From Kustomrama
Jump to: navigation, search

Mel Pinoli was a painter from San Leandro, California. Mel ran his own body and paint shop called Pinoli's Body and Paint Shop out of a one-stall shop situated behind a family-owned gas station.[1] When Pinoli painted a car for you, that was your color for a year, and he wouldn't paint any other car your color for one year. At the end of the year if you wanted to keep your color exclusively yours you had to pay him for another paint job whether you needed it or not.[2]
