    More people need to quit reading magazines like Ol Stool Rodzzzzzz and Rebel Rodzzzzzzzzzz , learn from the original magazines and builders, learn the history of custom cars , then build quality traditional cars like this !

    Who made the rear tails in the bumper guards? I attempted to make some for my '49, just curious if those were bought or custom made?
     
  19. Wow, what a tastefully done Merc. Very clean and not over done.
     
  20. Thanks man,I just tried to keep it simple,just trying to get it back on the road now:D.It has been a long time since I went sleddin.

    Beautiful but I want to see pics of the Caddy
     
  30. Jeez, that car is PERFECT!

    Although I can appreciate something on almost any car I see, I always think to myself "It's nice, but I would have...". Jeff, I can honestly say yours is the only car I've seen where I would change NOTHING.

    I will never tire of images of your car. Makes my 5 year search for the right Merc seem worthwhile (know of any?).
