Don't get me wrong, I love cars. Almost all cars. What I fail to understand is the purpose of this article? Why would anyone want to restore a Topaz or a Tempo? I worked as a car salesperson in that era. As a young person, I gravitated to the mustang and the diesel Ranger. The Tempo, couldn't take a corner, accelerate to save its life, not fuel efficient, brake to save someone else's life, nor attract the opposite sex. It wasn't even fun to drive in any way. Cars like this bankrupt car companies. I fail to recognize the purpose of the article?? When manufactures retire cars, it is usually because there is a significant drop in demand, or the car is a lemon. This is completely true for the Tempo/Topaz twins. Let them rest in peace. please let them rest in peace!!
