FEATURED STORY
The Leinart Family Owns 163 Mercury Engines 
“This could be Mercury’s largest private collection in the US.”
If you’re ever driving through Connecticut and spot a truck with a license plate that reads “MERC,” that’s Walter and Maureen Leniart. There’s a chance their truck will also be pulling a boat, or perhaps hauling an outboard engine, because their life story is directly connected to spending time together on the water.
