@raj_5004: thanks. imho the scorpio looks just too good in black.

@anupmathur: well i wouldnt want to disclose the exact amount on an open forum, but just to give you a ball park, i made a loss of about 35-40% on the value of the vehicle at purchase. this is taking into account, claim charges, depreciation and tax payments(road-tax) which are not covered in ur claim.
my losses were elevated because the vehicle had about 70grand of aftermarket accessories.

I noticed that a few cars have chrome grills. I think it looks very cool , was this the case with all old Scorps? Any way of getting this onto a new one? The walrus tooth looks remarkably ugly but the all chrome grill looks butch.

NIP, how often do you wax your black beauty? And which brand is it? The finish and color are simply remarkable. I wont insult your hard work / maintainance by asking you if you are photoshopping the pictures, but trust me your scorp looks amazing despite the years.

Takumi-san, my scorpio has its share of scratches and small dings. But the pictures seem to hide all of it ALso, I think the black colour in photos hides it. In real, you can make out the scratches. I do not wax the scorpio at all, especially in this season. A couple of times maybe in a year and thats it. It regularly gets its Sunday bath, and in between if it gets dirty too much. Also, I do PS the pics a wee bit to enhance the levels.

far away on the upper right hand side is where I can see your scorpio lurking - blinking its headlamps...
