This was posted to the Brown Car Appreciation Society’s Facebook Page recently, by none other than Grassroots Motorsports author, Nick Pon. Yes, it’s a 70′s Mercury Comet Coupe… Yes, it’s on Chrome Dubs… Yes, those stickers are what you think it is. So is this car all that?

    I regularly see a green Comet lately. It's a color my mother dubbed "Puke Green."

    The point of that is this person missed a major opportunity to make a "Vomit Comet."

      you don't happen to live in Mississippi do you? I too have been recently seeing a green comet with startling regularity.

      • Devin says:

        Nope, I'm further north in Saskatchewan. It's weird that green Comets are suddenly starting to pop up.

        • Stuckinsnow says:

          Here just north of Montréal we have a green Comet driven by an old lady. I don't expect it to become a 'vomit Comet' anytime soon. It's just one of these cars and owners that seem to drive out of a time machine.

  2. $kaycog says:

    That really stinks. Poor Comet.

  3. mdharrell says:

    It clearly says "Da $ hit" which I take as a fair, albeit belated, warning.

  4. Van_Sarockin says:

    The Cleveland Steamer of motorcars.

    BTW< it seems we have a new Corvette amongst us.

    • njhoon says:

      I just saw that. It looks like the off spring of a Camaro and a BRZ. I'm not sure what to make of it. From the side and above it looks great, from head on and straight on in the back not so much.

  5. Andy says:

    Wow this must be even more rare than the Grabber edition.

  6. ptschett says:

    I halfway agree with the label… just needs to lose the 1st two letters, & change the 3rd from $ to S.

  7. I_Borgward says:

    Because a Comet with two wipers isn't good enough… though I suspect the third is intermittent.

  8. BobWellington says:

    You guys need to stop crapping on this thing. It has feelings, too.

  9. racer139 says:

    Why flush so much money on a turd.

  10. C³-Cool Cadillac Cat says:

    Talk about astronomical aspiration!

    Random thoughts:
    Because Toyota sold Cavaliers in Japan under their own badge (I forget what the long end of that stick was. The Vibe?) — of course these were made by GM in their own factories — there's a GM part number for Toyota badges (and I've certainly considered ordering some):

    (and check out that TRD bodykit. That's JDM tyte, yo!)
    Getting to the point, I believe Cygnets are assembled/modified at Gaydon, but I wonder if there's a Toyota part number for Aston Martin badges?

    They see me unrollin', they hatin'

    Instead of cracking wise, I'll say this: The car is indeed a P.O.S. I never liked the Maverick, and I considered it a double insult when the Comet model got lumped in with it while Ford refused to call it a Falcon. So fuck you Ford for watering down your brands; I understand the Maverick was a necessary let down, but why did you have to throw the (Comet) baby out with the bath water?

    The joke in and of itself is a lame joke. Paint a shitbox shit colored and put pictures of shit on it and paint the word shit across the side. Go away.

  14. joedunlap says:

    I understand people that want to express themselves, but this kind of crap is totally unnecessary.

  15. POLAЯ says:

    Poopy Ka(r) Ka(r)!

  16. POLAЯ says:

    I've heard of its first generation, the Vomit Comet….

    …this one must have been the second, or number 2 for short.

  17. HTWHLS says:

    It's like a turd you ride in…

  18. P161911 says:

    The driver prefer's you pronounce his name SheThade.

  19. Mad_Hungarian says:

    This is interesting. I never really thought about what kind of car you should own if you absolutely never, ever want to get laid again the rest of your natural life. Now I know.

    And all of this from a fucktard with shit in his name!
