Update on my 66 Merc

Hey guys, just thought i'd give an update on my little project. Found that 66 Merc with 51000 miles. Got it running very well! Did a full on tune up including all fluids, belts and hoses. Edlebrock performer intake with Edlebrock 600 cfm carb. Dual 2 1/2" exaust with 40 series flowmasters and cutouts. Detailed the engine compartment. This car runs so good! Always get thumbs up! Unfortunatly I have to sell it. Wife absoluly hates it and will not ride in it. Guess i'll see what I can get. If I can't sell it i'm going to get it painted Jet Black and she will have to live with it! LMK What you guys think!

Check out my burnout video! Look for the fire at the tires! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LqaMURI9PyM

Keep the car, lose the 'graphics' and put the better half on notice. Oh, and get a posi chunk for it!

Sorry...I don't blame her, I wouldn't ride in it either with the graphics on it. Overall a really nice car though.

FYI, the fuel filter you are using are a known leak-er

Thanks guys. I can see this with a clean black paintjob. Maybe even bag it with some nice 17" 18" rims. Redo the interior. I love the lines on it.

Graphics or no graphics, thats a good looking car and anyone should feel privileged to ride in it. Why does she not want to, I can't understand that.........I know I know before anyone flames me, its a woman and I'm not supposed to understand it. Some people's kids man.......... Nice car!
