How about the vintage stock car approach? Lettering with patina, a stripped interior, and a muffler-moly rollbar are all it would take. Then again, for a '50s vibe, lose some of the trim, go with a Baby Blue paintjob, a couple acres of white tuck 'n' roll on the inside (and don't forget the tonneau cover over the rear seat with your initials and a steering wheel cover), a four- and two-split manifold with glasspacks, and a set of spinner hub caps. Finally a contemporary treatment on a classic body style-nosed and decked with a cleaned-up grille and smooth bumpers-drape it all over a new chassis with an LS engine and automatic overdrive, fill the cabin with every known convenience, then giggle when the Mercedes drivers look at you and smile.
