That's some cool stuff thanks for showing us.
It's like a barn find of your mind. Thanks.
Great stuff and some interesting history, thanks for sharing.
heres another original 8X10 of a famous Kustom from my collection
Never seen before double color photo transparency of the daddy of all Kustoms.
4X4 original of a 1960's build.
original color photo transparency of the 1961 Roadster Show winner with the trophy.
heres the full chrome frame of the roadster that won the most beautiful in 1961.
Another color photo transparency.
this is the original color photo transparency of the shot that was printed in the Barris Kustoms 4 part book series. Sorry for the blur. I don't have a light table..
Just an astounding evolution from the Hunter S Thompson of the HAMB to a sober respected (legendary) elder. Congratulations on your transformation, it is inspiring.
George must have loved you like a son! Thanks for these treasures.
I want that plate.
Thanks @Germ...keep them coming...they are priceless to this crowd...
Here's a shot from a contact sheet of Dick Betrolucci out from of his shop in Sacramento California. When I was in my 20's I built some of my first Kustoms and Hot Rods in a shop that I lived in right around the corner from where this picture was taken.
￼ This is an original picture of George Barris that I purchased at an auction along with an original Von Dutch Binks paint sprayer.
this is an original photo of Roth and The Outlaw. This photo was part of a series that was used to promote an Auto Show. Only a handful of these were released in "Press Packages".. They were for event advertising..
another original photo of the Ala-Kart assembly... This was taken in the Atlantic Avenue shop..
another original 8X10 that I purchased from Kurt. This is from the late 50's and it shows the "Monster T-Shirt" craze..
thanks for posting......

Hi Germ.Thanks for starting this thread.It`s great.
Good luck.Have fun.Be safe.
Great photos!! Thanks for sharing.
awesome! keep them coming
a few Original transparencies of another early legendary paint display. These were color in the late 50's early 60's. They were pretty hard to come by. Also a shot of a Kustom Corvette..C
is that a set of Packard lights in that slammed vette? sick!
61 Chrysler looks like. I love a customized early Corvette.
Really cool stuff, Germ...we gotta get together some day.
I don't know much about this Kustom. I wanna say it's Easy Coast.. Late 1950's? Ohio? I bought this 8X10 with a collection when we were traveling around buying stuff..
Here's a picture of George Barris that I got in a box from Brad Masterson. It's an 8X10 also an original. These were sent out with product placement packets to dealers who might be interested in carrying the Barris Kustoms line of products..
i Purchased this original from a collector of Drag Racing History. This shot was taken at Orange County Speedway in the 1960's..
Another 8X10 from the same collection. Also Orange County Dragstrip. This is a pretty early version of the wheelstand.
Here's an early 8X10 of a very young George Barris doing Barris stuff..
Had a guy ask me if I'm posting these things because I want to stay relevant?
I kind of laughed.
Really though, if you're still mad about something I did 17 years ago like banging your girl or whatever and you need to address it with me,
I will be at Salina Kansas this year..
I been busy doing other things in life besides hanging out on an internet board to prove my traditionalism..
I'm raising kids,
rescuing injured water fowl,
and building stuff for myself for once..
I just thought it would be neat to share things that nobody has ever seen before but if you really want to talk about years and years ago..
When you think about it, I probably did a bunch of worse things that you don't know about.
Do some research..
Have a good day.
Beautiful. Yep, again.
Keep on sharing @Germ...we only live once...you are continuing your journey...Thanks for sharing this stuff and what you know about it...it is amazing to see. The Hamb is the perfect vehicle to showcase these rarities of the vintage past.
He’s asking you if you’re relevant? What a joke. Never mind the naysayers Germ. You just keep on keeping on, we’re with you brother.
Oh, man I would love to have a scan of the blue custom 59-60 Chevy...
Would that be possible?
