Love the Merkur, used to have an 85 with the 2 big wings on the back.
Great car! About the only thing I was able to afford to do was to get
the Euro front with the big grill

It definitely looks the business with all the RS500 Sierra trim installed. Hope to tow it to my
new workshop next year and get it running!

These were great cars. I don't see many on the road anywhere.
