Character Cars At Pumpkin Patch

Character Cars At Pumpkin Patch

Here at Dave's Pumpkin Patch in West Sacramento good 'ol Disney rolled out some of their custom built cars toshow off. I don't really know much about them so when I asked one of the haulers who built them he said "Disney." I was really curious and wanted to know because I dabble in kustom cars. I then asked of they actually built them on the lot and he didn't know. Any-hoo these things looked well built and I'm guessing that they're built by some bigshot builder in L.A. I briefly looked online to see if I could figure it out but I couldn't take the time to pore through all the mire. If anyone knows let me in on it.
