He cut up his wife's 1949 Buick with one directive: "Don't make it look stupid." Sectioned, chopped and pancaked, the Buick E-Job, crowned 2023 Custom of the Year and winner of multiple show awards, is nothing short of rolling art, a masterpiece in metal hand-crafted over six and a half years in his spare time. Cody Walls brings his traditional kustom with its 408 Buick Nailhead V8 to the SEMA Show in Las Vegas then meets up with Nicole to explain the details of the stunning show car and cruise the sleek sled across the desert.

He built his first custom at 15—a '64 Chevy Impala—then went on to earn a scholarship to WyoTech where he specialized in rod and custom fabrication. Since then he's worked as a freelance fabricator for some of the East Coast's top hot rod and custom shops, earning a reputation as the go-to fabricator for complex metalshaping.
