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’.
