'50 Merc...Suicide King
The ’50 Merc is a fave car amongst hot rodders and customizers as their large production numbers made them readily available. But for this month’s challenge over at LUGNuts I customized a Merc like never before! The challenge is called 52 Pickup and is all about cards and card games...so naturally I gave this lead sled a striking bilateral black and white color scheme with a red interior...the colors of playing cards. The car is called Suicide King, named for its suicide doors...and it happens to be the nickname of the King of Hearts, who usually holds a knife to his own back. With chrome details, this chopped custom is sure to be a show-stopper!
