Ford Scorpio Files....

What i find interesting is the "epiphany". It is that engineers and designers were not held back by the technology of their time.
For example... pay particular attention of the test track where they collect data with the new model with an older Granada connected with an embillcal cable.

Also the crash testing.

In many ways I feel the Scorpio was well over designed.

My testament is that my daily driver is over 30 years old.
