1984 Mercury Topaz, Blue Max

This picture was taken in my driveway. The white paint on the roof was primer that I was putting on in preparation for repainting the roof. The repainting went well, though the paint didn't match exactly. Of course, the rest of the paint was so old, it would be impossible to tell if the correct paint matched.

Note the Alloy wheels. These were 365mm wheels. Very difficult to find tires in the 365mm size. And when you did find them, they cost anywhere from $100 to $150 per tire! Yikes. The new wheels from the junkyard were great. The tires only cost $30 for those 13inch wheels. Unfortunately by the year 2000, 80 series 13 inch tires were also becoming rare.
