1961 Mercury Comet For Sale
I've owned this cute little 2-door Mercury Comet for a couple of years now and I've just got to accept the fact that I will not have enough time to finish her. I've already rebuilt the front end and fitted her with correct rims and brand- new tires (if they have 25 miles on them I'd be surprised). Still needs interior and interior refurbishing, but what a solid platform to start with!





1963 Mercury Comet S22
Comet really came of age with this car! If Falcon could have the Futura, Comet could have the S22! I'm amazed at the paint job on this car...it's 10 years old, but looks absolutely new! The owner tells me he has the original tires! What a car!

1965 Mercury Comet 202 Hi Po 289 5sp
Comp's 271-S Nostalgia Cam. Mercury made 90 or so of the Cyclone cars with the Hi Po. A 202 woud've dropped 150 lbs or more. Ford's darling Moostang getting spanked at the dragstrip and on the strip would've been a marketing nightmare for Ford. Recall Mercury was Ford's luxury line, yet was never fully allowed to stretch its performance legs. These cars are LIGHTER by 100+ lbs than the Musk'tang.

Buick - History Documentary (1995)
This video is a wonderfully-done documentary, written and produced by Michael Rose, on the history of Buick as presented in 1995 from the History Channel's archive. Here is Michael's description of the video verbatim: "No one would have believed that the tinkering of a plumber would turn into the foundation of the world's largest corporation. But it did. David Dunbar Buick invented a process to adhere porcelain to tubs and other bathroom fixtures. But the Scottish immigrant dreamed of making a mark out of the bathroom, and set to work building a car. By 1900, he enlisted the aid of another inventor, Walter Marr, and they built their first vehicle. Their invention attracted the attention of one of Michigan's wealthiest men, William Crapo Durant, the president of the world's largest buggy-building business. As soon as he drove one of Buick's early creations, Durant realized that the days of the horse and buggy were over. He teamed up with Buick, and the two went on to make history. By the thirties, Buicks were regarded as some of the finest cars ever made. From the first Buicks through the birth of General Motors and into history, this is the compelling story of the partnership that eventually became the basis for the largest company in the world."





'66 Buick Back From The Dead! - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 5
On this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, we raise a '66 Buick from the dead. After spending 33 years sitting outside in the desert, the broken down Buick Special is revived by David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan of HOT ROD and Rick Pewe of 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine. Rick's mother bought the car when it was near new and parked it when the transmission failed in 1978. In 2011, the guys spent two and a half days wrenching on the car, with the hopes of driving it home from Phoenix to Los Angeles. Come along for the ride and see what happens! HOT ROD Unlimited appears every other Friday on the new Motor Trend channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=motortrend Facebook - http://facebook.com/motortrendmag & http://facebook.com/hotrodmag Twitter - http://twitter.com/motortrend Google+ - https://plus.google.com/101867967859016552744/posts Website - http://www.motortrend.com & http://www.hotrod.com
