Zed I took the inspiration from Charlie Lopez But changed up the gull wings and made them full doors. I wanted to put spokes on it also but that would of put me in the lowrider catagory and I think it was more custome. I have a few more crazy Mercs on the table that will be just as crazy.


You've changed more than that ! like i ve said, i see a tribute, not a clone ;)

Well said. After viewing this post I went and did some research to see what the original car looked like and as impressed as I was with the original car, I have to say that your shuttle changes made the car. I agree with Zed, it's more a tribute then a clone.

Anthony, this Merc is just stunning! The paint is beautiful and the attention to detail is just mind blowing.

Speechless, Iv'e seen a lot of things done to a Merc, but never gull wing doors. Very creative and well executed build!
