Mercury To Meet Oldsmobile at Showroom in the Sky

      Well, it is official. Ford Motor Company announced today that the Mercury brand will be phased out by the end of the 4th quarter this year. While we hate to see the brand go, none of us here in the AT garage could say that we didn’t see this coming. Ford has been limping the brand along on a life support of ancient Grand Marquis sedans and lightly re-trimmed Blue Oval cars for quite a while. Still, the news brings a tear to the eye. The bright side to this song of sorrow is that Fo Mo Co will be refocusing their efforts on Lincoln and promise seven new or heavily refreshed models will be brought to the lineup over the next four years. My vote is for a genuine CTS combatant and the dropping of the silly MK-whatchit nomenclature. But I digress. Our hearts are heavy tonight over the news that Mercury will soon be joining the Saturn and Pontiac brands at that showroom in the sky. Click through for a gallery of historical pics we dug up and remember the good times with us.
