    Noob Here

    I've been wanting one since they were a concept in '01 and now I'm a new owner of a 2004 Merc Marauder. It's a DTR 300A with all the bells and whistles. I've had it for a week now and still can't wipe the silly grin from my face.

    Welcome aboard. I'm afraid the grin is permanent Mines still there every time I drive my 04 DTR.

    Thumbs up Sweet

    Hapiness lies within... A Mercury Marauder! Congratulations and welcome to the "club". Be careful on this site though - it's too easy to catch the "mod" bug...

    Welcome aboard. Judging by your name, you must be a "Steeler fan". Are you from Pittsburgh, too?
    (#6178 in black per FPIC)
    Call 1-800-FORD-788 and press "1". Have the last 6 of your VIN handy. You will get the numbers for FREE. You'll pay $$$ for the certificate.

    MM traded in 8/9/13 @ 128909 miles. It was fun for almost 8 years. I met airmercpun on 1/17/14. He was the new owner of my former ride. -Now gone.

    Update: back in the game with a late build 03 GMGS with some MM add ons like Escape audiophile radio w/Sirius sat radio, rear sway bar, catback exhaust, and header panel.

    Rest In Peace:

    See my garage file for part numbers and whatnot.

    IMHO, this site- the members that I chat with- and the ones that I now Hang with- are like my 2nd family. There is such an ongoing welcome feeling here that even members who don't or no longer own the MM can feel.

    My guess would be in the drivers seat, with a big goofy grin on his face, making "VROOOM! VROOOOOOM!" noises

    And welcome aboard!

    I've had mine for 2 months and still can't stop grinning and peeking in the garage every once in a while ... okay ... a couple of times a day!

    Welcome aboard fellow union brother. By the way, that smile is permanant. At first people began to talk, then figured out the connection. My smile kept going on and on and on and on. By the way did you transfer from another plant?

    Cool. My plant has made parts for both Wixom and Mich truck. Wise choice going back to Mich truck. I heard rumors of Wixom closing.

    Today I did enjoy the ride. Haven't really had the chance to take along trip till today. Rode up to Frankenmuth(about an hour and a half away) to the Snowfest 2005. I must say what an impressive drive. She rode very smooth, at least for Mich roads, so smooth I almost fell asleep. Power was there when needed, which for some reason seemed often as others wanted me to "open up", but I controlled it somewhat. I must say everyday I drive this car I'm impressed more and more. Too bad Ford failed to market it more or give it more umph. But I see otheres have taken care of that. I'm glad I got one. I can see this silly grin isn't going away any time soon.
