1949 Mercury Convertible owned by Gary Niemie. Gary, who was a member of the Long Beach Renegades had Bill Hines restyle the car for him. Dick Dean started the build, and Bill Hines completed it. Cypress Auto Body & Paint painted the car circa 2002 - 2003. Dave Whittle pinstriped it, and it was upholstered by Gabe House of Trim.

In 2018 Dave Abell bought the Merc out of a collection on the East Coast. It had changed hands several times by then since Gary first sold it.
