John Wargo - The Custom Shop
John Wargo had a vision over 29 years ago; (after working on cars throughout high school) some day he would open a shop and build custom cars for a living. He knew that it would be a tough road to make it work in the small town of Flanagan, but he loved the small town life. After he graduated high school, he got a night shift job printing magazines at a local printing company. Then he went out and got a loan to buy a closed down Dodge dealership that had been sitting empty in Flanagan for a few years. With the help of his parents they cleaned up the old shop repainted it and open The Custom Shop in 1988.
For the next 8 years John was working at the shop during the day and full time at night to get the shop off the ground. Finally, after all of the hard work the shop had finally taken off and was making a little money. So he quit his night job and went hard core, putting The Custom Shop and Flanagan on the map. He didn"t do it alone he hired a few guys to expand the shop skill level and ablilities, so Richard Llyod, Jon Millirons, Dennis Sullivan were added to the team. When they get really busy on projects we call in a few freinds as part time help Dan Hoerner, Bill Manker, Alex Betts.
