This was a great high school car for my kid. He was able to be the one kid in the school that wasn't driving a compact Asian or an SUV...everyone knew who's car his was. One thing he and I both heard with this car was...'you sure don't see those on the road anymore.' And you don't. Step in, ire it up and drive it away...and people will notice you in this bright red 73 Mercury Cougar.
