OK, I get it now. Must have missed that one.

Is that what's behind our rear medallion on the Mustang?

Hard to find cars, those Mistresses

Especially if you want one with low miles that hasn't been driven hard and abused

The Automotive Press has been churning out articles just like this for years now. They can't stand that Mercury exists, and that they have been wrong in their predictions.

I'll believe it when I see a Ford Press Release. Until then it's just hot air, again.

Sure, GM is in great shape.

Saturn should have been Oldsmobile.

Where is my **** retro 1969~1970 styled 2005, 2006, 2007, & 2008 COUGAR???

This Cougar should have used the same platform and performance options as the SN197 Mustang with the requisite Mercury creature comforts, like automatic temperature control.

If I could have gotten a 2008 Mercury Cougar Eliminator complete with 500 horsepower 5.4 and six speed manual transmission along with performance suspension, brakes and automatic temperature control, I may well have bought that rather than my GT500.
As late as 2003 they were working on just such a 'retro' Cougar.
Anything like that though was killed by Elena Ford who was in charge of Mercury.
Goes to show having Ford as your last name doesn't mean you know cars or car buyers.
