Building "Reprise" - A Custom 1951 Mercury
Over the last several years Bio Kustumz has been building this '51 Merc for
Jerry Horton, the Guitarist for band Papa Roach. What started as a simple
fix-it job uncovered some devastated metal work under loads of bondo. Bio
Kustumz began hand forming each body panel, rechopped the roof and even
machined their own wheels. Reprise will be featured in the Kinetik Audio
SEMA booth this year.

Mercury Marauder DOOM @ Absolute Pro-Formance
www.MercuryMarauder.net member DOOM on the Dyno at Absolute Pro-Formance
for their www.mdstreetscene.com (MDSS) spring Dyno meet. First and second pull
the car downshifted, after the first pull the car had to be adjusted on the
rollers since it kept moving over to the edge of the rollers. One of the
straps were being burned from an Exhaust pipe so the Dyno operator wanted to pull the
car off for safety reasons after 3rd pull since he let out early on it
after feeling it get a little loose on the Dyno. 477rwhp and 491tq with
perfect AFR across the board.

Mercury Cars of 1949 to 1951
The Mercury car model has been around since 1939 and was introduced as a
mid range priced vehicle by Edsel Ford.
Cars built between 1949 and 1951, would in later years prove to be very
popular amongst the Hot Rod Car Enthusiasts. They would reshape the steel
to produce cars that would set a new standard for Customized Vehicles.
Early model Mercury cars of 1949 to 1951 had a 90 degree V type, "L" head 8
cylinder engine with a displacement of 255.4 cubic inches. These engines
put out 112 horsepower at 3600 R.P.M.
Later model cars of 1955 replaced the "L" engine with the "Y" block V-8
producing between 188 and 198 horsepower dependant on the
engine type for that year.
This slide show is a part of a series of pictures of cars from different
car shows that I've attended here in Southern California U.S.A.
101mm TURBO CTS-V - 1200hp Cadillac!!!
This was probably the NUTTIEST car we encountered at the Pikes Peak Air
Strip Attack - this 1170hp 101mm turbo
equipped Cadillac CTS-V was turning heads everywhere it went. Hop into the
passenger seat as we race down the 1/2 mile raceway at over 180 mph!
