History

Freddy the Mercury
Freddy came into my world at a pivotal time some seven years ago when my life was taking a change in a different direction. He was purchased with a different color scheme of metallic blue and silver with ghost flames and moved from his then home of Emu Plains to the shores of western Lake Macquarie. In the last two years he has undergone a full bare metal restoration with new paint and some mechanical repairs. In that time he has had the good fortune to win some accolades at local car shows. Owning Freddy has given me the opportunity to make some new and wonderful friends in both the hot rod and Rock and Roll community. For people of a more technical nature Freddy’s vital statistics are as follows. He is a 1946 Mercury two door town sedan. I consider Freddy very much part of my new life, almost a member of the family some might say. He is washed, maintained and driven regularly. My beautiful partner and myself relish any opportunity to put on our best 1950,s attire, polish Freddy and head off to local car shows and Nostalgia events.
