does anybody know what is gonna happen to his museum?
Just thought Id bring this back up,still bummed by the news..........hope someone can save his history and collection of stuff.....
you want to see something pathetic, go to kustom kulture forum. they only have two page on this topic and it seemed like 3/4 didn't even know who Larry was. and here they are making money off what he pioneered.
Very sad. RIP Larry.
I am still amazed every time I look at what he did.
So sad by this news..
Like on previous posts I think it would be a nice to send Larry out in style. Anyone who is attending the services lets try to get as many rides there as possible.
Also just wanted to throw it out there..The Elks lodge close by in Huntington Beach has offered there lodge to any HAMB members who would like to get together for a informal gathering for Larry. Drinks are very reasonable and there is lots of parking. Please PM me if anyone has ?'s
So sad to hear. I just heard. I've been working and out of touch with the rest of the normal world. May he rest in peace. I'm going to go and flip through some of those great Rodder's Journal articles on him.
Well, was Larry tatted out??
nothing to do with tats. its a site from kustom painting to air brush work. call kustom kulture lounge.com
Larry Watson painted my first dragster in 1964. Very talented guy. RIP.
En paz descanse...
what???!!!...does that even matter?...what a stupid question..
exactly thats all they care about is looking cool with tats and all those rockabilly accessories why would they know a true legend like him?
yeah Larry was no follower or wanna-be. he was the one that they wanted to be
one of the greats!! RIP Larry
we will miss him
It's good to see that this thread continues to pop back up to the top. It is obvious how profound his influence was on all things in the motorcycle and automotive world.
Very fitting, love the chrome tape
Boy, just when I was starting to feel a little better about Larry, this one got to me.
It is very beautiful. Larry is missed....................E
Going out in style total cool,woulda expected nothing less.......respects to those who did the work..........
That is amazing! I am sure his family and close friends will be touched.
RIP Larry...one of my heroes...still havin clearly in mind a Watson scalloped tribute car..
Its in good hands and all his stuff will be well taken care of! no need to worry!
Larry gave the museum to me, while at the city of hope. I've been scanning photos for a while. We were going to film the museum ,a shot of Larry pointing to the picture, then while he talked about it we would go to the scaned photo. But that can't happen now. After the funeral I will talk to his son to see, when it needs to be moved, while I try to find a correct location for it. The last thing Larry had me do was to take pictures of how he located them, to keep them as he wanted them. Roger
thats great Roger, glad to see everything will not be put back into boxes or even worse sold. be sure and let the word out when it is open so more people can come and see just how much this man did and meant to the kustom car community.
John.Any chance of a LW memorial shirt??? again maybe funds can go to cancer or to help with the collection~~~ thanks
Its not up to me but I can ask someone that can make that decision!
