1940 Mercury Romango

 

After World War II, custom cars became the rage. This car was built in 1951 in Detroit, Michigan, by Richard Reaume and was a star at the first Detroit Autorama in 1953. Show cars 'needed' names at the time, and this name is a contraction of "Roman Dago," a well-known '50s race horse. Restored in 2005, "Romango" earned an invitation that year to the first-ever early custom car class at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, fitting recognition of its significance in custom car history.
