I believe Mario owned this car for a while. I know it has come up in carlisle conversations before. He may have a lead for you on who he sold it to. I sent him a message and let him know your looking.
Merkur....Its German for Mutt....Mustang, Saab, Volvo, Lincoln, Contour, Cummins... and the list goes on.

Sounds interesting. What type of ice did this thing have? I used to love Sony back before all the xplod stuff. Remember the XM2000R? Fitting amplifier for and XR. At least if it's Japanese stuff, Blaupunkt and MB Quart also makes sense in a car from Germany.
