    So it begins again... Back in March a client asked me to build a custom, a '51 Merc, that somehow never was chopped. The client wants to remain anonymous, but he definitely did not want your typical custom Merc. I knew this would be a fun and creative build. So, here's what we've got so far... and no it will never be chopped.

    Ignore him, Cody. Chop it to death! (maybe he'll show himself...)

    Hell, it's a mystery how anybody would drive that Mile-High-Merc!

    Nice metalwork. Is that a Kaiser dash? Will it have bamboo on it? Interesting.
