  9. Just looking through my old photos. Thought someone may like this one. Prices are where the license plate goes. All around $11,000. A few Pierces in the background..... Johnny

    Thanks for all the help. I primed the pump, even though the manual said that it had a priming reservoir. That's all it took...... Johnny

    Mercer Raceabout

    Thanks for the interesting update. I have hundreds of old photos from this time period and most of them were taken in the Oakland/San Francisco area. Hesitated putting on line....
