    Watson wasn't a painter, he was an artist.

  3. I was luckily enough to know Larry in his later life. And he remembered every car, every paint job, every color mix and would spend hours talking of them.
    I would love to have this video on quality DVD instead of this low quality utube,,,, Roger????

    Larry's work is obviously performed by an artist of note. Thanks for this.

    I think it's interesting he started all that in high school and high school cars were featured in magazines. I'd like to see more detail on every car in the video. Real history. I love it.

    Mr Watson did a great job of documenting his many paint jobs. His personal picture archive is really impressive. I believe that it is located over on the Rik Hoving Custom Car Chronicle site.
    Great talent and a true artists imagination.....

    The back of that plaque has a Von Dutch/ Dean Jeffries vibe going for it.
