Reference – Customs

By: David Palmeter 

Above – One of my all time favorites – 1951 Mercury “Hirohata” Custom by George Barris – inspiration for many cars – actual and model. When the builder said the Cadillac engine was a tight fit, he wasn’t kidding!

Below – A fantastic story about doing what a car was made to do – drive it! The story chronicles driving the Merc from LA to Indy – and back!
