While out at the LA Roadster show with a Merc I was displaying, I had a few guys come up and chat, then the discussion would turn to them saying they were looking for a chopped Merc project. I had a 51 that had been put on the back burner now (8 years) and I started thinking, maybe I'll just sell it the way it sits if anybody is looking and get some concrete poured around the shop or whatever..So I threw it out there to the guys who asked at the show and one wanted to come and check it out a few days later. He ended up buying it, so I thought great, I'll get some concrete and maybe a new toy to tinker with. Well.......I didn't get my concrete. I was on the fence being a glass car, but it had all the right goodies to start, so I said what the hell and went for it.. And thanks Badbob for being my co-pilot 2 weeks in a row!
