Default Reminds me of Doc in the movie Cars

Shoebox ford and not a Mercury but fun to watch anyway. Remember you have to turn right to go left!

And I'm guessing more than a flathead under the hood. Have to admit I've noticed the resemblance between Hudson and Ford/Mercury in the early fifties. At a distance, under poor lighting they have fooled me.

Where was that filmed? I've seen a very similar looking car at shows in Kuna, Idaho.

I've seen similar chopped top Shoebox Fords at just about every custom car show that I have attended.

Looks like a blast!



I always thought it'd be nice to find about 2 acres up here and level out a 1/8 mile track and have some local events and club runs. Granted you'd have to sign a release sheet!
