    When I was ten years old in 1977 a neighbour had a 59 cadillac which was quite a sight on a UK council housing estate - I fell in love with american cars at that moment. It was 30 years later, that inspired by my own 8 year old son's desire to own a V8 that I bought my first american - a 76 corvette - all I could afford. We quickly realised that we loved the experience but really wanted something older so bought a 54 GMC Step Side Pick up within a few months. We mildly rodded this with fenton headers, dual exhaust, offenhauser valve cover and matching air filter and beauty rings - other than that it was factory standard and drove like a 56 year old pick up! With so many years missing out, we wanted to experience a fifties car next so currently we own a 54 Mercury Montery Hard Top - its been in the UK since 1956! So far we have changed the stock wheel trims for Beauty Rings and Spider hubcabs, the head lights are frenched and we are currently looking into lowering 3 inches all around. Then we are going to shave all the excess chrome and add full length lakes pipes so we have an authentic mid fifties custom - can't wait. Moving forward from there we would really like a Model A - our plans would be to remove fenders, keep the 4 banger in it and add period parts for a really simple but authentic hot rod - will have to see how the cash goes!
