The "Sport Coupe" is a 2 dr. Tempo. I wanted to mock the excessive use of "Sport" after seeing a Caravan "Sport", among about one million other completely non-sporty things labelled "Sport". When I got my Thunderbird Super Coupe the previous owner was into bling and had added "Sport" emblems, which I promptly removed. I should have put them on the Sport Tempo but instead they ended up on Mowmar Cutoffy, my riding mower. Previous T-Bird owner was not amused.

Mowmar- now THERE'S a name! Perhaps someday I will come up with a car name as good as that one.

The Mercury Tracer is known as the T-Racer around these parts... of course the way I drive it, it's anything but a racer; in fact who else would get pulled over by the cops for going too slow?

"ShWing"- need I say more?

"Moon Unit"- is there anything with spacier styling? Just look at that face. Plus I've always liked the name- thank you Frank Zappa for making me smile.
