    I'm been putting miles on it but haven't really done anything to it, I'm retrofurbishing a 1955 Spartan Imperial Mansion (43') so I haven't had time to work on it.

    Last year on the 4th of July I drove to Louisville, Ky and bought this Mercury I had been chasing it for several years. I kept it a few months and did some upgrades to it then like all the others I sold it...and immediately regretted it.

    Flash forward to July 4th 2014 exactly one year to the day later I got the car back and didn't even realize the anniversary of the first purchase until yesterday. I think it's meant for me to keep the Merc.

    Wild looking car; its like a '57 Ford from an alternate reality or something. Glad it got back to you.

    As bad as I hated to paint the old girl she really needed it to keep from getting in worse shape.

    She looks good in that satin dress. Reminds me of a Gordon Lightfoot song. Sweet car.
