What We Saw – Cars

Several highlights in this large batch of cars. The two 1975 Mercury Bobcat Villager Wagons were parked next to each other, a sight we only happened upon because of a detour on our usual route to the grocery. The 1988 Merkur Scorpio, while not within my 25-year range, was a pretty rare find. It was the European version of Mercury. And the 1969 Saab 95 was a great find, buried almost completely beneath an overhanging tree.

  1. Nice! Great to see some of my favorite gems from the neighborhood, particularly that first Bobcat Villager was one of the craziest cars I saw last year.

    Where’d you see that GTV (if you don’t mind me asking)?

  2. Wow, a Citation! I thought surely all of those had gone to the crusher by now.

  3. The GTV was on N Albina at Failing St. It must’ve been someone visiting a friend because I’d never seen it before and haven’t seen it since.

    I saw your post about the Mercury Bobcat. Funny that when you were there the second one wasn’t with it.

  4. Always great excitement over certain cars, i.e. Volvos and Saabs. It’s a family thing…..
