Wow. I just did a random search for Merkur Scorpio on the internet, walking to take a ride down memory lane...If only there had been a site like this 15 years ago!! My parents bought a 1988 Merkur Scorpio in January of 1989... It was the lighter brown exterior with tan leather interior. Had every option available. What a car! I remember that we thought it was just the best car ever made, and we kept it up until September of 2003, when dad got a Lincoln LS, which feels surprisingly similar...I learned to drive in the Scorpio, and i really enjoyed the way it handled...I'd say it was our favorite car ever, and if it weren't getting so old and well worn, we wouldn't have gotten rid of it. He sold it to the teenage daughter of a co-worker. I hope she's enjoying it like we did. I think it kind of broke his heart to see it go...But I am so glad to see that there is a community out there that appreciates how great these cars were. Keep it up guys!
