Memories - Page 5

The car was originally donated over 20 years ago to the West Coast Kustoms from long time Kustom enthusiast Gary Minor. The original concept for the car was to be a club project car, but as time went by the car bounced around to different shops making little progress. Unfortunately, with the progression of Rich’s disease he was unable to finish the build. The build is being completed by some of the most talented craftsmen there are in Kustomizing: Keith Dean, Rick Dore, Bill Hines, Sam Foose, and Daryl Hollenbeck are some just some of the talent involved in this project. The car will also use the best parts donated by top Automotive Aftermarket parts manufacturers and suppliers in the industry. When completed, “Memories” will then begin it’s tour of indoor/outdoor car shows across the country, bringing awareness of the debilitating disease of Alzheimer’s and raising donations for the project. This “One of a Kind” 54 Merc will be auctioned to the highest bidder at the Barrett Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, AZ. All proceeds from the auction and donations will go directly to the Alzheimer’s Association ( for research and daily care giving to those still battling this disease.
