1958 Lincoln Premier restyled by Gambino Kustoms for Beatniks member Dave Hitch. Dave bought the car from his friend Dave Dalli. Dave wasn't too keen about the car in the beginning, but knew that with an Alex Gambino Panel Paint job the car would look bad ass. The car arrived at the Gambino Kustom shop for a restyling on the same day that the legendary car painter Larry Watson passed away, so as fate would have it Alex Gambino and Dave Hitch decided to turn the Lincoln into a Larry Watson tribute creation featuring a simple but bad ass 1960s show car look.[1]

The build started in August 2010 by stripping the car for its bumpers, chrome and other unwanted chrome, before all traces of old paint were removed.
