The story of this Mercer Raceabout reads like a novel. Mister Jalopy's Hoopty Rides could link nearly every car at the Wiglesworth auction, but so little would be added. There are many wonderful cars that appear very original, sometimes not running, often dusty but of such high integrity. Even autos like the lowly, engine-less export Cadilliac are fascinatingly researched and described - certainly more than the Butterfield commission would support.
