How many Scorpios are still on the road today?

As I recall they imported a little over 20k.

How many do you think are still on the road today? I'm not counting the ones overseas...

A hundred and twelve?
You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. There's shrimp kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo, pan fried, deep fried, stir fried, pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp in potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich....

Someone had a list of registered Merkurs from 2017. Cars with current registrations and plates -- "on the road" and there were about 100 1988 models and 100 1989 models. I'm sure the list of parked/expired registration/projects/out in a field in W.VA would at least double that number.

Nate Howard probably has that many in his barn.

Did Nate finish the Sierra Cosworth total restoration project? The one Mike used to have?
