Legendary Kustomizer George Barris was a true original who lived life on his terms. Several folks will remember his one of a kind creations like the infamous Batmobile of the 1960s television series Batman, Munster Coffin Cars and Drag-Ula, not to mention scores of insane four wheels, and hovering vehicles-turned-hot rods into motoring artful master pieces. Grease monkey fabricators like Barris, Ed “Big Daddy” Roth and Von Dutch inspired several generations of Lowbrow artists like Coop, Robert Williams, the Pizz and more. Plus, they made watching those stupid-fun television shows of our youth more outrageous than ever. “Rev In Peace”, George Barris.
