Performance Ford's Cover car

Post by fastmaul »

For those that aren't on MerkurSport.com I thought I'd share the awesome news of the Awesome car on the cover.

We've made the big time boys and girls!!! We hope we've made the Merkur owners proud!! Taryn is over the moon to say the least.

Oh, we are also going to try get a group buy for the mag (if not available in your area).

Check it out... 8)

Oh, It also comes with a Poster!

Wow, that in black is what i'd like my car to be one day. Tell me about that body kit....the nose/grill/arches/side skirts, what are they and can i get them without having to sell a kidney?

You will have to sell much more than a kidney as those are all genuine Cosworth bits!!

It really surprises me that no body kit company has picked up on this and started making reproduction pieces. Sure the Merkurs are obscure but there's still some demand for them.

I may have to buy the magazine just for that poster. Inspiration to say the least.

Congrats!

actually there are a few places that sell the fibre glass repro parts.

and the bumper and wings are genuine rs500 so you might as well triple the price for them.

The "angry eyes" grill just completes that entire front end. Put a regular Cossie grill on there and it would make the car so innocent. I just looks so damn good.

Anybody know of a shop in NorCal (Sacramento or Bay Area) that carries Performance Ford, or where to order a copy? Tried a few places I know and came up empty.

I can't find the magazine around here either. I may resort to eBay. I've tried Barnes and Noble, Borders, Wal Mart, Autozone, Advance Auto and other places that have a decent magazine selection with nothing.
