Quoted from an article from the Toronto car show in Feb.

"Custom car builder Pat Keating is a master metalworker, so it was no surprise when custom car enthusiast Richard Barber contacted him looking to build a Merc custom that would stand the test of time and become an extension of the customs of the 1950s. After making the 1951 Mercury into a hardtop, Keating modified the chassis with a “C’d” rear framerail and de-arched rear springs. Amazingly the stock engine was in such good shape it was kept in the car. The Holly carburetor’s striking air breather was designed and fabricated by Keating, along much of the rest of the car, followed by PPG Black Concept and Vanilla Shake paint applied by Larry Sneed. The result is a stylish and sophisticated vehicle, reminiscent of a tuxedo."

The merc that is going to be at the show is bad.
The guy that owns the car,(Richard) lives four streets over from me.
I also know Pat and the guy that painted the merc.
Larry Sneed and his dad Charlie are also great car builders.
Richard also has alot of nice cars other than the merc.

The only picture I'm seeing is a purple & yellow 46-48 Chevy Coupe made into a hardtop with Mercedes headlamps.
Mercury, Mercury, who's got the Mercury?
