John ‘Chopper’ Katsanis was arguably one of the biggest legends in the Aussie custom scene. Sadly he passed away in 2011, but his spirit and passion lives on through his sons, and the shop that bears his name – John’s Rod and Custom.
One of the cars the he started work on was this FJ Holden. If it looks familiar, you might have seen it at the Victorian Hot Rod Show or when it was featured in bare metal in Street Machine a few years back. The good news is she’s been dragged out, the cobwebs dusted off, and the boys have started work on her again. Between the rails is a Poncho engine sporting a healthy 421 cubes and injection, and the body mods are too many to mention, but you can see she’s not so humpy any more. I’m really looking forward to seeing this truly special car finished off. A special thanks to Carps for letting us share his pics.
