Yep, I saw the Cutty being driven away, having its new owner try to flip it for a $6K profit, and so on. The only thing I'm not sure on is if the guy did actually sell it for that much.
And a bad LIM - Seems like you're all set for a writeup! My mom has a 2006 Mercury Milan, pretty similar to the Fusion, and I agree that it feels like it'* a more solid car than the Alero. The SLO is still doing just fine, though it'* a bigger, older car and so naturally, it has more flexing as I drive over rough terrain. Was the Ford wrecked before the picture was taken?
