Good-bye, Mercury

It’s the end of an era for the Ford Motor Company.

As Detroit hadn’t suffered enough,  here drops yet another bombshell. Ford is eliminating its Mercury brand after over 70 years due to its poor sales in its bottom line. No word on the cost of eliminating the Mercury brand, but production for Mercury cars will stop during the fourth quarter this year. The reason for this action is to help expand the more successful Lincoln brand.
