Absolutely and positively the Merc - especially that Merc. (EOM) by Frank Kocour #38411.5
These are getting a bit modern for me, but I'd take the Ford - a refreshing look after '58 and '59 (EOM) by John Roberts #38411.6
Really John? I liked the styling of both the 58 and 59 Ford's much better than the 60. (EOM) by George Schire #38411.6.1
George, I think the masses would agree with you. The 60 was by Jack Dodds #38411.6.1.1

I think you're right, Frank. I believe the creator intended to stir the pot. It worked!! (EOM) by John Kuvakas #38410.4.1.2Moderator
I'm thinking maybe Picasso made it. Whoa....I may bid on it myself! (EOM) by Jack Dodds #38410.4.1.2.1
Unusual. Unique. Not for me although I appreciate the imagination and effort. (EOM) by Al Dorado #38410.5
