CC Outtake: 1970 Mercury Montego: The Artist-In-Residence

Eugene’s Whiteaker District is, among other things, an artists’ colony. One can find all sorts of curious and artistic objects sitting in front of colorful old bungalows–including this purple Montego. It hasn’t moved in years, instead becoming a fixture in front of the home of this artist, who obviously is fond of purple.

Who can argue with the artistic merit of the Montego’s fine lines…

and its sculpted nose? Michelangelo–or more likely Salvadore Dali–would approve.
