  1. I would doubt if there’s any custom car guy out there that doesn’t love the “Moonglow” in the lowered and in white stage. The “Moonglow” is by far one of the best customs ever created. For a guy working at home Duane hit on the perfect custom. For me this is the #1 old school custom ever created, everything about this custom is, oh so right..


    • yes cruiser the car looked good in white, but when watson painted the car in candy blue it really kicked butt, many cool cars around those days stecks was one of them, i remember one sat afternoon cruzin like i allways did , stopped by watsons shop some people were taking photos of models on the moonglow when it was candy blue, about four years ago before watson passed away , we got to talking about the old days i asked him about that day he did not remember, he asked me if i had any photos of that day no i said i never carried a camera, you know there was only one moonglow the original period,


  2. It’s sad to here that a guy with such talent could loose interest in customs.
