast could haul ass.

    I must have missed out on when the '91-'96 B-Body wagons got the 300hp LT1 engine. Must be pretty rare.

    I'll take any year '86-'07 Taurus/Sable wagon to drive.

    Ivy, that's a late '90s Mercury Sable. My brother had a loaded '93 Sable, but he couldn't make his obligations and filed bankruptcy before the laws were changed; since the creditor never had a representative show up in court on his day, he could've forced them to surrender the title, or shown the state the court paperwork and petitioned the state to vacate that title and issue another one, but no, he couldn't be bothered. Tried to pawn it off onto me, and I could not do a damned thing with it because he was the only one who legally could.

    Before I was born, since Mom and Dad had four kids, Dad traded in his '54 Merc for a '56 Country Sedan 2-door wagon. By the time I was 2 and we were leaving Pennsylvania for Portland, OR, Dad had given the car to a high-school-age neighbor who was taking Ag Tech in school, as the car was too rusted to pass inspection, and Dad figured the boy could practice repairs on the car. I just wish that Dad had had it shipped to Portland so we'd have it here, as that time (1968) there was no inspection from out-of-state for registration.
