[Cortina-list] Oh well...

It was somehow pointed out to me that this was one of the annual
half-price weekends at the Pick-n-pull chain, and until today I had
neither particular interest nor uncommitted time to go walk the place.
The spouse and daughter went off to a movie late this AM, and a check of
the Newark inventory turned up a Mk2 Capri - an extra set of struts and
hubs at the right price would be worth having for my experiments, so I
rather lost interest in cleaning up the office and threw the tools in
Indeed there was a '75 Capri, a V6 stick, fairly intact except for the
interior, and in 45 min or so I had the struts out.
Walking back toward the front I spotted a rounded gray shape and
detoured over there. A Merkur Scorpio. Quite complete. Type 9 manual
transmission still there. Suspension and brakes intact.
Alas, I had neither the tools nor the time to spend rooting around under
the car to drop the gearbox. It'd have been $75 today, tomorrow it's
back to $150.
