Need Help Towing Scorpio in PA (Allentown to Lake Sheridan)

As some of you know I am in the process of purchasing a black 89 Scorpio to provide the body for our T5. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find anyone to help tow it from where it sits in Allentown, PA, back to my brother-in-law's place in Lake Shgeridan, PA (north of Scranton), where the body s...

Seriously! I have never heard about Silent Hill being based on Centralia. There are indications that it is based on Centralia. Regardless, I'm fine with that. It's everything else about his auction that is crap. There are no plans to level the town in 2010. And all that nonsense about a COA and "on...

I have to chime in here. Russ has always been great to me and been a huge help in keeping my Scorpio, as well as countless other Merkurs, on the road. He's provides me with high-quality parts and some great advice. Russ, if you're reading this, I really appreciate you and your business, and I know t...

Honestly, those side skirts aren't too bad. The rest? Well, I prefer my Scorpio not look like Darth Vader's rejected prototype helmet.

This news saddens me deeply. Norm was a great guy and a wonderful friend. My prayers go out to his family. May his spirit live on among all of us in the Merkur community.

Need For Speed:Pro Street has a Sierra Cosworth that you can unlock as well. Quite well done imho, but I don't own a Cossie, so I can't say for sure. I just bought this and noticed the Escort Cosworth in the intro video, so I started wondering if a Sierra would also make an appearance. Glad to hear...

Here's a satellite image of Centralia. Note the lack of vegetation in and around the town. http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&ie=UTF8&g=centralia,+pa&layer=x&ll=40.803594,-76.34232&spn=0.00856,0.019312&t=h&z=16 And check out this image of now-abandoned Route 61. http://mw2.google.com/mw-...

I'm only about an hour and a half away from Centralia, so I'd be interested in this. Only thing is I believe many of the roads through Centralia are closed, and most are disintegrating due to lack of repairs. In fact, I'm not entirely sure you can even drive into the "town" anymore. I know for a fac...

Almost forgot...

The Sierra Cosworth does make an appearance in the latest edition of Ford Racing for PS2 (I think it's the third one).
