FOR ALMOST 5 DECADES, JOHN D'AGOSTINO has been designing and putting together some of the Koolest Kustoms ever seen ! He's in every major Hall Of Fame, and has won hundreds of awards for his cars. John is not only an old friend, but someone who's "eye" for creating a fabulous car is one that I highly respect.
So it was at the 29th Annual KKOA Lead Sled that John, GEORGE "King Of The Kustomizers" BARRIS, and, myself got together again to talk about...what else ? KUSTOM CARS !
I wanted to find out from John what process he goes through in getting those beautiful creations from the drawing board and into "rolling sculpture".
While we were at it, George gave me his take on John's styling & visions, and this is an Interview that you'll really want to listen to more than once. If you're building any car, the ideas & principles that John follows as his guidelines will work for you too !
AGAIN, MY THANKS to my 'Cuz, John D'Agostino, and, the Legendary George Barris, for their friendship, help, and sharing of knowledge so that you can hear it right here on The Hall Of Fame Legends Series. JK
