Talk about Merc

Some of you may know that I've been working on my 51 Mercury.
I just don't feel comfortable to post it...besides, my best friend Desu asked me not to.
as far as I know,there are only two 51 Mercs in Indonesia.
and the one I have is the first one that will got chopped.
so it is very Important for me to meet one of the first guy in the World that Chopped a 51 Mercury.
The man is George Barris.

With his brother Sam, he drove a brand new 51 mercury from the dealer straight to their shop.
back in 1951.

and chopped it !!

as you may know.... 51 Merc have a different rear window than the 49-50.

we talked for hours about his ideas, fabricating , chopping...

and proportions....

not all chopped merc got a good proportion..

sample of "overdone" Merc.

Don't be afraid to make something new and different !

his famous Munster Koach and Bat Mobile.
