Mark Wojick is an East Coast custom builder. Legendary East Coast customizer John Paszik of S & J Auto Styling taught Mark to do custom bodywork and paint. John started to work for John in 1979. At the time, Mark was a youngster with a 1957 Chevrolet convertible. He wanted to learn how to fix it up. He had learned a lot of mechanical work from the local hot rodders, but he wanted to learn how to do up the body real nice and paint it. John was the best guy around, so Mark went to work for him, just helping and sweeping after school. Little by little John taught Mark how to braze and do custom bodywork. John also taught him the black arts of custom painting, flames, candy paint, pearls and so on. Mark worked for John for about 10 years.[1]
