BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - A hybrid Ford wagon was turning heads at Wednesday's block party in Biloxi.
Steve Keller, a cruiser from Maryland, drives his antique Ford nearly 1,100 miles to Cruisin' the Coast. The vehicle is pieced together from six different classic cars.
"It's a 1956 Ford Parklane Wagon," said Keller. "I took the roof and windshield off the wagon and put on the front half of a '55 Crown Victoria roof, windshield and door. The back cab panel is out of a '64 Ford pickup truck. To change the angle of the panel is the upper portion of a '59 Ford quarter panel turned upside down. The side rails are stainless steel off of a '57 Ranchero."
Keller enjoys showing the wagon's admirers a photo album he compiled to chronicle the vehicle's transformation from its original appearance to its current look.
"I've driven it down here twice," he said. "And I enjoy it."
