    nice but the front bumper kills it. maybe switch to something a little less flamboyant.

    Yes. It and the Mercury Mystique were rebadged Mondeos. They replaced the Tempo & Topaz, which hadn't had a major redesign in 10 years, though they were 'reskinned' and interiors updated in '88.

    The Ford Tempo & Mercury Topaz required much reworking to meet impending safety standards. As the platform was aging and performance was subpar, it was cheaper to adapt the Mondeo as a 1995 model for the US market than to totally redesign the Tempo/Topaz.

    friggin rattle can job.. the right sideskirt and right side of the lip paint is bubbling under the clearcoat.

    i'll probably mold the jackpoint covers in the sideskirts next spring so those will get repainted anyway. damn :hs:

    will probably get flamed, but i put eyelids on to see what they look like

    i'm still undecided, might sell them, but they're on for now.

    i kinda thought that too, been getting mixed opinions, i know lots dont like eyelids in general, no matter what car

    i'll probably take them off when i take the lip off in winter and just sell them :dunno:

    slow, 200hp 3100 lbs.

    i've thought about turboing.. but the transmission is weaksauce so i would need to upgrade to an lsd and the money just gets to be too much on a $6000 car

    is it auto or manual?

    and 200hp from a small engine, or a larger, high torque engine?
