Nice Pair of Mercs
Got the 52 Merc out for a few pictures beside the "new" 53 Merc. Weather forecast indicates colder weather coming in the next couple of days. Maybe snow too so I wanted to get the 53 indoors where working conditions can be a little more conducive to working without heavy mitts on. Above normal temps the past week (just above freezing) made it comfortable working. I'm pretty enthusiastic about working on these cars but when I start to freeze up I tend to lose a little of that enthusiasm. These cars are so similar that to the average person they appear alike. After spending almost the past 3 years working on the 52 I can pick out quite a few differences between them. Useless information to most but I'm right into that kind of stuff lately.
The 53 was intended to be a parts car for the 52 but now I'm thinking its too good to start scavenging parts off. So I may need a parts car for the parts car. I guess a fool and his money are soon parted.
