557,000 Miles and Counting (She's 90; Her Car's 45; Both Are Still On The Road)
At 90 years old, this Depression-era great-grandmother from Orlando, Fla., has a lesson for all of us about surviving in a tough economy. Shes still driving her 1964 Mercury Comet Caliente. Price back then: $3,289. Thats less than the $4,500 the government gives to trash a car today in the cash for clunkers program. She jokes her car has been oh-so-faithful. She's better than three husbands," Veitch said. Shes never lied to me, shes never cheated on me, and I can always depend on her. But with nearly 600,000 miles on the odometer, the real story is in those lifetime warranties. She paid Midas $42.23 for a lifetime muffler. Such a deal! Midas has replaced her muffler seven times. Ditto with JCPenney and her battery: Shes had 17 batteries replaced. Even though JCPenney no longer has an automotive department, they still make arrangements to honor her contract. Then theres Sears and the shock absorbers. Sears has replaced her shocks three times. Three cheers for Rachel, who has collected for all Americans who bought extended warranties but for some loophole reason, never collected. As I sat with Rachel in her living room, teapot on a doily, I felt I could be with anyones grandmother in America. But when we hopped behind the wheel of her baby, the car she nicknamed Chariot so long ago, her bright eyes and tight grip confirmed Rachel, like her car, is an American original. She picked up her 1970s-era CB radio, flipped over to channel 19 and asked, Is anyone out there? Static. No answer. Without missing a beat, she joked, I guess theyre all dead. If there was ever a person who loves to kid around, loves cars, and is as quick as a rabbit start in a Mercury with a 260 V8, its Rachel. Shes pushed her car up to 120 miles per hour. The speedometer quits at 120, so I could have been going faster, she said. Rachel, a retired nurse, enjoys showing off her car to auto enthusiasts. Her goal (yes, folks in their 90s still have goals) is to one day go toe-to-toe with another funny, car-loving American: Jay Leno. As they used to say in the old radio days: Stay tuned.

1964 Mercury Comet STK 55 ATL
These little Mercury Comets are getting difficult to find, you just don't see them that often compared to other models from the 60's. They're also a nice change from all the Ford Mustangs out there if you're a Ford fan and want a smaller car with a little performance attitude for not a lot of money. Those are both probably reasons why we've been selling nearly every mid-60's Falcon & Comet we get lately, and we've been selling them fast. To say these cars are hot in the collector marketplace right now would be an understatement. And the one we�ve got here is the best yet! This beautiful example is a very solid Georgia car and it's got a numbers-matching drive train. We can trace this car to being in GA all the way back to 1973, in fact it's got a 1973 GA title that goes with it. The Vin#(4T23K549597) tells us it's a Caliente 2DR Hardtop that was produced in the Metuchen, NJ Ford plant with the K-Code 289 4V engine. The body of this car is very straight and all the trim and emblems look excellent. We were most impressed with the car's undercarriage as the original floor pans are still in place and look virtually new. That's really hard to find in these cars as they were prone to rusting easily but this one somehow escaped all of that. The original metal door tag is still in place and looks excellent so this car has the matching Vin# on both the fender and the door tag. That's worth mentioning because all too often one or the other is not readable on a mid-60's Ford/Mercury. The door tag tells us the car is correctly finished in its original color of Maroon Metallic/Burgundy (Code X). Moving inside, this car's interior was just completely re-done in the correct Medium Palomino (Code 39) upholstery per the door tag. The carpet, headliner, door panels, and seats are all brand new and look fantastic. The original gauge panel was even sent out and reconditioned to look showroom new. A Grant steering wheel was added for better looks but we have the original in the trunk for you purists. Like most Comets, this car doesn't have many power options (and no AC) but it is a factory four speed car (Code 5) and it came with a 3.25 rear end (Code 4). These car's were about performance, not creature comforts. Being a Caliente, it does have the upgraded interior with courtesy lights on the doors (they work) and wood grain on the dash, etc. The car still retains its numbers matching K-Code 289 4V and it's running excellent and is very powerful. Other than the steering wheel, the 15 Inch Amercian Racing wheels, and engine dress-up kit this car looks just like it would have sitting on the showroom floor in 1964. This is a really nice & original Comet Caliente that is sure to hold its value due to its correctness and rarity. Call us today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta, GA showroom. For more information, please call (678) 279-1609 or toll free (877) 367-1835.

1964 Mercury Comet Caliente
http://www.barnfineclassics.com/inventory/1964-mercury-comet-caliente Here's an extraordinarily clean '64 Comet! It's powered by a nicely assembled 289ci V8 and a 4 speed manual transmission! The engine has a mild cam, an Edelbrock intake manifold, an Edelbrock carburetor, Flowmaster dual Exhaust with chrome tips, a Pertronix coil, a fresh battery, aluminum valve covers and air cleaner, a K&N air filter, and a Flex cooling fan. Everything under the hood is very neat and sanitary! The insides consist of super comfortable vinyl bucket seats with cloth inserts, a center console, very clean carpet and floor mats, a tachometer along with the factory gauges, a Grant steering wheel, 2 speed wipers, and a Kenwood CD player with 6x9 rear speakers! The Comet has a set of Magnum 500 14 inch wheels with 195/70/14 Cooper Cobra radials, traction bars, very nice glass and chrome, and absolutely beautiful black cherry paint! This thing starts, runs, and drives fantastic! It's incredibly fun and makes great power!

$1,000,000 Ferrari Restoration Detail
This Ferrari is a good friend and customers car that was flown in the night before from the UK. It needed a bit of work to get it looking presentable again, and after a 2 day restoration... shouldn't need anything more than layers of sealant and wax for the rest of its life. (if cleaned and maintained properly in the future) This video shows you what I'm thinking about as I restore a $1 million car, and how understanding the interaction between different materials will effect the outcome of your work. The purpose of this video is not about "step by step" demonstration, but rather a glimpse of what professional detailers think about when working on extremely rare cars. Thanks for watching and send me an email if you have any questions. larry@ammonyc.com -Larry
