Greetings HAMB community, My name is Kevin and I'm seeking advice on purchasing my first classic car. Well, I've been saving my pennies for quite some time now and I think I'm ready to purchase the oldest car on my dream car list, the 1949-1951 Mercury 4 Door Sedan. Would you guys recommend getting a chopped one with a 1997 ford drive train/chassis, shaved door handles (has holes you poke your finger in), custom grill, shaved trim, or... One with a 350/350 combo setup, everything else looks stock. My fear is that being 5'4", sitting a in chopped one will be hard to drive with good visibility. I also, feel bad to alter a complete stock looking car. While, I do love how the chopped Mercury completely alters the feel and look, the car looks longer, and you really start to notice the lines. But I'm happy to drive an unchopped one with a very mild custom build ...something like.. Well thanks everyone for reading this, and thanks in advance for your advice! Sincerely, Kevin H.
