30 YEARS OF EXCELLENCE PUTS THE CUSTOM SHOP ON TOP!
John Wargo started The Custom Shop straight out of high school in 1988 and had never dreamed the shop would be as amazing as it is!
The Custom Shop works tirelessly to make sure that each ride they build is as amazing as the one before. Over the past 30 years the custom shop has been featured in 386 magazines, with over 68 magazine covers, been on V8TV, Won Grand Champion on ISCA Show Tour, Won Lowrider of the Year, Street Truck of the Year, Mini Truck of the year, Slamology Best of Show 6 times, and much more.
With this being the shops 30th anniversary, they are putting their best foot forward at the upcoming SEMA show. Owner John Wargo’s son, Brandon Wargo, has been working at The Custom Shop for a few years. For SEMA 2018 he is now building his own vehicle which was chosen to compete in the 2018 SEMA Battle of the Builders. Wargo’s custom Datsun 2ATZx can be seen in the Sony Booth (12053) and will feature a huge list of mods including: wide body and custom paint, 2015 ATS 2.0 Turbo, custom ground effects, full custom interior with Cadillac dash, full Sony audio system, and much more.
Brandon’s years of watching his father, John, build show stoppers and competing for the Battle of Builders drew the interest of many SEMA manufactures. Just one look at this list and it shows how serious Brandon is about following his fathers footsteps:
