1958 MERCURY COMMUTER STATION WAGON -- SLIGHTLY CUSTOMIZED
UPDATE: This Merc was returned to this dealership and is for sale. I was
very fortunate to capture this beauty with my camera for 20 minutes later
an antique car transporter picked this up to deliver to it's new owner.
What a find! Beautiful metallic paint, wide white walls on tasteful
wheels, reconditioned interior all add up to make this a stunning custom.
1958 was the second year of Mercury's space age design with sheet metal
sculpture all around. There are 3 station wagon offerings and include the
Commuter, Voyager and Colony Park. All wagons were either 2 or 4 door, 6
passenger or 9 passenger. The engines provided for wagons were all V8's
ranging from 383 cid / 312 - 330 bhp., or a 430 cid / 360 - 400 horses.
Mercury still have matching front and back massive bumpers and that space
gun looking design running along the rear side culminating into the famous
wedge-shaped taillight. Push button controls are still used for
transmission gear selection. There were 8,601 of these 4-door 6 passenger
wagons made under the Commuter name this year. The more I see these 57-58
Mercury's the more I'm in appreciation of them as a prime example of
fifties excess but also sculpted metal works of art. Thanks very much for
viewing this 1958 Mercury Commuter station wagon.

Lost IL Wrecking Yard
Some pictures of cars at a junkyard in the middle of IL. I found it while
going to a state college, he had a ton of Ford LTD stuff I needed. This is
my tribute to some fine cars that once ruled the road. I did NOT pick this
song originaly when I put this together (it was a 70s R&B song), since it
was not authorized, YouTube had a limited amount of songs to choose from.
This was the best I could find.
getting the 1973 plymouth from my neighbors house onto the ramps
Well, only half the engine was running and very poorly at that, but at
least I got it onto the ramps lol. Since the video I've rebuilt the carb,
changed the master cylinder, changed both front brake calipers and brake
pads, changed all of the spark plugs, changed the oil and filter. I have a
new cap/rotor/plug wires/fuel pump/coil to still change but it's supposed
to rain for the next few days so I will get to it eventually.
