Back in the 50s my Aunt came to visit and she had a 51 Merc. 4 dr. I was 12 and thought it was pretty cool. Then as I was reading my hot rod mags I discovered that the big deal was custom 49 thru 51 Mercs. Well the years went by and I had a chance to get a 51 Merc. coupe 40 years later. Couple more years went by and Boom. I was over at a guys house and he says " I'm going to sell that red convertible '". Well I've been driving it fir over ten years now. I call it a little boys dream. Thanks for the invite. Hope you enjoyed the story.
