About my car

From the first time I laid eyes on the 1950 Merc while watching the movie Cobra with Dad, I knew that would be my car one day. I remember telling my Dad that's my dream car papa, I'm going to get one of those cars! He smiled and just agreed. 30 years later it brought me great pride and joy to set the money on the table and tell my Dad, I'm ready now, let's go get my dream car. To see my father face was priceless as we took a road trip up north to make the purchase was amazing! To look back in disbelief that the Merc strapped on the back of the trailer was truly mine. Dreams do come true!

  • This car was made in 1950 and I've driven it since 2016
  • The Mercury Eight (3rd Gen) was in production from 1949 to 1951
