Major congratulations to Tony for his Mercury being chosen as one of the top 5 in the “Custom Of The Year” award category from Goodguys. Competition was fierce as all of the competitors were at the Sacramento Autorama. In the end, the Ruggiero Merc won the overall award, but being selected against the likes of D’Agustino, and some of the other major builders was quite an accomplishment.
Just completed some work for a local specialty restoration shop on this badass Ferrari 275 GTB. This thing had been wrecked several times over its long history and some of the repairs were just short of scary. There were rust issues (its a steel bodied car) as well as damage on the quarter. We fabbed completely a new quarter lip, new trunk floor complete with correct wheel holding pieces, as well as a rear apron for the car. We massaged the nose back into shape, fixed some poor welds and metal finished all of our work. Can’t wait to see this when its complete.
