Danny Kazarian's 1937 Chevrolet of Paramount, California was restyled by Masterson Kustoms, and completed in 2008. It was restyled to resemble a mild 1940s custom.
Brad Masterson's 1951 Chevrolet Fleetline, of Lynwood, California was completed in 2007.
George Garcia's 1958 Ford Ranchero of Bellflower, California. George's Ranchero was built as a tribute to Richard Lee Tiago's 1957 Ford Ranchero, according to him the best custom Ranchero ever built. Brad chopped the top on the car and made a rolled pan for it along with some other modifications. The build was completed in 2018.

Masterson Kustom Automobiles is a custom shop run by Brad Masterson out of the old Dean Jeffries' shop at 11070 Atlantic Ave, located next door to the old Barris premises at 11054 Atlantic Ave in Lynwood, California. He is born and raised in Sacramento, but pursued his way to Los Angeles to work for George Barris. Brad wanted to learn the art of leading, and working like they did in the 1940s and 1950s, but George did not work with those method no longer, so he sent Brad of to the famous Leadslinger, Bill Hines down in Long Beach. Eventually in 2007, he opened up his own shop in Dean Jeffries old shop, next to the Barris Kustoms. He turned the front part of the premises into a museum, while the backyard is being used for building traditional kustom cars.[1]
