GEORGE BARRIS street naming event photos!
Here's a few photos from the George Barris street naming event. The event took place March 23 at Barris Kustom City in North Hollywood, CA. A small side street next to the Barris shop was renamed George Barris Place. It was great to see Mr. Barris recognized for his sensational work in the entertainment industry! Some of the "kustom" cars that George Barris built include the 1966 TV BATMOBILE...THE MUNSTERS KOACH...THE STARSKY & HUTCH Gran Torino and he collaborated with Dean Jeffries on THE MONKEEMOBILE. That's Mr. Barris and I in this posting's top photo. Thanks! -- Patrick Owsley
