The guy in front built this coupe in 1952, first with a flattie, then a bored out 322 Nailhead. He owned it for 57 years, racing at Daytona against Parnelli Jones, Lee Petty, et.al., taking 4th place in the flying mile @ 125+ MPH. In 2009, he sold it to the other gent. The trans is a '39 Buick top-loader, mated to the torque-tube (no tailshaft). To me, this is the shit! This next car was built on the Eastern Shore in the early fifties. It started as a '37 Chevy, with Lincoln rear fenders, Buick fade-aways, and '50 Ford hood. The 216 block cracked one winter, and the car was never finished. It was purchased 5 years ago (+/-) from the builder's survivors. This Ford was purchased in the early fifties, as a customized hard-top (I believe). Over the years, it morphed into this beautiful chopped convertible, complete with working top. Details for days! How about the Olds dash? The same builder did this crazy 3-door Merc, seen elsewhere. Dig the Olds/Buick door scallops. Once again, details abound. The teeth in those front scoops are actually kitchen knife handles! (I'll edit in the builder's name later, when I find his card.) Sunken crest...must have taken a little while. I know there are some Hemi fans here, but I didn't see this dual quad DeSoto elsewhere. And this is where it's sittin'! Speakin' of Hemis, you Mopar fans, what better living room than this?
