Baseball has Babe Ruth, basketball has Michael Jordan, the custom car world has George Barris.
Appropriately known worldwide as the "King of the Kustomizers," George Barris made a huge impact on the custom car scene. Whether it was the Hirohata Merc, The Ala Kart, The Batmobile, The Munster Koach or even model cars if you are into custom cars you were influenced by Barris.
It is hard to believe we will not see George in his signature gold jacket, and big smile at car show throughout California anymore.
Thank you for all you have done sir, you will be missed.
