I would NOT have my car parked so close to those items you have stored up on the side wall cross beam!! Unless you have them secured with cables, even though, too close for comfort.


BEAUTIFUL CARS!!!!!

Black cars have so much class, hard to keep clean but it really shows when you do. Nice car.

Was very happy to see that you got the convertible at the Mecum auction. Watched it on my tablet at work and was glad you posted that you had purchased it. You will always think of your Grandfather every time you take her out. He did great work on it and it will be something your whole family can enjoy for years to come.

Glad you were able to get your Granddad's car back. Happier to see that you didn't have to fight another bidder to get it (The buy of the century for that car by the way)!!! Enjoy as it is a fine example of a 41 Mercury!!!
