How far is CT from PA :?:
You're kidding. Look at a map.

CT is east of PA - you need to go across NY and maybe a little of NJ depending on how you go.

Well I normally have to drive an hour to an hour and a half to work and the same home so 4 hours isn't a big deal. But colin's trip is rather a long one.

What about the Chrysler Pacifica and Hyundai Sonata last year? :lol:

We'll have another Merkur Ranger this year... but it's got a Merkur engine and a Merkur badge, so it should be alright... :lol:

Look at that emblem! :D

Damn you Colin! I thought I was going to have the first Merkur truck! :evil:

But that actually looks like it came from the factory that way! :shock:

Yeah... we had to fix the busted-ass factory grille (from hitting a deer,) so Nick (owner of truck) and I took a trip to the junkyard and got a new header panel and the 93-94 V6 (?) style grille and rattlebombed it... I outfitted it with a Merkur emblem half as a joke, but it seemed to fit the overall feel of the truck, so it stayed. :)
