Hmm. Well, gee. The only thing that ain't perfect is that you don't have a matching 1:1...that we know of. Awesome build and mods!

Very nice Mercury Custom. Body shaping is great, and different. That's good, because I've seen many of those Custom Mercurys which are having same style body shaping everytime. This makes a difference and that's good. Paintjob looks very good too, and it's really shiny. Color choice is great too. Trunk is great also, nice build. Nothing to complaine about.

Thanx!!! Yeah, I thought the same thing, so I lowered the front end just a tad, now the front part of the show pipes dam near hitting the ground!! Thanx for the heads up!! ;)

Hmm. Well, gee. The only thing that ain't perfect is that you don't have a matching 1:1...that we know of. Awesome build and mods!



I wish I did have a 1:1 of it!!! Thanx for the compliments!!

Thanx!!! They are sombreros, its from the same kit, just painted the edges red and applied the Caddy decal. The color is a solid purple, with blue kandi, and red pearl. In certain lighting, the color, you can see the red pearl, then it switches to green pearl for some reason....like a kamilian
