    One of my favorites too. Sorry that that version will soon be lost forever, but your Merc was once a magazine car to in a very different incarnation {I like your version a lot better! } But it is the current owners car and his vision of a custom Merc, so more power to him. My own Merc no longer represents the mild un chopped custom I acquired in 1996 and that the previous owner drove since he took it from a stock shit green flat head powered original in to a sbc 327 4spd in 1973. I am the 3rd owner and each owner had a different idea what a 51 Merc should look like and it is now a 428 fe , 4 speed no skirt chopped, frenched and shaved mag wheeled off topic version of what I would have built in high school in 1971 to 73 right down to the pistol grip Mopar E body shifter! And the chassis is pure 90's and that's why I never post pic of it here!That's why we call it customizing!!!! Make them your own!! ;);) lol Larry

    Thanks for the update, I love traditional Kustoms. Kool to see them built out of the norm. This Merc has a lot of new ideas. I borrowed how he did his shifter. It was too kool of an idea..... I get pictures deleted that don’t fit the HAMB requirements. I respect that but when I see something kool I just have to share it. When i saw this Merc in Custom Rodder it had a lot of kool ideas. I’m looking forward to seeing the next chapter. I know it will be a kool one... Thanks for the kind words about my Merc. Embarrassed that you remember seeing it in it’s ugly state. Lol! If ya don’t mind, Message me pics of your Merc. I’d like to see them.. Happy Trails, Mick

    Thanks for posting that Hirohata video. Looking forward to the next one. Just a note of correction, I believe it is the voice of Greg Sharp who says "the teeth in the quarter scoops are from a '49 Chevy". Not correct. '49's didn't have teeth. The teeth are '52 Chevy ... and a very cool clever use of them. Pointing this out just for accuracy. Fact is, Greg Sharp has probably forgot more about hot rods and kustoms, in general, than I will ever know. KOOL video.
