This is a sweet cat, fully optioned and with a dark brown leather interior it had everything I wanted.

Here is another one I should have kept, but I did not realize how nice it was before it was too late and I had promised someone that I would sell it. It was a totally original California car with a mint interior.
This is one of the cars that barely put its tires on my ground before it went away again.

1949 Merury 8 coupe.

This is probably the car I should never have bought. It looked so nice in picures, but it sure had some surprises waiting for me.
I did not want to spend all the time and money restoring it to the condition I like, so I decided to take a huge loss and let her go to someone else with more interest in these old cruisers than I have.

1966 Mercury Park Lane 2d ht 428 4V C6

Another one owner car that I restored and sold. I never drove it much, but I remember it was very fast. It had a very special history, sold new in Ancorage, Alaska and was kept by the same owner until she died and I bought it. The car was white with a white vinyl top and before I restored it. It had a very unique and the rare factory maroon leather interior. I sold it just because someone wanted it more than me and had the money to pay for it.
Here are some of the classic cars I have owned in the past. Some I had for years, some were barely parked outside my home.
