    Still Crazy about The Mercury

    Got full working brakes on the 52 Merc now so its a little safer driving. We took it out for a high speed run recently and got some good video from front and rear thanks to an assistant camera man..

    That old Merc has been here almost as long as I have. My dad bought it in the fall of 1959 so it has some sentimental value. Great to have it running again.

    Brakes would be advisable before getting it up to road speed. I know you posted the video of getting it running within the past couple of years. How long was it in storage before you got the chance to start making it road worthy again?
    No matter where you go.......There you are.
