Default Custom Car Photos from the Barry Mazza Collection

Barry Mazza - we all know him from the Herb Ogden/Pisana brothers 1941 Buick convertible restoration and the Barris Built Aztec restoration - has been so kind to share a large portion of his huge custom car photo collection with me. To be used on my Custom Car Photo Archive site. Well I created that site to share custom car photo's, and what better place to share this great collection of very unique custom car photo's from Barry's collection then here on the HAMB.

I hope you all enjoy these as much as I do.
There are to many to post them all here, but at the end of the post there is a link to all Barry Mazza's albums on my site.

Thanks goes out to Barry Mazza for sharing these great custom car photo's

George Cerny's shop truck in front of his shop




Lyle Lake with his just finished Barris custom




Unique photo of Sam Barris with his 1950 Buick. Looks like Sam just spotted a slight wafe in the rear fender...






Thats Barry on the left chopping a 41 Mercury




End result... could have rolled out of the Barris shop just as easy...




Sam Barris 1949 Mercury... notice the Lincoln Pushbuttons in the door...



And here the Merc with rounded hood corners








Snooky Janish 1941 Ford in its first smooth version.





Buddy Alcorn with two tone paint at the Barris shop




Before it was restored




A few refelections... but still very intersting to see another color photo of Chuck DeWitt's Showbox








Jerry Quesnel's 1949 Mercury with fresh unfinished chop



Bill DeCarr's 1941 Mercury he built for him self in the late 40's early 50's. Now the car is channeled and the removed several inches from the botom ...




Herb Ogden Barris/Pisano brothers build 1941 Buick convertible... what a color...



And Bill's Aztec as he found it....




More photo's of the Barry Mazza custom car collection can be seen here:

Another custom car Barry built was a 1950 Mercury inspired by the Ayala/Barris Bettancourt Mercury.
It was not ment to clone the car... so there are many details that are different like the flush skirts, extended hood, Buick side trim above the 52 Ford front wheel lips.










The car has been sold several times... and somehow stories got mixed up and now it is known as a real Barris custom. Anybody has some recent photo's of it after this restoration?

Isn't Cerny's wagon being restored as we speak? Seems to me I read his kids tracked it down and are restoring it.

One very interesting that even Rikster might not have niticed is the Harry Bradley designed scoops that went around the Lincoln buttons in the doors. This is when Harry was hangin around the Drivib Deuces which Tommy Lee was a member of. I grew up seeing these pics at barrys house back when we lived up north. I havent looked at them since I was 12
