Went for a bit of a loose movie nod with one of mine - it's one of those films that always seems to be on around Christmas and New Year, so I thought it a fitting inspiration for a holiday season gift:

Grease?


Yup! 'Hell's Chariot' - obviously you can't do an exact replica (no tyre slashers, no convertible option, different flame decals), but it's one of the most notable Mercs in film, and it gave me a nice excuse to go for a more customised look, compared to my Barris-style one:

The Albany Hermes was never the car it is today. It was born as just any other unassuming, post-war car for the returning G.I. Joe. But like the Vapid Hustler and the Declasse Tornado, the Hermes was chosen as the canvas for a new style of workmanship and personal expression. Soon, gone were the mild-mannered chrome accents and simple, bubbly lines, replaced with flame paint jobs inspired by falling Nokota fighters and swooping, hard-edged chopped tops copied straight out of an aerodynamics "how-to" book. The Hermes, true to its name, became the winged messenger of the then-blooming hot rod culture, and has stunned and entranced gearheads and grease monkeys for all time since.

 

This was never a car that existed on Albany's drawing boards back in 1948, but here it is. As real as gastric distress after Burger Shot and with more work done to it than the girls down at the Vanilla Unicorn. An unimaginable fusion of aviation and wartime grit injected straight into post-war America. It's beautiful, it's shocking, and most importantly, it can be all yours.

So Jay Leno had a blue Hudson Hornet with the Fabulous Hudson Hornet livery, red wheels & everything on his show last night & now I'm tempted to revert back to the Amazing Albany livery .... Just when I'm finally happy with mine, thanks a lot Jay!

The brakes are actually not bad at all. Go take a spin in a fully modded regular Slamvan, those are bad.

      So most of my cars are fairly tame, even my Voodoo custom isn't particularly wild. And for the longest time, neither was my Hermes. Candy red is far from a muted color, sure, and those heavy chrome bumpers could blind from a block away, but it didn't wear any liveries. It appeared rather tame, really. 

 

It was time to change that.

       One repaint and a livery later, we have
