Challenge: Find a Merkur or cosworth on google maps

Post by pacwest » Thu Oct 08, 2009 4:14 pm

I "found" a Scorpio and a XR with a RS500 wing here:

Yes, these are my cars but safely said they are not there any more.

Let's see your Euro Ford finds.

I've seen XR's on Google Maps before, but I don't think the owners want me posting the pinpoint locations of their house.
