Designing a car is always more fun when it's more of a challenge. Instead of making statements like that, how about embracing the challenge and designing a Mercury that will appeal to a younger audience?

Some people take the pi$$ out of my MG, calling it an "old mans Rover" and asking where my pipe and slippers are. I'm guessing i'd get the same thing in NA and Canada if I drove a Mercury, so change it Steve, make a trendy Mercury if you can.

Given that Mercury is in need of a totally new image and look, I would think it would be most challenging. I'd add in the stipulation that the designs be as real-world oriented as possible and leave the wild flights of fantasy aside.

What would Mercury's new face look like? That could be the focus no pun intended. The nose could be on any kind of car, but what will the new corporate face be?

come on people didn't we ALREADY do a SAVE MERCURY CONTEST. I'd like to think that we are capable of coming up with some fresh ideas as opposed to re-hashing old contests.

People are free to post whatever ideas they want. That is the point of this thread. Bear in mind that CosworthKid doesn't participate so he may not have realized that there was a Mercury contest previously. He just wanted to offer up an idea and was excited about it so how about cutting him some slack?
