Spotted in a side yard across from a gas station thus morning. 

I'm stumped.

Looks vaguely familiar, may have been something on the HAMB about it?

Close but the wildfire doesn't have the ugly sidemount spare tire.

Or someone has messed with one.

After digging through my collection of  Classic Motorsports magazines, I found this article called The King of Classic Specials. It has one in the article that is called a 1950 Leo Lyons Mercury Custom. Geoff Hacker may be interested in that car

The snow in the spare tire wart looks like the logo for the Ghostbusters. No, not that one, the E36 M3ty Funimation Ghostbusters.

The headlamp openings look Lincoln or Packard to me, but that's as far as I'm willing to go.

Yes, I was thinking Lincoln too, based on the headlights.

And you can read that article online: Geoff Hacker’s kind of fun? Finding one-of-a-kind, 50-years-missing specials
