Nobody guessed the American’s wide hips. Let’s see if anybody can figure what Jeff Nelson’s next find is. Yes, it’s small, but distinctive.
This was my gut reaction, too–you beat me to it. A classmate of mine in college had one of these, though I think she pronounced it “Merr-ker” instead of the official “Mare-coor”.
If you’ve listened to enough Jim Rome sports talk over the years, you also know this as his one-time ride and apparently a piece of junk, from the way he describes it.
If this is (based on this and the Interceptor) Distinctive Window Treatments Week, then I’m calling dibs on the inevitable SVX.
+1. Every once in a while you see a clue that you can recognize in an instant……
Yep. It was the big rain gutter that did it for me.
Methinx you are correct Ford Sierra or Merkur but Im late again
You should get points for knowing this rebadge job as the Sierra. 😉
We got the real one
For once it’s a car those of us outside the US stand a chance at recognising (an 83-84 Ford Sierra XR4i… or rebadged variant thereof) and I’m late to the party… ah well. 😀
Well sort of, the only versions we saw here were the Sierra Cosworth RS500s, which don’t have the divided side window!
Darn, as the world’s biggest Sierra fan (or tragic, with Sierras it’s a very fine line), I knew instantly – but too late! As Bryce notes, we got the Sierra XR4i versions here in NZ. Gorgeous black one below is for sale here at the moment too, very tempting…
Thats a sweet ride dont see many that nice and its hard to get these clues at all never mind first.
