Default The Barry Mazza Photo Collection Part 2

A few weeks ago I had part one of the Barry Mazza Custom Car Photo Collection.

Since then Barry has bought a new scanner, and his new scans are so much better in quality...
So I figured I share a few more with you.
The complete collection can be seen on my site here:

http://public.fotki.com/Rikster/11_c...y_mazza_custom

All thanks goes out to Barry Mazza who has been so generous to share his great photo collection.



Zupan Merc...

The Moonglow... among others...




Chuck DeWitts showbox at the lakes...




A gorgeous side view of Sam Barris with his newely finished 1950 Buick.

Rikster, glad there are people like you, preserving our important automotive past. Thanks for sharing with us. I feel really lucky to have the Aztec almost in my backyard, compared to you. Despite the rainy weather, he brought it out for the Rumblers show on the 3rd. Took a ton of pictures and video. Love that car!
BTW..I think you would have liked the Kustom Dodge, with Carson top, that was there in bare metal.

P.S. thanks also for finding the pictures of "Starstruck" '63 Olds Starfire. It's my insperation for my '64 ragtop project.

THIS IS THE "CROOKED KUSTOM" FEATURED IN 1959 CUSTOM CAR ANNUAL,JUNKED DUE TO MIS ALIGNED HEADLIGHTS. HOWEVER WAS NOT JUNKED AND ...TO BAD , HAS BEEN RUSTING AWAY. HOWEVER THE HEADLIGHT WAS RE POSITIONED BUT, NEVER FIHISHED.

The car was bought new by Max "Maxamillion" King in 1940 and it was first done in 1946 by Meeker Auto Body in NJ, my father moved and a lot of pictures are packed up so I will have to go digging, we have one shot where the full race flatty is out of it sitting on a big piece of velvet. In 59 it recieved all the otjher treatments and is basicall untouched since then. This is the only other pic I have at work.

Ah, I assumed since your English is perfect that you may have spent some time in the states. Thanks for the great chop picture, I love seeing these cars as work is actually being done on them..
