    Bagged my Mercury, Well I had it bagged! Romero Marshall at Marshall Automotive here in Hollister did a killer job with a two pump set up, C-notched the frame, redid the driveline tunnel for clearance, did some really nice fab work on the front end to get it down. First shot is the before! Can't even put my lakes back on! Put my 54 Cadi caps on for a change. My wife is going to kill me when she see's I put her picture up !

    I'm not a fan of lake pipes anyway, they really accentuate how high the bumpers are compared to the rockers. Looks great this way, with caps but without pipes. Nice color too.

    I just read about this car in R&C! There is a 56 2-dr sedan less than 2 miles from my house and I'm just itchin' to catch somebody outside with the garage door open for an excuse to stop by! Send me a message if you have some of those cool dog dish caps these came with, I'd like a real nice set for my 62 Monterey. Great car you have!

    Not only is your Merc bagged but it looks like it (or its twin) got a 4 page spread in April, 2009 issue of Rod & Custom. Congrats.

    Ya thats my car in R & C thought I would post the bag shots then spill the beans about the magazine feature! April 2009 Rod & Custom. Rick Amado shot the pictures for the layout last year down by Paso Robles at a mission in San Miguel.

    Hey 390Merc, I've got the caps but they are better wall art than on a car, pretty hammered ! Thanks, Ki
