The first new car I ever bought was a Mercury, a 1967 Mercury Capri. (pic)
This is not mine, but it's similar.

Mine was a medium metallic blue with a white vinyl roof. It had the V8 engine, automatic trans, and power steering (a first for me!). It was also a Mercury spring special and I paid three thousand dollars for it. I drove it for over 120,000 miles over the next seven years and never had a problem. Nice car.

This Capri was the basis for a somewhat better known version called by Cyclone. It had a much larger V8 and many other accessories. It was priced beyond by buying power.

I owned other Mercurys later!
