MIGHTY MERC

Hard to beat – Wasyl Rosati’s black beauty was awarded a host of accolades including Top Custom, Top Car of Show and the massive Austin Arrowsmith Elegance Award. The most anticipated unveil of the weekend revealed his incredible interpretation of an iconic custom 1950 Mercury dubbed ‘Black Diamond’. Painted by world renowned refinishing master Charley Hutton, the supercharged 572 Keith Black Hemi boasts around 2,000 horsepower, delivered to the asphalt through an Art Morrison chassis and custom wheels whittled by Curtis Speed.
