I'll throw my hat in the ring!

Car: 1989 Merkur Scorpio
Color: Strato Silver Metallic w/ Jet Black Accents
Interior: Raven Leather
Build Date: 2/1/1989
Mods: Period-Correct-Size 15" Borbet Rims, Jet Black Grille and Wing, Body Color Rocker Panels...and it's one of the few modified Scorps to retain the US-spec headlights!
Story: A great example of a daily-driven Scorpio with subtle mods that retain the spirit of the US-spec Scorpio. Plus it's been a part of the MCA from just about the beginning!

Here are a few pictures:

Yep, all of them! Other than the "elite" cars, we're not going to worry about this too much until April or so. I just wanted a place for people to start showing interest - no harm in doing that now.
