I got a chance to visit Moal Coachbuilders today. Low and behold their superstar car, the Gatto was there in living color. The Gatto reminded me of the first time I saw Van Gogh’s Starry Night in person. Up close, Starry Night is anti-flat – full of painterly peaks and valleys. A photo simply cannot do it justice. And so it is with the Gatto – all curves and angles – deserving of an in person inspection to get its full impact.
About the Moal Field Trip:
I’ve been dying to do a story on Moal for quite awhile and this was my first trip out to do some homework for an upcoming story and photo shoot. Got to meet the guys: Steve, Mike, David and Alberto. Besides being gracious hosts, they told me a bit of their rich history and creative process. The shop is an Oakland treasure and a custom coachcraft legend. Look for this story soon here at Megadeluxe.
