This beautiful 1950 Mercury has crome wheels that reflect a lot of light as does the glassy surface of the dark blue finish. If you were a teenager in 1955 and remember seeing young James Dean in "Rebel Without a Cause" you will remember the black 4 door 1949 Mercury that he drove in the movie. His sultry bad boy image and the Mercury's sinister low slung good looks caused a run on used Mercuries. I think of that movie every time I see an old Merc. Pardon the unintended self portrait in the center of the wheel. All these cars featured this past week were from the Leake Auto Auction last weekend at the Quik Trip Exposition Center at the Tulsa Fairgrounds. Man, you should have been there.
