    My name is Dana Merrill, the proud owner of a 1963 Clark model, serial number 29. I joined your group this evening and began reviewing the articles. I was surprised and extremely excited to find an article written by my father Col. Woodrow T. Merrill, discussing the replacement of rubber window seals (article #3).

    I grew up in a Cortez, we had two Clark models and several Kents. When I was fourteen my family toured Mexico in our 1967 Clark Cortez. While staying in Oaxaca, my father was disabled with a severe case of kidney stones and was hospitalized temporarily. When he was discharged, dad pulled me aside for a father to son talk. He asked me if I was capable and willing to drive the family home to Florida. I was one excited kid for sure, and followed dad’s instructions to the letter. That was my first time behind the wheel, Oaxaca to Orlando in a 67 Cortez!

    Now I’m restoring my 63 and plan on touring the states, and beyond. Presently I am still living at the address dad left at the bottom of article #3, but if anyone would need to contact me to talk Cortez, please feel free to call me on my cell: 407-968-9888.

    Thank you for your fine site and having me aboard!

    That is a great story Dana, is your Clark one of your Fathers? My wife and I love to find Clark’s and Kent’s in our state, while I also check for Clark’s on Craigslist in several states.
