Well I wouldn't argue with him one bit on any of it. Just knew it was early '60s before I saw any black Mercurys showing up. Saw some bronze and green 10s but the larger ones I saw in the later 50's were always white to my recollection. Funny I remember that stuff pretty well, yet I can't remember what I eat for breakfast yesterday. LOLLove it!! That had me wearing a big grin! You, sir, have done your homework well. By the way, I have my '58 Super Quiet sitting about 50' from me as I type. Also have a standard '58 Johnson 35hp in the warehouse coming up for sale.
And by the way......"TAKE THAT" Catfisher!!! We were both wrong! Mbullen, you are going to fit in very well around here!
