For Sale 1950 Mercury Coupe, full restoration.

This car was purchased by my friend Merle, 1970 in Pomona, CA, and remained in its original condition until the restoration began in 2010.  The car had no rust so no rust repairs have been done.  The original flat head V8 engine has been rebuilt and has less than 500 miles since being rebuilt.  The transmission is a 3 speed with overdrive.  The new single exhaust is whisper quiet.  The car retains the original 6 volt system and starts immediately.  The original radiator has been cleaned and the brake system rebuilt.  The car is painted royal bronze maroon in two stage paint, an original '50 Mercury colour.  All chrome has been replated and all stainless highly polished.  The interior was just completed by Mac's Upholstery in the original three colour-stripe material.  A new rubber mat and door sills were installed.  The trunk has been detailed with original pattern trunk liners.  New glass has been installed with the proper date codes, except the rear window, which is original.  The radio, heater and all gauges are all in working order.  We always recommend a personal inspection/test drive when buying any car, if possible.

A-Bombers Old Style Weekend 2012

This weekend it was time again to fill all the senses for the A-Bombers 17th “Old Style Weekend”. Lots of bikes and cars in different styles was again showing up, there was a wide mix from original to cool, cooler or the hottest you can find…. To avoid to be directed to the visitors parking, you have to come there in an American car up to 1956 model, or on a bike in 30s - 50s American style. The style of the car or bike is the whole thing here.

As usual it was lots of people who came to make their love to 1950s Rock’n’roll life style.  Somebody to have the hair cut in rockabilly style, buying a pair of Dickies-pants, or to sit down in the artist's chair to have a rockabilly tattoo as a lifelong commitment, to this life style. All time with a wide range of rockabilly music from International bands as well from the DJ, Trasan.

 C’mon lets Rock’n’roll!
