You didn’t think we would ignore the customs as we present our Lamley Awards for 2013, did you?
2013 saw our customs coverage skyrocket here at Lamley. As is the Custom is one of our most popular features, and our Custom Contests were also closely followed. We have also seen the work coming in get better and better. There were certain models that customizers loved, most notably the Kool Kombi, ’55 Gasser, ’70 Celica, Datsun 620, and Civic EF.
So for this week’s As is the Custom, we went back and looked at all of the customs we featured in 2013, and picked out a few of our favorites. This doesn’t mean these are the customs we think are the best of 2013, as getting into our weekly feature is not easy, these are just some that we took special notice of during the year.
Some are elaborately done, involving tremendous skill. Some are very small tweaks that improve the look of the model. Some are the subject of fantastic photography. What they all have in common is that we are big fans of each of these.
So sit back and enjoy, and we will get back to the current customs next week…
We will start with what we would call our Custom of the Year if we have that award out. It would go to Daniel Hew’s BMW E30 M3 that won the first Custom Contest earlier this year. Honorable mention would go to Ernest Li’s Lamborghini Veneno and dragstueck’s Kool Kombi Truck carrying mini Hot Wheels cases…
