This is the 1st generation Mercury Topaz, sold from 1984 to 1987. It was of course a Ford Tempo under the skin, as Ford and Mercury were sister brands and jointly developed several cars during the '80s and '90s; their predecessors, the Ford Fairmont and Mercury Zephyr were also twins, as were their successors, the Ford Contour and Mercury Mystique. The Topaz rode on the FWD Ford CE14 platform that also underpinned the last two European Ford Escort generations before the launch of the Focus. The Topaz was powered by the all-iron Ford HSC ("high swirl combustion") 2301 cc inline 4-cylinder engine with 67 kW (90 hp) and 169 N.m (125 lbf.ft). There was also an HSO ("high specific output") version of the engine with 75 kW (101 hp).

The smallest #citroen of a past era meets it’s biggest #periodcorrect #relative at Breda’s best specialist, just before leaving for #portzeebrugge. Picture was taken a few weeks back, I’m posting it just to #commemorate the fact it has finally been released from customs/shipping authorities NY and has reached it’s Connecticut destination!

#rentalcarreviews fuel wasn't full, TPMS alerted a half inflated tire, and interior smelled like weed. To compound the awful @gobudget customer experience, the #jeeprenegade is the best worst car I've ever driven. #fiatchrysler #badgeengineering #bluetoothpairingisdangerous

Another victim of being beside the seaside / these Wolseley were prone to rust for the day they were made - this one is officially dead ! #westgateonsea #wolseley #badgeengineering #rustinpeace #seasalt #cargraveyard
A 1996 Acura SLX. I tried to show all of the exterior areas of the car where the Acura name or logo were displayed, but I wish I had thought to check to see if the word 'Isuzu' appeared anywhere on the door glass. I like that the owner here apparently thinks highly enough of his 20 year old Isuzu-Acura to fold in the sideview mirrors. Overall, the vehicle was in pretty good shape. That red and gold color combo though... yikes. Car color tastes have really changed since the '90s.

You know it's usually a good time when you get a #jppost package from #japan with #carparts lol #jdm #toyota #bb #oem #steeringwheel with factory airbag for driver comfort and to give the #scion #xb more of the JDM/Toyota appearance treatment. #badgeengineering #sciontotoyota #secondclasscar #toaster #boxybox #bluebox #boxrox
This has to be the most globetrotting #citroenlna in the world. After years of usage in France it ended up in the #benelux and the #streetsofbreda two weeks ago and it will hit the shores of #newyork today! That “A” in it’s name is for “Athlétique”. As it had the more powerful #flattwin, putting out a #whopping 36hp! And those #rallystripes are actually painted on 👊

the Chrysler TC (labeled "Chrysler TC by Maserati") was an attempt to raise the profile of the brand, taking advantage of an investment Chrysler made in Maserati.
.
in fact, the TC was mostly cobbled together from pieces of existing cars, bringing little to the table that couldn't be had in a LeBaron for much cheaper. it did not sell well.
.
someone has had fun with the hood ornament on this one. .

5 of 10 #CarBrochureRealCarsTopTen Aston Martin Cygnet. I love the Smart ForTwo...but if only you could have more seats. Well Toyota managed this with their iQ. Aston Martin then did a "Radford Mini" on it to turn it into the Cygnet. No V8, but the quality of that interior. The price tag I think is what really did for it. So wrong, yet so right. It had to be on my list. #astonmartincygnet #futureclassic #badgeengineering #astonmartin #classicastonmartin #toyotaiq #cars #carporn #carspotter #carspotting #drivetastefully #petrolicious #carlover #sportscars #luxurycars #luxuryliving #luciensmith #brochureshot #cargasm #cargram #exoticcars #carinstagram #supermini
