    Copied from FB... One of the greatest full customs to come out of the late 1960s. This 1966 Pontiac Bonneville was built by the talented Tom Chafin and survives today in original condition. A truly important historical custom. Thanks to Johnpaul Oates for making these images possible.

  5. I love John D's Marilyn. I always looked forward to the build updates in Custom Rodder.

    Oh the memories. It was kool to get an update every two months. Lol! The 80s & early 90's Custom Rodder magazines were a good read.
     
  7. They are what got me into customs (the 90's issues at least). Seeing what the ACME and Lucky 7 shops were doing every issues was a highlight for me.

    A regrettable (and completely avoidable) decision.
