Re: Hello All, New User in NW Ohio

Welcome to the forum. You're relatively close to two of our Merkur-specific vendors out there, Merkur Depot and Merkur Midwest. Good luck with the project.

Re: 1987 Merkur Xr4Ti for sale

I don't think you'll have much luck getting Facebook pictures to show up here. You'll probably need to use a different photo hosting site.

So where's the car located?

Two Scorpios, Lake Tahoe area

Another entry in the email files. This one is for two 1989 Scorpios, one blue, one white. One may be more parts material as the seller said he originally planned to make one good one from them, but didn't get around to it and has now changed his mind. There are a few pictures of the blue one. No pri...

Re: Any Turbo Coupe experts in here?

1. I'm going by memory, but I don't believe any of the 7.5 rear Turbo Coupes had rear discs from the factory. Nor did any Turbo Coupes get the 8.8 until the 1987 model year. 2. I believe the Turbo Coupe 8.8 rears did have the quad shocks and a rear anti-sway bar. I don't know about the 7.5 models. M...

1988 XR4Ti, White, MT, Sunroof, cheap - Sidney, Ohio

I have another For Sale listing on behalf of someone who contacted me offline about his 1988 XR4Ti. It's located in Sidney, OH. It's white, with a manual transmission and a sunroof. It hasn't run for at least 3 years. The interior looks like gray leather in pretty good shape, minor wear visible on d...

Aviation legend Bob Hoover dies

This isn't Merkur or even automotive related. Those of you interested in aviation have probably heard of Bob Hoover. For those readers that haven't heard of Bob Hoover, had events been only slightly different, today we'd recognize him as the first man to break the sound barrier instead of his good f...

These aren't Diamond, but Stinger Performance can order CP pistons designed for the Volvo head swap. You'll need to talk to Stinger before ordering. http://www.stinger-performance.com/suspensionparts.html
