  1. Hello guys, So here's some more details for you all. This car is located on the Maine Craigslist. 1953 Mercury Monterey 4 door, dark green. $5800. I spoke with the seller on the phone, very nice. Next morning asked about a time and he was very rude... So decided not to waste my time with someone like that... (Of course he was nice again when I said I will pass) Said the car needs shocks, tires, carb rebuild, tune up, etc. 35 year old repaint in okay condition. Looks like a nice car if any of you want a good looking cheap driver in Maine.
  2. Dave, he said he is working and just doesn't want it to take all day, probably is tired of the tire kickers. Maybe I'll be able to get a short ride, I don't know. Grog, he said he's got a title.

Looks to be complete. Good interior. Last on the road a few years ago. Seller says it needs a general tune up, tires, carb rebuild, shocks, the works. Seems
  4. Good thing in NH you don't need a title for an antique car
  5. Wow, thank you everyone for your help! Didn't expect as many responses as there are... I've seen a few of these on the local Craigslist, but there a quite a few new finds too. Thank you everyone once again. If you'd like, keep bringing in suggestions!
  6. Hello folks, As the title says, I'm a 17 year old. I've been interested in antiques for many years, and over the past couple have started to get into cars. I built a 1927 T speedster over the past winter as a learning experience, and am now (or soon will be) ready to upgrade. I do have an actual daily driver. But I am looking for something to drive a lot during the warmer months (New England). I'd like something that has plenty of parts or support for (especially easy to find sized tires and stuff like that) I do not mind things like no radio, no power anything, low max speed,
