By MiguelCaparros In the 50's and 60's cars used to be traded in or passed down every two years. The relatively low cost of the cars and the booming economy created an environment where cars were "old" within 4 years. This created a situation that made cars very affordable. A high line car, such as the Mercury could be afforded by a young working family or an enterprising mechanic or customizer. This car is obviously a modern build done by a professional, the lines and and the design elements are right out of the 1950's era builders. Referred as lead sleds, due to the using of molten lead to fill any of the cuts and body work that were done to modify the appearance. A whole new vocabulary was born, french, scalloped, low rider and others became part of the language. The trends created by the Custom builders influence future designs of production cars. The low and wide designs of the 60's culminated in the "wide look" of the 60's.

Last month we visited Japan to attend the Custom Hill Reunion. We were fortunate enough to ride with our homies from Pharaohs Car Club. The Pharaohs all drive very traditional styled lowriders with hydraulics and bias ply tires. We rolled with them on a five hour drive from Nagoya to the car show. The drive was a lot of fun and a great experience, the car show did not disappoint. There was a good mix of customs and lowriders and even some cool hot rods, surrounded by beautiful nature. video: http://www.bysailr.com visit + shop: http://www.deadendmagazine.com

When we install a custom car audio sound system we will of course add a new power wire to connect the battery to our new amplifiers and other equipment. But the problem in many newer cars is the stock battery terminal may have a fusible link, or other electronic device installed directly on the stock terminal which means, we can't simply cut it and remove it. We need a way to retain it. The ultimate battery terminal from Knukonceptz allows us to do just that! ▼ Thank you to KnuKonceptz for sponsoring this video sending a pair of battery terminals for us to show on video!

52 Custom Chevy. The body modifications that were done include chopped, nosed, decked, skirted and pancaked. A custom car is a personal "styling" statement, making the car look unlike any car as delivered from the factory. The first hot rods were pre-World War II cars, with running boards and simple fenders over the wheels. Early model cars (1929 to 1934) were modified by removing the running boards and either removing the fenders entirely or replacing them with very light cycle fenders. Later models usually had fender skirts installed. Many cars were "hopped up" with engine modifications such as adding additional carburetors, high compression heads and dual exhausts. Engine swaps were done, the object of which was to put the most powerful engine in the lightest possible frame and body combination. The suspension was usually altered. Initially this involved lowering the rear end as much as possible with the use of lowering blocks on the rear springs. Later cars were given a rake job either adding a dropped front axle or heating front coil springs to make the front end of the car much lower than the rear. The original hot rods were plainly painted like the Model A Fords from which they had been built up, and only slowly begun to take on colors, and eventually fancy orange-yellow flamed hoods or "candy-like" deep acrylic finishes in the various colors. With the change in automobile design to encase the wheels in fenders and to extend the hood to the full width of the car, the former practices were no longer possible. In addition, there was tremendous automotive advertising and subsequent public interest in the new models in the 1950s. Hence custom cars came into existence, swapping headlamp rings, grilles, bumpers, chrome side strips, and tail lights, as well as frenching and tunnelling head- and taillights. The bodies of the cars were changed by cutting through the sheet metal, removing bits to make the car lower, welding it back together, and adding a lot of lead to make the resulting form smooth (hence the term lead sled; lead has since been replaced by Bondo). By this means, chopping made the roof lower; sectioning made the body thinner from top to bottom. Channeling was cutting notches in the floorpan where the body touches the frame to lower the whole body. Fins were often added from other cars, or made up from sheet steel. In the custom car culture, someone who merely changed the appearance without also substantially improving the performance was looked down upon. Rat rod: imitates (or exaggerates) the "unfinished" and amateur-built appearance of hot rods of the '30s, '40s, and '50s. Street rod: Typically American cars with large-displacement engines modified for speed. They often consist largely of period specific vehicles and components, or emmulate visual characteristics of hot rods of the '30s, '40s, and '50s. There is a great deal of overlap here with hot rods. Modern: The style of contemporary cars. Most often contemporary components and paint finishes of modern cars are used. Customizers also continued the habit of adding decorative paint after the main coat was finished, of flames extending rearward from the front wheels, scallops, and hand-painted pinstripes of a contrasting color. The base color, most often a single coat, would be expected to be of a simpler paint. Flame jobs later spread to the hood, encompassing the entire front end, and have progressed from traditional reds and yellows to blues and greens and body-color "ghost" flames. One particular style of flames, called "crab claw flames", which is still prevalent today, is attributed to Dean Jeffries.

Filmed by American car enthusiast Steve Feldman, the surreal footage shows a fleet of supercars customised to look like moving fireworks displays. Aside from the distinctive LED lights, the group also wrap their cars in chrome and holograms, add powerful strobe lights and even fit flame shooting exhausts – leading to comparisons with the Fast and Furious film series.

MotoeXotica is pleased to present a similar car, a 1951 Mercury Eight Custom Chop Top. Originally made at Ford’s Edison Assembly plant in Metuchen, New Jersey, this car has been heavily modified from stock. Dressed in putty gray paint with stylized maroon pinstriping, the car’s paint and trim show very well, with only minor blemishes visible upon close inspection. Its tinted windows are in good shape and all vehicle lights are intact and clear. The Mercury’s body panels are laser straight, dent-free and the hood features eight rows of vents to allow engine heat to escape. Car sports a four-inch chop with a 3.5-inch slant. Occupying the engine bay is a Ford 460 CID big-block V-8 with a four-barrel carburetor, replacing the original stock 255 CID Flathead V-8. The engine bay is clean and features many performance parts – a Griffin radiator, transmission cooler, fan and shroud, a Weiand intake manifold, competition cam, lifters and valve springs, a FAST E6 ignition, EZEFI self-tuning injection and a two-battery charging system. The engine is buttoned to an automatic transmission with floor-mounted shifter. To get in the car, you have to open the driver’s side vent window then use the interior door release; there are no exterior door handles. The Mercury’s brakes have been converted to power discs. Inside, it has complementary and reciprocating hues, a maroon dash with stylized putty-colored pin stripes – plus putty-colored vinyl seats, split bench in front, with maroon cloth inserts over black carpet. The horn is inoperable but there are working VDO gauges within a burled plood border and flanking the two-spoke steering wheel with an image of the Roman god on the hub. A classic air-conditioning system is under the dashboard with a Pioneer AM/FM stereo above it and a pair of Kenwood speakers in the rear package shelf. Car also has a remote trunk release. Another unique feature of this Mercury is that it has an air-ride suspension with ACCUAIR management system, with Firestone D2600 air bags and two compressor ACCUAIR EXO mounts and an Aeromotive Stealth Fuel Cell. Car rides on radial tires surrounding 15-inch steel wheels. Within its era and beyond, the Mercury Eight was popular with customizers. In 1949, Sam Barris built the first lead sled from a 1949 Mercury Eight; the Eight became the definitive lead sled, much as the Ford V-8 (as the “deuce”) became the definitive hot rod. The Eights were among the first models to receive an aftermarket OHV engine swap, since Oldsmobile and Cadillac developed the first high-compression OHV V-8 engines in 1949, whereas Ford was still using a sidevalve engine. Sam and George Barris also used the 1949 body style to build “the most famous custom car ever,” the Hirohata Merc, for customer Bob Hirohata in 1953. Fiberglass replicas of the Eight, inspired by Sam Barris’ car, are still in production and are popular with custom and rod enthusiasts. Ironically, one of the cars used in “Grease” as a Hell’s Chariot extra, has been found and was put up for sale recently – https://www.yahoo.com/movies/bp/long-lost–grease–car-is-back–for-sale-010941992.html – even more ironic is that it began life as a hardtop. Current mileage on the odometer shows 10,513 miles. It is sold as is, where is on a clean and clear, mileage exempt Texas title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!

New Yamaha XT500 Enduro 2018 - AN X TO A TEE. MotoRelic’s Jaw Dropping Yamaha XT500 Restomod Forget about textbooks and teachers because the two things that will always capture a teenage boys attention are speed machines and wild women. Combine the two and you have a potent mix that will forever be burned into an impressionable young mind! Many moons ago one such youngster witnessed such a sight and it was a Yamaha XT500 that had taken centre stage. Now ready to occupy the lead role in his youthful fantasy, he called Sean Skinner of Hamilton, Virginia’s MotoRelic to build him an XT to rip the roads and woo the women. “My good customer found the ’70s big CC thumper and brought it to me because there was a moment in his adolescence that he remembers very well. A guy he knew rode up on one with his hot girlfriend on the back. He remembered thinking, “man, that dude has it all. The bike! The girl!” As they rode away, he knew one day he would have to have that! He wanted the bike to resemble its stock form but for me to give it a sexy makeover. Just a little nip n tuck… or so I thought,” laughs Sean. Time for surgery and one of the customer’s requests was for a wider rear tyre and to do it properly meant finding a new swingarm to suit. An item from an early model Suzuki PE250 was found to be perfect, but it’s no bolt on fit with Sean having to modify the XT frame and machine up new spacers. Needing just the right shocks to control it all, a call was made to Ikon Suspension who had the perfect set, 15 inch units that even came with the red springs, score! A new rim has been laced up with stainless spokes and its all wrapped up with a fat 130/80-18 Mitas Enduro tyre. Up front however things get an upgrade and brought into the 21st century with the old forks out and a new set of Yamaha YZ250 USD units selected for the job. Once again it’s no bolt on conversion and required a set of custom bearings and steering stem to go together. All mounted up Sean then reduced the massive 12in of travel by 20%, which greatly improved the steering and got the geometry spot on. A 21 inch Excel rim with stainless spokes and rubbered up with a Mitas tyre is a big improvement over stock; so too the Yamaha front disc with Nissin caliper. “With the bike sitting correctly I moved onto the headlight bezel. It was shaped from aluminium and holds an offroad style Hella lamp. Since I’m seriously lacking any metal shaping tools (or skill), I had to get creative to produce the look my customer wanted,” explains Sean. Although we seriously beg to differ and the results speak for themselves! That bezel he crafted from the inner side of a 180° bend from a turbo pipe. While the tank has been notched by hand to clear the new fork setup and both show this Virginia boy really can mould metal! #NewYamaha #XT500Enduro #YamahaXT500Custom #MOTOINTRODUCTION =============== View More ============ Upcoming Bikes in India 2017 and 2018: https://goo.gl/2FkYwi All New Yamaha Motocycles: https://goo.gl/6G9ygd All New Suzuki Motor : https://goo.gl/8NpHHs Honda All New Model 2018: https://goo.gl/Lr1LKt 2018 Kawasaki Model 2018: https://goo.gl/YuUZNv Custom Triumph Motocycles: https://goo.gl/mEMvU6 All New Motocycles in 2017 tokyo motor show: https://goo.gl/KziMNe All New Honda Motocycles at the Tokyo Motor Show: https://goo.gl/v8dMJJ Please subscribe to receive these channels newest video .

1948 Oldsmobile Custom When you bring up the term "lead sled" people typically start thinking of the early 50's Fords and Mercurys. Well this 1948 Oldsmobile may be a different make and slightly earlier but something about it certainly puts off that lead sled vibe. The rust free 2 door fastback body is coated in an epoxy primer and satin clear which nicely contrasts with the red steel wheels and the hint of red you see on the front emblem. These are the original wheels, hubcaps, and beauty rings which are wrapped with brand new tires. The car wears a lot of its original stainless trim as well its front and rear bumpers which have been painted. Custom pinstriping was added to the front bumper and rear deck which is a nice unique touch. The front hood ornament on the car is original and very unique as well featuring the original blue lucite accents. The drive train on the car was entirely gone through and replaced. In now consists of a 290hp GM 350 V8 motor that has around 500 miles on it. It was fitted with a slight cam, ceramic coated headers, and a custom pinstriped air cleaner. Backing the motor is a 200R4 transmission that moves through the gears with no issues. Other nice upgrades include the 75 Nova front clip, front disc brakes, coil springs with air shocks and power steering system. The car has a really cool stance with a slight rake towards the front and scoots down the road very well. The interior of the car is done in a two tone Grey ultra leather with a bench seat in front and rear. The dash features a lot of the original components including the original gauges which are working properly. A second gauge pod was added below the dash for temperature and oil pressure. In front of the driver you will find a tilt steering column topped off by a very nice woodgrain Banjo steering wheel. A Southern Rods AC system was also added to the car to keep you cruising around comfortably in that summer heat. The trunk of the car houses a spare and a custom shelf was made to increase your amount of available storage. This is one cool classic with a lot of style. In no time all of your car show buddies will be hunting around for a 48 Olds of there very own to customize. music by bensound - http://www.bensound.com/royalty-free-music/2
