1969 Mercury Cyclone CJ: An American Pastime. Brought to you by Jaeger-LeCoultre
In this week’s Made to Drive episode we recall less wintry weather in the heartland of the country as we join Cy Schmidt for a late afternoon cruise along the backroads of Ohio in his 1969 Mercury Cyclone CJ. The last two letters designate the V8 under hood as a special one, and at this moment we can’t think of many verbal twosomes possessing as many promises of giddy smoking-tire fun as the words “Cobra Jet”—and the base car, the Cyclone, was named after a fence-ripping, cow-tossing fit of natural aggression to begin with.
