1953 Chevrolet Belair – Jeff Reimers
Representing STA-BIL® Brand
53 chevy chopped gasser. I like to say a cross between old school with a twist of my style. Started out as a father son project about a year and half ago. Originally was going for the old school tail dragger look. Until I walked into my Dads shop saw it on his lift up in the air with big tires under it. And here we are now! This is what she became. Car also has lots of pinstriping on car frame and nice areas of detail.
1950 Chevy Fleetline – Kasia Jones

Girl built, with a LS 5.3, 2006 Chevy tahoe front clip, 4L60E transmision, air ride, customer pinstriping inside and out by the owner, as well as interior and dash paint.

1950 Mercury Coupe – Michael Broy
Representing Start Your Engines! Brand
Have a 1950 Merc Mild Custom. The only thing that has been done to it is it has 53 Merc Headlight’s, Chrysler Airflow Taillights, has been nosed, decked, hood corners rounded and louvers put in hood. Did not want to chop so added a visor. The Merc has been lowered to give it a nice look. Paint is black with flames all over, even on roof and truck with a little pinstripping on the trunk. Interior is a late 50’s early 60’s style done in a light dark red with squares and pleats with button’s. I did all the sewing from a wheelchair as I am paralyzed. It is one of my dream cars I’ve always wanted and I got one and did it the way I wanted. Thanks for looking Mike
