A few pics from Saturday Afternoon at a Packed filled Lead East !
Great picts! BUT, I can just see it now. That abortion of a truck in the first set of picts is going to get covered in every stupid magazine.
Great picts though, lots of really nice stuff!
Nice photos, thanks for sharing them with those of us who never get into that neck of the woods.
I thought the 40 ford had the most beautiful fat fendered front end. My mind has been changed. This Merc front end is a work of art. Question for the 40 Merc experts, has that hood been modified?
I like how the bumpers are slightly angled back here.
Pretty subtle trick. Seems most of those Pontiac split bumpers
get put on a car in a straight line, not quite matching
the angled/pointed front end of most cars.
Thanks again for the great pics, Nitrofc.
Even the Mad Max truck is entertaining to
you do nice work, keep it up...
That bronze merc is awesome,the paint is fantastic,anymore pics of that gem?
How about these Caddy fins !!!
Great Photos! Thanks.
He's removed some of the stock trim, and painted out some more, but most of what's there is stock '40 Merc. It is a really flattering view of that front end, for sure.
Damn. What the hell happened to that truck?
nothing good that's for sure
can we have a moment of silance for that poor truck
Why does everyone feel the need to take old tow trucks and destroy them?
The pics don't do justice (if that's the right word) to that truck. When he showed up with that thing in the B lot on Fri afternoon the first thing I thought was it was a refugee from a Mad Max movie. His spot was just behind mine until I got lucky enuff to get a spot by the hotel. That "truck" is sick, but not in a good way.....
Thanks MF .. Stayed hometown today and NJoyed a BBQ .. over 1000 pics should be up Monday afternonn ..
looking forward to more pictures
Really nice Pic's I like the Merc's the others where nice too Very nice keep up the good photo taking
One of my Favorite of the Wknd !!
I still cant get my head around this r..r.. shit, some cars seem to have a lot of good work done but a lot appear to be pieces of shit built by people with no skills at all who just want to part of the scene.
So what we all do what we can do in life. Don't you remember when a good Hot Rodder learned to do it all them selves. When I was in High School 50 years ago if you didn't learn to do it your self you got no respect.
It has turned into all these pro shops doing it heh there great but they are pro's and its not how the game started out.
But that's okay too, but never put the people down who are not pro's or you will have a lot of old guys who are pretty good but not pro's climbing all over your butt.
