    I snapped this little bad-ass 1940 Mercury in the parking lot of the GNRS. Sorry, I dont have any more pics, but does anyone have anymore info on this full custom "sled"? I dont think Ive ever seen a '40 (ford OR merc) done with such machismo. F'in A, man. F'in A.

    There very few that are black (that looks black to me) I think you mean maroon.

    the mitred glass doesnt work but the car looks quite nice. Who doesnt like a 40 Mercury. Any shots of it from the side?

    That car belongs to one of our locals, a tattoo artist named Fip. He's in the Beatniks. It was cool when he pulled right onto the dirt at our King of Clubs show. Most guys with a car that nice are waving their california dusters like they're trying to land airplanes:) That car is the nicest thing in Dago town and he doesn't hesitate to bomb it anywhere.

    With a car like that and drove it from 'dago and parked it with all of them big ass trucks that tower over it just yearning to get a door ding, that guy has balls or he is just like alot of us and considers it a driver and not a car that got there by trailer. I like the car. Badfella, get his ass on here so he can post more pics of it. In my books, black is the only real color for a custom rod or primered out one. And on top of that, how many '40's Mercs do ya see around compared to '54 chevies or '32 fords? KNUX!

    Very nice. I agree with others' comments about the windshield, but I think the skirtless/low-all-around look is a fresh spin on a custom '40 Merc. Works for me.
