Thomas Koriles sent us these pictures and writes
"These are pictures taken in1957 with my 1951 4door mercury. All the work was done by me over a 2 year period. I never finished the car. It was bought by GEORGE BARRIS from California and he finished it. I later tried to find out what happen to it but no luck. It was fun driving this car. If there was 4 of us in the car, 3 had to get out in order to get the car up the drive way at the Root beer drive-in on Michigan Avenue. I remember the days of cruising up and down Woodward stopping at the Totem Pole with all the other guys. Those were the good days".
Real cool tail light treatment!
