CC Outtake: The Forecast Calls For Snow on the Sierra


With the recent record low temperatures in parts of Australia and New Zealand, it seems only fitting to dig out pictures of an arctic white Merkur covered in snow on a cold winter day.

Even from a block away, this XR4Ti stuck out like a pearl in a bucket of rubies.  It is quite roadworthy, although the only action it appears to be getting is from some animal walking on the bonnet.  Perhaps the owner of this Merkur knows how rare it is becoming.  Why do I say that?


It appears he has been driving his Ford Bronco instead.
