Well, I never owned these cars, but my dad DID.
His first car was a 1965 Mercury Comet Caliente. He mentioned it had a special 289...a gold painted one...and went like, well, a comet. He got rearended in it, which makes him rearend the car in front of him. Totaled.
The car after that one was a '72 Mercury Cyclone GT that he bought new. 429 CJ I think, red w/black vinyl top. He rarely drove it, as mom usually won out on driver placement
When she started getting tickets and being pulled over "for no apparant reason", she talked dad into getting rid of it...and got....the brand-new Mercury Grenada
To this day, dad never listens to mom. Even when she is right
