Lincoln 1961 - 67 customs & mild customs

Message  Predicta le Sam 15 Déc - 11:07

John D'Agostino is a big car guy! Okay, that's correct, but we're also talking really BIG cars here, mostly Cadillacs and Lincolns. Now, most of John's heavy metal efforts have been confined to cars of the '50s, but when he came across this low-mileage '67 Continental coupe, its potential was realized immediately, and he just couldn't resist. As the Lincoln is now some 35 model years old, it isn't exactly a new vehicle, but in the world of traditional kustomizing where John resides it's probably pushing the envelope quite a but with such a "late model."



But what is customizing (we'll use a "C" here for the hobby overall) if not pushing an envelope of some sort? It sure as heck isn't historic restoration-not by a long shot! Creating new, yet comfortably familiar shapes from production automobiles has been an obsession for many since the birth of such contraptions in the late 19th Century. Yes, we're officially in the automobile's third century of existence-pretty incredible when you think about it. Some, including John, feel we've possibly gone just a bit too far, at least if our roots are based in the traditions set down by pioneers in our hobby. Thankfully for men like John, many of those pioneers are still practicing their craft; men like Gene Winfield and Frank DeRosa, and young apostles of the craft too, like Oz, are coming along to fill in the gaps left by those who have gone on to that big kustom shop in the sky.



With John's plan of attack, adding the aforementioned body building skills of Oz's Kustoms and DeRosa and Son, with able assistance of such skilled practitioners of the art as craftsman Greg Westbury, and Gene Winfield's world renowned talent for applying blended paint jobs, and you've got a winning team, creating a '67 Connie like no other!

Lincoln 1961 - 64 customs & mild customs

Message  Predicta le Sam 20 Avr - 21:58


It’s a great story. Born in 1947, Ken Godfrey headed off to school each day, clutching his lunch money. He never bought lunch however, preferring to save the week’s worth until Friday afternoons, when he would stop by the local newsagency on his way home. That lunch money bought more than just sandwiches. It bought the 14 year old his dream world; hot rod and custom magazines. Not content
with simply flipping through the pages, Ken began drawing his own versions of the machines before him..


Ken went on to create some of Australia’s coolest customs, including this ’63 Lincoln Continental.
