I did not scroll down that far but had read that story before, it appears that the car mags are now starting to pay more attention to how terrific Comets and other Mercurys really are. Also like to read the subscribers comments which usually support our marque.

I wish that were my car. The dusty photo in the garage is the closest I'll come.

Great story though.
