As a family we have been buying Mercury's since 1949. That pattern will apparently come to an end this year as will our ability to purchase a body on frame sedan from the ignominiously shuttered Mercury line. Since the Mercury Grand Marquis was refined to near perfection could Ford at least consider selling the entire platform to some other concern who may be interested in at least continuing it for those few among us who appreciate the attributes of a robust and easy to repair automotive design. A sale of this nature shouldn't make much difference to Ford since sales of the the Panther platform as of late did not meet their expectations. A niche market for this model shouldn't take much away ftom Fprd's current market share. If this line is allowed to totally expire I think it will mark a historical first, the end of body on frame sedan autos manufactured in North America. How sad that we aren't allowed at least one traditional automobile model to choose from.
