You guys have to got to see the jewel we picked up from the wrecking yard. Shes about 4000 pounds, and her name is Merna. Last week a couple of my firends set out to find the UGLIEST card at the junkyard to bag until she blows for the weekend. Much to their joy, they found a lime green, fully loaded (air, tilt, cruise, powerseats, power everythig else)351 powered Merc COugar. With turbine rims to boot. So for $150, taxes in, they drove off the lot and took it back to they house to do some custom bodywork. After several cans of spraypaint, Merna looked meaner than ever. The top half is now-Audi TT metallic silver, the bottom still life green, the hood flat black with a big blazing skull, the doors bright red with ".08" (inside Canadian joke), the roof and sidewalls of the tires flourescent Orange, the rims bright gold, and the final touch, a pink butt painted on the trunk of the car with "kiss my A$$".
This thing is an absolute blast to tear around in, the 351 still has a lot of balls to it, and you can easily smoke Civics and the like. Not only that, but Merna excels at off roading. We managed to launch her off a five foot high, 45 degree incline at 40 kph and she didn't seem to suffer any apparent damage. We need to look at the plugwire however, as when we ripping through some farmers field last night flames started to pour out of the hood, several bottles of beer later, we had the fire out, but a couple of wires were toasted. Anyways, we have some pics of the car that I'll post. Next weeks plans include converting Merna to a targa top. Should look too sweet.
