His 1937 Ford coupe is history on wheels


OWNER: Mike Mersman, Seattle
OCCUPATION: Boat broker
CAR'S MAKE AND MODEL: 1937 Ford five-window coupe
"I LOVE MY CAR BECAUSE ... it has a great history. It was turned into a race car in 1947 and back into a street car in 1970, and it's been cruising the streets of Seattle ever since. It's an all-steel original 1937 Ford, never damaged, with low mileage. It doesn't have a heater, but the smiles people beam at me when I drive by keep it warm enough for cool Seattle days and nights."
