“Pay it forward” is a real thing. A baby boomer was so impressed by the Greenwood Corvette videos posted by Casey Putsch of Toledo, Ohio, he was inspired to give his own collector car to a worthy next-generation enthusiast for restoration.

The hero, Mike Morrison, explains that growing up he had severe learning disabilities but also a teacher who showed him patience and tenacity to learn engineering concepts. He has never forgotten this and wants to see a young person develop skills and passion through the restoration of the ultra-rare S-code 1967 Mercury Cyclone.

Fully restored, the S-code Cyclones are bringing up to $50,000 to $60,000 in private sales and at auctions. This one is going to need a full restoration – but clearly this is how the journey begins for so many enthusiasts, who someday might pay it forward themselves.
