I originally posted this story in the 'Introduce Yourself' section back in 2007. For those who haven't seen it or have forgotten about the project, I thought it was about time for an update with a proper thread on the car.... I'm originally from London in the UK, and have lived in various parts of the world including Australia, USA, Canada, Hong Kong and currently living and working in the French part of Switzerland. I've owned and sold many cars over the years, and one of those was an original black 1950 Mercury, I sold it when I moved to Canada for a year as I had no storage in London. Anyway, fast forward to 2006 and I really fancied another Mercury for a possible road trip across the US.
