Was on the way home when I saw this UFO-like creature at the lights.

SUPER wide gaurds, and looked clean as hell.

INFORM ME, PEOPLE!

Merkur I think. Let me do some searching, I have only ever seen one in person, much less the internet.

I can't find anything solid, involving pictures or anything, but it is a Ford brand, so I wouldn't be surprised to see it down there.

Hmm interesting. I looked up this 'Merkur' and the none of the models look like it. They're close though.

It will remain a mystery I suppose :hehe:

Can you or anyone else by any chance re-host that on this site in the gallery? I want to see this UFO, you've all piqued my interest.

It does look like a 90 fox body mustang with a shitty body kit and ricer tail lights.

Oh god.... i don't even know how you guys identified that to be a Merkur...

I almost think it looks like a butchered FC RX7. But the tails don't quite make sense there.
