1957 Ford Fairlane owned by San Jose Rod and Wheelers member Jerry DeVito of San Jose, California. Jerry bought the car brand new in 1957, and it didn't take long time before he decided to have it customized. The stock color was black.[1] The first version of Jerry's Fairlane was restyled by Bill Babb and J.R. Wirth at Wirth's Body Shop in Campbell, California. Jerry was responsible for the overall design. The first version was very mild, featuring an accessory type grille with wider tubular bars and a guardless front bumper. Unnecessary chrome had been removed, and the body was nosed, decked and shaved for door-handles. The shaved hood was fit with two Buick portholes, four rows of louvers, and an airscoop that was cut into a beaked "V" shape. California Custom "Satel-Lites" taillights, featuring two red lenses and two chrome bullets replaced the stock taillights. Once the body work was done, the car was given a Lime Green paint job. Extreme lowness was achieved through the use of lowering blocks at the rear, and by reworking the spindles up front. The car was then dressed up featuring dual spotlights, lakes pipes, Edsel hubcaps[2], and a bright white rolled and pleated Naugahyde upholstery by Burns Upholstery in San Jose.[3] The seats, door panels, kick panels and dashboard were all done in a vertical pattern with contrasting black beading. Front and rear seats were cut down. A custom steering wheel cover carried the San Jose Rod and Wheelers club emblem. After the car was finished by Wirth's Body Shop, Joe Crisafulli of J & J Auto Painting in San Jose gave the car a wild scallop paint job. Joe was also a member of the San Jose Rod and Wheelers. The scallops were painted in various shades of green, and outlined in silver. The build was completed later on in 1957, and Jerry won many awards with his brand custom. This version of Jerry's Fairlane gained national recognition when it was featured in Car Craft February 1959.[2]

After winning nearly everything with the first version of the Maze, Jerry decided to redo the body and paint for the 1958 season. The second version, also designed by Jerry, featured frenched headlights that were trimmed with unusual bird-like beads. The rear fins were extended and received a similar styling. Six more air scoops were added. Two Impala-type scoops with beaked edges were grafted onto the roof, while four scoops were added to the rear fenders. Two of the scoops were slots cut in the side of the fenders, near the taillights, for illumination from the side. The taillights were tunneled 6 inches, and the Satel-Lite lenses were replaced with stock lenses. On this version, the Edsel hubcaps were replaced with more modern chromed and reversed wheels. According to the caption in Custom Rodder March 1959, only the front of Jerry's Ford was lowered. The low look in the rear was enhanced by the full length lakes pipes.

The second version of the Maze became an even bigger hit at the shows, and after winning everything with this version of the car as well, Jerry decided to redo the car for the 1959 season. The third version of the Maze, also designed by Jerry, was restyled by Gene's Body Shop of San Jose. This version featured a new unique contoured front end that incorporated quad headlights. The upper headlights were recessed 10 inches in the fender. The front bumper was removed and a roll pan was made sporting a recessed license plate. The molded grille cavity featured a grille made out of two ribbed exhaust tubes. The hood was cleaned up, and gone were the Buick portholes, louvers and beaked scoop. The rear bumper was removed as well, and a rolled pan was molded in and a pair of nerf bars were added. The exhaust was routed through the rear pan. The reversed chrome wheels were replaced by Dodge hubcaps and the wild paint job was exchanged with a gold laquer.[7] According to Custom Cars August 1960, that ran a featured story on the third version of the Maze, this version of the car was lowered by chopping the A frame up front, and by C'ing the rear frame. The featured story in Custom Cars Magazine featured photos by George Barris.[3] In 1960, Jerry's club, the San Jose Rod and Wheelers, won the Car Craft Car Club of the Year award. The club was presented as the winner in Car Craft January 1960, and Jerry's Ford was shown amongst the club cars. At the time, the car had just received a facelift by Gene Carvalho, but it still retained the wild Maze paint job. The partly restyled front end featured six headlights.[8] According to Bob Heinrichs, the motor caught on fire and did some damage to the front end of the car. "Jerry used this as his opportunity to make some improvements and he added more headlights. Someone else repainted the hood and front fenders. Jerry has always been a fun guy. You never knew what he was going to do next."[4]

Jerry sold the Maze in 1960, and he never saw it again. Before selling the car, Jerry had big plans for a chopped and carson topped roof, a channeling and maybe even a sectioning. Jerry went on to work for George Barris, and he was part of the team building the Munster Koach and the Batmobile. He worked for George for about 3 years.[1]

Rod Powell saw the car at an indoor car show. By then it had been painted Candy Maroon. Rod believes the Gold paint job had been used as base for the Maroon Candy paint.[9]

In April of 1979 Jerry's old custom was featured in Grease Machines, a book by the editors of Cosnumer Guide. The story was titled as the "Flamboyant Fairlane". In 2012 Jerry told Kustomrama that the second version of the car was his favorite.
