This must be De Ja Vue (?) The first time I bought my ’49 Merc It was painted Red and white with a roller. Previous owner used house paint. Running, driving, coupe, overdrive....25 dollars.
I stripped it in my apartment parking lot with an electric drill and a sanding disk. Owned the car twice. Sold it the second time in 1992 for 19,500. (sold it the first time for 750)
Memories are priceless.
