Always Buying Coins, Currency, and Cool Stuff.

1980 Mercury Capri RS

with one comment

Most people have a love affair with their first car, and I am no exception.  Looking through the classified ads day after day, waiting for the day I was able to take my drivers test, which I did pass the first time!  After looking at MGB’s, Fiat X19’s, and Triumph TR6’s all cars which would have been cool to drive, but a nightmare mechanically, and no fun in the Ohio winters.  I found a 1980 Mercury Capri RS in The News Herald, one test drive and everything came together.  So coming across this TV ad for my first car, was a good find, and gets a “Cool Stuff” stamp.  Keep in mind this car was five years old when I bought it and I certainly couldn’t have pulled off the leisure suit as well.  My car was black with neon green accents and badges, pictured below.
