REMEMBER “BIG DADDY” Vini Bergman and the Kustomizers — the famous team from California, which has been “kustomizing” everything on Astro’s Discovery Channel?
The team is now in the country for the first time to the delight of all modified car owners out there.
The big guy has arrived with his crew — stunt driver Jacqueline Landa, mechanic
Jasmine Hernandez, Mike A.Prisco aka Wax Daddy and Roy Benton, for the International Xtreme Autoshow to be held at Stadium Putra Bukit Jalil from Dec 26-28.
The search never ends for the crew as
once again the hunt is on as they go
customising everything from Jetboard Igniter to a Russian Military Helicopter that drives to German Hotrods and injecting classic cars with a new life.
The team had restored, chopped, cut and reengineered everything from the engine‘s suspension right down to the carefully selected trimmings.
A Jet car “melt down show” where
the exhaust flame burns a whole car, a double headed mini cooper, Bangkok Hotwheels and Jakarta Monster are some of Big Daddy’s
special features during the two-hour
“We “kustomize” anything. It is the biggest ever autoshow gathering of extreme modifications from all over the world.
“A double-headed mini cooper, a 28ft-long twin head machine with Jacuzzi and which drives sideways are some of the many attractions.
“So look out for the crazy shenanigans and the crazy things that we do,’’ said Big Daddy during a press conference at the Palace of the Golden Horses in Seri Kembangan recently.
There would also be a special appearance and autograph signing of the cast of the hit TV series.
