Here is Jack Warner's 1954 Mercury Monterey. It was given to him by his brother,
Jerome, and had a cream top and bittersweet body color with a black and bittersweet interior. Jerome had the
scoop molded on the hood; Jack put lowering blocks on the rear; and Steve Wendell cut 2 coils out of the front and cut the
frame for a better ride. The front end was so far out of alignment, it ate up a set of tires in a week! Merritt's
Garage in Bend did a great job for Jack, helping with allignment and streering arms. Jack
thinks most will remember the pipes on this car: Nice and loud by his standards in 1959! This
picture was taken from Pilot Butte, of course. You can see Bend and the Three Sisters (Faith, Hope and Charity)
in the background.

This is Anne Crenshaw Morin NOT driving her dad's beloved '55 Mercury Montclair (292 Engine,
Trans Merc-O-Matic), the one he named "The Butterball" because of its lovely yellow color. The photo was taken at the
side of her dad's church, Trinity Episcopal, at the end of the main drag in Bend. Anne would love to say she was actually
driving The Butterball in this photo, but she admits that that would be a total lie since not only did he name his cars,
Rev. Crenshaw's cars were like his children and no way would he let his children drive his children! (He was
known to put an electric blanket on an Alfa Romeo Spider he owned when the nights were cold in Lake Oswego.)
