Big project this spring


Recommended Posts

Found one out of an '89 Riv. I first looked at an '88 Riv but that wouldn't work as it didn't have the electrical lead on it. The '89 mdid have the lead and is now in my back stock waiting for the next break.

Didn't want to start another post for this. I was sitting in the back end of a Ford dealership using their free internet while waiting for my next appointment [work related not car repair]. It was 5:00 pm when I saw an older mechanic walk up to me.

I told him I was starting on my 11th year and that I bought it from a guy in Florida and use it for my summer driver. He cautioned me to take care of it and get it into storage soon.

One of the clients I met yeterday had just purchased a 1941 Mecury that was used [documented] in the movie "Bugsy". It also is believed to have been owned at one time by Gary Cooper. There are pictures of Gary in a car that matches this one perfectly [black 12 cylinder 3 speed manual transmission with Red leather interior] but records have been lost.

It is a beautiful car. The chrome and leather is perfect the paint almost so. A stunning car.
