“The car has all the earmarks of being garage-kept and well maintained,” Mr. Wagoner says. Even the vinyl wood graining on the flanks of the car show no signs of fading.

In the past six months Mr. Wagoner has been busy working on his Mercury and the big Colony Park now sparkles from the roof rack on down to the huge wheel covers and from the hidden headlights at the front of the car back to the trailer hitch.
