    1. Kustom Painters

    This car is my old boss's car! John Pazsik .
    History!!!!!!!
    He bought it in 57, when he was a teenage. Had local body guy supreme, Spike, ownernow of Ed's autobody in Union NJ, do the custom work on it, learnign to do it himself as well. Had it painted by Jersey Great, Tony Bruskavage, in a custom mix of green pearl. Later, John Pazsik went to work for Leo, of Superior Interiors, and had him do the interior as well.
    The car went on to do the indoor car show circuit in the late 50's early 60's. Won just about every trophy you could in all the big East Coast shows.
    John owned the car many uears, keeping it in the same condition, although somewhere along the line he was trailering it up to the Hartford Conn. show, and had it covered. The cover beat up the paint job, so John redid some of it, adding pearl white scallops.
    John still owned the car whenI went to work for him in '79. Over the years, he ran into personal, and business problems. Wound up selling the car a couple times, buying it back, but eventually losing it.
    I was fortunate enough to have worked on it for one of the later owners, who took off the "Shore Calender" mags wheels, and double pin whites, wanted to put a set of skirts back on it, along with wide whites, and 57 Caddys. I spent a lot of time making a paint that matched the old green pearl job.
    Eventually, Tico Torres, of Bon Jovi fame would up owning it. He didn't drive it much, bascially stored it in an airplane hanger with his plane.
    When Tico finally got bored with it, the work got out to Bob Barkoff, a friend of John's, and a great, talented builder of customs in his own right.
    Bobby did a partial restoration of the car, while adding his own touches, such as putting a 55 Pontiac rear bumper on it, to match the front, putting molded lakes pipes on it, putting a scoop in the front fender, adding air bags. He rebuilt the original motor and trans, suspension, brakes. He kept the original Superior Interior, which still looks great. He painted it the burnt copper color you see on it now.
    The car looks fantastic, though I have to admit, I would have kept it the way it was!
    BTW, John's nephew is a member of the HAMB, as well, Unionville Haunt.
    Sadly John has been in a nursing home for a few years, deteriorating slowly. Bobby is going to bring the car up to visit him next week!!!!!
