Praise and Poetry: 1985 Mercury Lynx Diesel

This next car has a special listing. It includes a single thumbnail sized photo of the subject car in the waning sunlight, parked in a pedestrian walking zone. But that isn’t the best part. The best part is the description, which starts with the single line of uncaptialized prose; “anybody want to buy a 1985 mercury lynx diesel with 88K original miles.” The statement ends, quite functionally, with a period and NOT a question mark. The rest continues as something you’d expect to see in a poetry book at a second hand book store. Find this 1985 Mercury Lynx Diesel offered for $1500 in Hamburg, PA. Tip from ME.
