    That is a fine job. That car could not be in better hands for the restoration. Wish I could have been there to see it. Thanks for the teaser pic.

    The plan is to take the car to Paso without interior, and finished after that

    Here is a couple more, and one of the next project to start this July..

    Both Cars are to be done and on display at the GNRS in 2008

    Cool keep us posted on Ala Kart. I love to see those cars found and restored (if they need it). A guy here in town has the A brothers Victorion hes restoring for a customer. I tryed to get him to post up some pics but know luck yet.

    Darryl:The Merc. looks terriffic.It's gratifying to see a historical car preserved.To go along with the restoration I would like to see a history of the car -I.E. Bought new by Sam Barris,year chopped,subsequent owners,etc.

    Man, this car really makes me feel emotional. Seeing it back in it's original color gave me a similar feeling to when my kids were born. A little hard to describe actually. I really hope I get a chance to see it in person

    Outstanding job. O/T If George got a street named after him, then Sam should get a freeway with speed limit of "cruisin" on it!

    I agree that Sam is the man, but without George you may have never heard of either of them. Great craftsman/artists need even better promoters.

    The only thing George ever did better than Sam was not to die young.
