    Hi everyone. I'm a new member from Big Lake MN. I have been slowly bringing my 1963 Mercury Meteor back to life over the last year. I got the car in 1996 when I was 16 years old. I drove it through high school then it got stored in my parents shed. Last spring I decided to get it out and start getting back on the road.

    So far I've mostly just cleaned up mouse damage from being stored for so long, new carpet. powder coated some parts in the engine bay, and some minor mechanical repairs. My future plans are to reupholster the seats, Air suspension and eventually repaint the car.

    I'm looking forward to learning a lot from the members on the board.

    My daughter and me at the first car show we went to after getting the car out of storage. I'll probly get crap for the billet wheels on here, but they're getting me buy till I can get my stock steelies re done.

    The pictures are from last summer. It's safely tucked away waiting for all the snow to melt.
