This 1978 Mercury Bobcat is owned by Billy O’Hara of Binghamton, N.Y. (originally of Glen Lyon, Pa.).
“I read The Weekender online every week to keep up with happenings in NEPA and finally decided to send in my Mercury Bobcat,” O’Hara said. “People who know me know that I like to collect rare or odd things. I think the Mercury Bobcat was an odd idea – an upscale Pinto? Why would anyone have wanted to buy this?
“It clearly was one of the Ford Motor Company’s worst ideas, which is why I love it.”
