    Hi all. Well , Merc Butch Blueberry is my second step in Lead Sled culture and tradition.But what was before?Why?Thats simple.... In internet I found Ford 1951 Deluxe Rockys for sell .When I first saw this Ford project , I could not continue wondering anymore about other cars projects and of course bought for 1 week later .All inside car was empty but it was no matter. Looks like middle between old aircraft , cars and futuristic carairrocket like 5th elements futuristic cars. Am think what big part of all of us ,bought 1st them project car not as only money for money investments but choose it by heart and dreams . Well it was a same.It was only showcar and nothing else ,no floor ,no interier ,no steering well, no glass no no and more no inside, ok .But men! Ford body was absolutely perfect . Thx Wrecked Metals Boise Idaho and Matt Whitlock personal . Much more then 2 years I worked with Rockys in different services , M-Customs (https://www.instagram.com/m_customs/)was finaly choice for price and quality of works.Much works with Solidworks was present for create steering custom parts for make steering driving well and for combination air conditioner with hear .And now Rockys is real gran turismo cars for usual traffic with all needs inside , max velocity captured by gps 118 Mil/h in usual federal road between Moscow and St. Petersburg . more than 1553,43 mil summary for 4 days journey from Moscow to St. Petersburg (439,31 mil) , long time drive in St. Petersburg and way back to Moscow (439,31 mil ) ,with short stop for eat and spoke with any ho intresting about Ford. After 2 mounth I repeat my Big Journey and repeat my St.Petersburg vacation .Some yellow-belly guys from Moscow told whats is riskily too much ,well it is not for me and live is not to long for waiting best time best chance .Just do what you really want to do .And all 2 Long Journeys finished ok .more then 3400 mil for 3 month.After all I make balancing of propeller shaft because shaft was non never balanced before .Nothing else.Now In Moscow at any weather I may drive it very well for coffe place or pitza or just for fun. Well what inside - Basic ford frame , Chevy small block 5,7 with stroker , AT350 , Air bag ,Air horn ,Audio madness sabb ,Coker Classic G78-15 , In feb of 2017 I sold it to another owner and close this project .I wish him thousands km (mil) of funny time with cool music and cool friends without any crashes and breakages

    Where do you find parts for American cars in Russia ?? Must be difficult (i.e. expensive) to import them.

    Congratulations on some beautiful cars !!

    Where ?nowhere)) we just haven't any parts ,all what we have is eBay and delivery to us ,but sometimes it make double price of item ,for example tire cost 140$ delivery 160 $ total price for me will been 300, but sometimes we make some part by CNC or welding from metal sheet ,but for do clone of something you must have it already .one rule - pay and waite ,and hope for part compatible with your car
