Future Hot Rod
Can’t tell by the writing on the border if this photo was taken in July of 1952 or 1953. Sometimes I see a “3” and other times a “2” and does it matter? The real question here is, did this woman actually climb out of the trunk for this photograph?
The car (with the pricey woman in the trunk option) is a 1951 Mercury and some of the finest custom cars ever built began their lives as just such a vehicle.
