Counts Customs

Post by Caprifan Rob » Sun Jul 14, 2019 1:14 am

I know there are some fans of the show on here, so thought I’d post up some pictures. Currently in Vegas for my sons wedding, now that the big day is over, we had to pay a visit to the counts garage/museum. Took a few pictures so for those that know the show, you’ll recognise most of the cars.
Entrance first, complete with burnouts;

Was blown away to be honest by the quality of the custom bikes & cars, even if it’s not your thing you can see the hard work & appreciate the paint work. Noice friendly staff too.
Cheers, Rob

Hi Rob,
Congratulations on the wedding of your boy, you must be very proud.

Funnily enough I'm watching Counting Cars right this minute!
The cars in Danny's collection look very interesting and varied. It's good to know that the workmanship is as good in person as it looks on the TV.

Andrew.

Hi Rob

Congratulations on your son's wedding.

Great idea calling into The Count's museum; love the Caddy and Chevy? Gasser? but all look incredible.

Have a great trip.

Was properly impressed with how they made the cars look & the custom paintwork was amazing up close, very talented painters.

Cheers Nige, Count’s & wedding was brilliant experience.
As we were on a car guys mission, I’d heard that you could drive & see where they filmed the Fast & Furious house where Vin Diesel as Toretto lived & the sandwich bar he was supposed to have run in the first film (which is a small corner shop in the same street). So we hired a car & did a marathon 700 mile round trip to Echo Park in LA to find it.
Apparently it’s a magnet for fans of the film and this Viper wrapped like the Supra in the film turned up as we did, great photo opportunity.
He’ll of a drive though ..

700 miles! Nice one Rob; glad you found the landmarks. Great photos and instantly recognisable.
