    These are some of the pictures I own of Hershel JR Conway's Shoebox from the 1950's.. These have never been seen before IMG_20181231_162145.jpg IMG_20181231_162153.jpg Here is a color transparency of Golden Sahara IMG_20181231_160848.jpg This is a picture of a young Bill Hines doing some file work when he worked for George Barris. The Kustom is Shirley's Bird. MVIMG_20181231_161700.jpg A few contact sheet cut out photos of Sam Barris working his magic. IMG_20181231_162443.jpg IMG_20181231_162449.jpg This is an original early 1950's Barris Kustoms price list - catalog IMG_20181201_145609.jpg Contact strip of photos with the truck IMG_20181231_162443.jpg MVIMG_20181230_214420.jpg MVIMG_20181230_214420.jpg if this post works I will upload a bunch more. I also have an extensive collection of Ed Roth and Kenny Howard originals.. I'm just not too keen on how all this fancy button shit works on making posts.

    Good to see you posting. Those are fantastic! Thanks for sharing!
    I think that's the only picture I've ever seen of Bill Hines w/o a cigar hanging from his choppers.

    I'd really like to see the inside of that Barris catalog, that's amazing. The unseen pics are great too.

    Excellent stuff to discover...Thanks for sharing!
    I was talking to Kenny Howard at the San Jose Autorama, 1955...my bud Jim Rose took a pic of us, (he was a 'bug' at pic taking)
    Months later, R&C did a brief cover on "Von Dutch"! Wow!
    Wish I still had that pic... There were a few others I wish I'd had pics of, too.
    Tommy the Greek was one.
