Wall Custom Cars
Wall Custom Cars was a custom car dealership in South Gate, California owned and operated by Forey Wall and his brother Glen Wall. Forey started buying and selling cars in 1945 through is own business Forey Wall Used Cars at 10729 Long Beach Blvd,in Lynwood. Ten years later, in 1955, Forey opened up Wall Custom Cars with his brother Glen at 3900 E. Firestone Blvd., Dept. M, in South Gate, California. By 1959 Forey and Glen marketed their business as the "World's Largest Custom Car Dealer", paying top prices for custom cars. As pinstriping became an attraction in every used-car dealership on Firestone Boulevard, Glen and Forey began offering pinstriping as a regular option. Ed "Big Daddy" Roth was one of the pinstripes that used to stripe at Wall Custom Cars.
Both Forey and Glen collected cars as well. In 1963 Forey expanded the business by purchasing Nick Pastor Imports on Firestone Blvd. i Southgate. After running Nick Pastor Imports for a couple of years he sold it in 1965. Forey and Glen continued through 1966 when they lost their lease on Firestone. After loosing the lease they moved their business to the Bellflower on Alondra Blvd. In 2012 Forey told Kustomrama that the new location was not as good as the location in South Gate, and the business never did as well as it used to.
