Default New car in the garage

I've been like a kid at Christmas, this morning I was so excited I couldn't sleep! Today was the day that reliable carriers delivered the 41 Mercury.

The problem with a car like this is: It's so beautiful that it would be hard to drive in todays traffic. Where would you park it? I worry allot.

I don't blame you, I'd probably be out in the garage with it all night. What a gorgeous car, they had so much class.

Love the 41 Merc. I was looking for a 41 Merc 2 door when I ran across the Ford which I couldn't pass up.

Nice! Looks like it has gone to a good home!

AND I LOVE your '36 Pickup The '35 and '36 Ford pickups are awfully hard to top everyone seems to love them. Nice to see one that looks stock not chopped up and painted clown colors like so many you see today.
