SORC 2012 1973 Mercury Montego GT

This is something of a tribute video to Chris Bischof's video that got me really excited about this race way back in 2003. My average on the northbound leg was 90.004 mph, which was good enough for second place in the class, but my average of 89.722 on the return leg resulted in a 9th place finish.

1973 Mercury Montego MX
I've owned this Montego since late 2012. Sold it this weeks. It's been a SUPER car. Not too many in this good of condition. I did all the paint and bodywork. Paint color is 2012 Toyota/Lexus Sunset Bronze Pearl (Mica). $240 a quart. Super looking color out in the sun. Don't know why I left my Montego GT bagged up for this video, but if you'd like to see the 521 after break-in you can see it here
