5k: Coolest Tail Lights: 1961 Mercury Comet

The batteries on the Philae space probe only lasted 60 hours on the surface of the comet known as 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko, but I could spend many more hours in a vintage Mercury Comet because they are out of this world.  Find this 1961 Mercury Comet here on craigslist, offered for $4,000 in Phoenix, AZ. Tip from FuelTruck.

The Mercury Comet was a compact sedan that shared a platform with the
Ford Falcon and Mustang, but was equipped with luxury features. This 4-door version is powered by a 144 cubic inch inline-6 that is  equipped with a single barrel carburetor and rated at 85 horsepower.  It is going to be slow, but sweet.
