Almost time for my clubs annual Hot Wheels night (9th June), so I thought I'd better start my car. Couldnt get anything close to what I wanted to do originally so looking through the stash I found this likely victim.

This Merc' turned out real nice! I like the color on it, and decals are fitting nicely. Engine detailing looks good too. It's simply awesome build. Rearend looks good too. Great to see '49 Mercurys which aren't all built Customs... :lol:
