Upon arriving to the REVREV Revival and getting sorted out I knew that as the “On-line” Winner I would have the pleasure of giving out the Hooligan’s Car Club Award – Hot Legs to my favourite pick.
This for me was going to be the challenge of the day, not because I was going to have to decide on my favourite ride rather going a step further to talk to the car owner and learn more to better appreciate the story behind the wheels.
I set off with my note book in hand, picked a direction and started my research.
I had a couple of picks;
Bev and Wayne Armstrong
Dan and Rachel
1959 Buick Le Sabre
1957 Morris Minor
Gary Cooper 1952 Cheifton
1951 Custom Mercury
At the end I decided on Dave Bordman’s 51 Mercury as we had a really great conversation, I really appreciated how he recanted the story of the build and how he and his wife like to do many long distance cruises in this car.
I am a fan of the big Custom cruisers and the look of flat black, I am not always drawn to the obvious when looking at a vehicle and there were a lot of little details that won me over.
