GEORGE BARRIS..........1925 - 2015
What American male from five to 105 doesn't know of George Barris, the Kustom King. When we were all young he was neck deep into custom cars. Setting the trend that would last for years. He built cars for the stars, cars for the movies, cars for the other rich and famous. I didn't always like his stuff, but he sure knew how to make money at it. He created the Batmobile for Batman, the Munster car for The Munster's and the car used by the Beverly Hillbillies. His cars are bringing top dollar in the auction circuit with the Batmobile being sold for $4,200,000 recently. Thats not chicken feed.
