I had a '73 Le Mans - but it sure didn't look like that one! Cool custom!

Very cool custom. I've always wanted to do a custom low rider, myself...

No garage, limited driveway space, and a Homeowner's association make it unlikely at this point. I do, however, have a 'Merc' inspired Wing rattling around inside my head... ;) ;) ;)

Ooh
I can see it now.
A custom rear fender made from the qtr panels and a taillight of a fifty one.
A set of new Indian style rounded hard bags devoid of trim and mounted low to hide the rear wheel and tire.
A set of lakes pipes cut down for exhaust.
A valkery tank and seat for the roundness
A mercury front fender modified to be a.nacelle with a frenched headlight.
A street sweeper front fender with a 51 hood ornament mounted on it.
Www front tire and a set of olds feista hubcaps modified
To fit the front wheel
Everything painted black cherry.
Lots of chrome and polished aluminum on a flat black engine.
Well thats what rattled around in my head after reading about your future build.
Cant wait to see what you actually build someday
