Many Mercurys have been customized into hot rods, but Nancy was determined to purchase an original, stock car. Her 1951 Mercury Sedan is the third generation of the Mercury Eight series of cars, first produced in 1939. The 1951 Mercury Eight model was the last of that era of cars and was changed starting in 1952. Nancy’s love of cars started when she was just a youngster, inspired by her father who was a mechanic. He would take her to see the car races, where they were frequently racing coupes. As a child, she really loved her father, the races, and fast cars. Now, she is still around cars all the time, going to as many cruise-ins as possible and the Syracuse Nationals. Along with her husband, George, they both find much enjoyment together in their mutual interest in cars.
