1988 Mercury Tracer

parked, but not unoccupied
can’t see the burn marks from here

Where I saw one: Getting on the 51 today.

Nostalgia Value: 5/10

Baseline: 0 – I never owned one.

+1 for being a Ford-badged Mazda. Way better than being a Ford-badged Kia. +1 because I almost bought one, after my Festiva suffered it’s critical ass implosion, +1 for orange dash lights, +1 for not burning to the ground the night I set one on fire, +1 because Dribble crashed hers under a semi, mooting the fact that I torched a brand new car while hammered on gasoline/everclear cocktails.

I nearly bought one, then the future Mrs. talked me into a Suzuki Swift instead.  What the FUCK was i thinking.  (Besides “indulge the GF and get laid”)?
