Default Is it just me?? Or is....

The Mercury Merauder a very annoying car?????????

The drivers of those cars seem to think that they're driving a Dodge Viper and couldn't care less about cutting people off. They're right up there with SUV drivers. UGH!!! Makes me nuts. Nothing worse than an factory tricked-out full sized Ford sedan.

And it seems that the only ones who own them are older men, going through a mid-life crisis and couldn't afford a real sports car!! To make things worse, they just act like they're the coolest thing on the road. DRIVES ME NUTS

OK..done ranting now..

Hmmm...strange. There are a couple of those here, but the driver'* are fairly careful. I love those cars, and the driver'* I've seen are very courteous. Area specific, I suppose.

I don't doubt that there are all kinds of driver'* in those cars.

I haven't seen any around here.... but I do kinda like the car.... it'* got a good stance to it, and 300hp is always good in a 4dr.

I really like that car! I was watching like Horsepower TV or something like that a few months ago, and this guy invested around 700$ for his and added a lot of more HP and Torque. It was so sweet!

Yea, except they have four doors, no convertible, a lot bigger and heavier, made by Mercury and is a family sedan. But besides that...

Man, I keep seeing a Crown Vic near where I work that must have some serious work done on it. The engine note is sweet and OMFG, that thing is just hellishly fast.
It'* a mid-90'* CV, and I'm pretty sure he has a SC on it, along with whatever else he'* done to it. WAG, I'd say he'* putting out 400hp, at least...
Rogue you're up that way, you ever see it?
***EDIT:Thing is dark blue, like a navy blue, almost...***
