Also in 2004, a radically kustomized 1967 Cadillac Eldorado named the “El Conquistador” will debut. John is being honored as “Trendsetter of the Year” at the San Francisco Rod & Custom Show in January 2004. Many of John’s past and present Kustoms will be on display, including the debut of another joint venture with A&A (a chopped, channeled, and sectioned) 1955 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz convertible named “Elmerado.”
New for 2005 is a 1966 Oldsmobile “Dynamic” 88 that will be mildly kustomized by Oz’s Kustoms that was awarded the Joe Bailon Award of Elegance at this year’s Sacramento Autorama.
NEWSFLASH!!! Three (3) new kustoms debuted in January 2005 at the San Francisco Rod & Custom Show: “Elmerado” wins BIG at the show; the “Venturian,” a mildly kustomized lavender pearl 1966 Oldsmobile; and the “Venician,” a semi-kustom yellow and peach pearl 1964 Oldsmobile. All three drew a lot of attention at this prestigious show.
2006 debuted another celebrity star car, a tribute to “Elvis,” the World’s First $1,000,000 Kustom by D’Agostino, a 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Seville Cabriolet, made into a chopped (3″) full, 3/4 top, or convertible concept kustom. This kustom is a tribute to Elvis Presley’s love for Cadillacs and the American automobile. This is D’Agostino’s 1st Signature Series with his gold inlaid diamond studded badges.
NEWSFLASH!!! “Elvis” made a big hit at its debut showing at the San Francisco Rod & Custom Show and The Grand National Roadster Show. Look for lots of television coverage throughout 2006. Also, Barris / D’Agostino will be touring Sweden and Finland starting in April 2006. See “Elvis” on display at the Petersen Museum in Los Angeles throughout 2008.
