    I see them also. What's with the Goobered Mercury? Can we get some details and close-ups of the engine compartment and interior?

    I will get some all around pic up soon
    It takes time for things like pic to load as internet and data is worse then dialup where we are at took 45 min for one pic to upload yesterday but we went into town and 2 others loaded up in seconds....like 5 sec.
    The mercury is actually pretty straight if rodents spared the wiring it might be on the list to start on down the road.

    Little buick is not as bad as I have taken on at least it's all there (glass is even in good shape)

    Very nice. It'll be a project, for sure, but it appears to be complete for the most part, and even the taillights and chrome trim are undamaged. The rear bumper, however, will need some tough love. And I like the interior color, so a matching exterior would be great.

    Its a project but looks like everything is here .
    I have had worse.
    I can see past the rough .

    I have to finish up the 72 chevelle wagon before anything else gets looked at .
    Next in line is my 67 ss chevelle.
    I have had her for 46 years and it's been 19 years since last makeover.
    after that one then we will talk about what's next .

    Got enough small jobs to keep me busy until 2020.

    Glad to see you were able to save it from the crusher. Now we wait impatiently for the restoration project to begin.

    Might be awhile on the 63 buick it has a few ahead of her.
    Working on a 72 chevelle Concours wagon right now hope to be done by September.

    Then I have my 67 ss chevelle to facelift, she got hit at a car show last November, not taking it down all the way, but will clean it up good and paint all over.

    Might paint my 02 pickup and gf yota after that.lol

    Then we will look at the little buick or we also saved a 63 mercury Monterey,
    That one could be a cool car but I dont think its worth much as per internet.
    But we think it's a cool looking car.
