John D’Agostino has built so many beautiful Kustom Kars that it is nearly impossible to pick a favorite. Most of them wear his unmistakable candy blended paint, and seemingly impossible smoothness. You can stare at his cars for hours wondering what exactly he has changed with each one, but it is nearly impossible to detect. In my mind, that is what separates the good customs from from great customs. When he completes a car, the car is no longer just a car, it really become a rolling work of art.
This 1941 Packard, known as “Gable”, is one of my favorites because….. well … look at it. If this Packard were to be parked next to a new Ferrari and Bugatti, the Ferrari would immediately burst into flames, and the Bugatti would drive itself into a lake. They would both feel too inadequate parked next to such burgundy brilliance. This Packard has the perfect stance, flawless paint that is as rich as rich gets, and nearly undetectable customization. There is just no denying it, I would look good in this car.
