    '61 Mercury Comet — She is solid as a rock. parts are harder to find compared to lets say a '61 Falcon. She is sturdy and will look great when I am done restoring it. Is has a Ford 170 cid motor in it, which is totally rebuilt

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Good old American Metal- When cars were cars

    Cons: Parts are sort of hard to find

    '61 Mercury Comet Wagon — I think the wagon got ripped off in the fin dept. Still a sweet 60's ride though. Loads of room for dogs and plywood. Obviously she's not done yet, someday maybe. It's a fun car just the way it is. I put a 289 in over 10 years ago, that helped the performance huge!

    Pros: Fast

    Cons: poor handling, overheats

    My 1961 Comet — Its taken me a few years to start this project. It's hard finding parts for a car so old. I am determined to have it done by the spring of 2015 and hitting the open road and briniging back the good old days when a car was car !

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Nice looking car

    Cons: Finding replacement parts
