    Thanks Terry. Your advice is directed to the younger generation, but it applies to all of us. One day at a time, and make it the best you can. Hope all your future tests go well, we’re going to await your return, your participation will be missed @ the message board. Come back feeling better than when you go into testing, and don’t forget to keep your Brothers in the loop. All the best—-Lou

    I should have known, thanks Sancho...Bo’s showing them how it’s done on Streets of Gold. I’m not going to say the usual, which is R.I.P. no - no. I’m going to salute the man by saying “carry on Bo” inspire as you have done, amongst us here on earth.

  7. With the pans on either end and the Cadillac tail lights that one reminds me of the AMT 1949 Mercury kit.

    Interesting trim treatment on it. I like it!

  9. 58th Annual Draggins Rod & Custom Show this past Easter weekend brought out only a few H.A.M.B. type customs, but the few that were there were cool..

    Caught this nice Merc before it was "opened up" for display: IMG_2417 copy.jpg

    I know.. The bunny - and the pink spot on a blue car. But it was Easter!

    Ignore the girl. I’d like to see more pics of the car. I’m digging the subtle flames and panels.

  20. Another angle of the '53 above:

    Also, I see now that the car was originally a convertible - not a Vicky as I had guessed earlier.
