Kings of Kustoms is planned to be a series of 13 DVDs, and if the first, featuring Gene Winfield, is anything to go by, it should be a good series. Each episode will concentrate on one artist, pioneer, or whatever you want to call them, and we can't think of a better subject to kick it off.
Winfield talks the viewer through the various segments of his 65-year career, starting by revisiting his original shop, a chicken coop in Modesto, which amazingly is still standing! In the space of 90 minutes, we see him racing his T coupe, "The Thing", at El Mirage, get an inside view at his movie cars, including the Blade Runner vehicles and the DeLorean from Back To The Future, his fade paint technique, his time working for model car company AMT, and much more.
