This was a new show (in Addison) for me but this was their Seventh Annual Benefit for Shriner’s Children’s Hospital. I was surprised to see so many familiar cars and owners.

This one ‘new’ car to me of great interest was Gil’s red and white 1956 Mercury Montclair convertible. This gorgeous Merc was restored from ’91-’93 and Gil bought it in 1995. At first he was scared to drive it. The motor is a 312 cu in with a 4 bbl; this produces 30 extra horsepower than the standard engine. Everything works, even the clock.

Here are some of the songs we heard from the ‘DJ’.
