Special Canadian – 1966 Mercury M100

October 30, 2015

Even though this site has a primary focus on cars, it’s interesting to take an occasional look at other related vehicles that either enable the hobby or capture some of the same elements we like so much about affordable classics. With pickup trucks it’s a little of both – they can help haul stuff around, and they have an elemental simplicity and purity of focus since they were built mainly with utility in mind. Of course, the other focus of this site is the oddball, and nothing scratches that itch like an otherwise ordinary truck that’s been rebranded for sale in another market. With that, check out this 1966 Mercury M100 for sale for $3000 in Calgary, AB.

Fete du Canada – 1975 Bricklin SV-1

July 1, 2015

There’s nothing to make a Canadian’s heart swell with pride like talking about the home automotive industry. Recent cars include the full-size Ford Crown Victoria, but along with Volvos and various American cars (including some Canada-specific brands and models like the Acadian), there was nothing that was exclusively Canadian in the way this car was. That’s right, it’s the unsuccessful attempt at a sports car known as the Bricklin SV-1, a sort of safety car for people with a vague idea of fun that includes gullwing doors, a 351 Ford with C6 automatic, and AMC Hornet suspension and brakes. Check out this 1975 Bricklin SV-1 for sale for $2750 in Fort Collins, TX.
