Yeesh. I know, aesthetics are objective, but I always thought the Scorpio/Granada a fairly handsome car, and then then they did this to it. :puke

and for what they did with the front suspension they deserve some serious spanking.....

Funny fact; doors from 85-94 will fit 95-98 and vice versa.

That makes a Pontiac Aztek look pretty. (Not that I think the mono Aztecs are particularly ugly). Maybe I should have just said AMC Pacer.

Jeeze, I always thought that any Ford that bore the Cosworth badge should be saved but there really is an exception to every rule.

Well, definitely some great parts, like the drivetrain, including the diff. In fact, a Cossie Scorpy Frankensteined with an XR would be badass!

Very cool idea. Although I am curious to know what kind of power potential the 2.9L would have. 205HP seems a little soft when we have boost to play with.

Disclamer: I am a sucker for wild engine swaps.

:dunno Agreed, and as I've read that the Cologne V6 can be modified for more power fairly easily, it would seem that the 24 valves would yield quite a bit over that...
