The Car History of Alex Beloff III

THE 1959 MERCURY MONTEREY FOUR DOOR POST SEDAN WAS A TRADE IN AND AN ALMOST GIFT FROM SHERMAN JENKINS WHEN HE BOUGHT MY ONE OF A KIND 1959 PONTIAC BONNEVILLE COUPE.  IT WAS A BONUS FOR ALL OF MY EFFORTS REGARDING SEVERAL CARS I HAD DETAILED FOR HIM AND MADE LOT READY.  I WAS IMPRESSED BY THE STYLE OF THE 1959 MERCURY.  I PAINFULLY LEARNED LATER THAT I WAS THE ONLY ONE IN AMERICA THAT THOUGHT SO.  THE CAR RAN GREAT,  WAS STRAIGHT, HAD CORRECT WHITE WALLS AND HAD RECEIVED GOOD CARE.  IT WAS A NON-AIR CAR IN THE FLORIDA SO SUMMER HEAT CAN BE A DETRIMENT BUT HANG ON AIR UNITS WERE COMMON.  I GAVE IT THE BELOFF TOUCH.  APPEARANCE WISE IT WAS NOT A POPULAR CAR.  FINALLY, I HAD A PERSON INTERESTED IN THE CAR AS A SECOND FAMILY VEHICLE.  HE BECAME THE PROUD OWNER.

IT WAS THE ONLY CAR I THOUGHT I WOULD LOSE MY SHIRT ON. I DON’T CARE WHAT THE BOOK SAYS.  WHAT IS IT WORTH IF NOBODY WANTS  IT.  IT IS WORTH WHAT SOMEONE WILL PAY FOR IT AT THE POINT OF RETAIL SALE!
