The NHRA Wally Parks Motorsport Museum will open a great exhibit on George Barris on July 11th. The exhibit will cover a great part of the custom car history of George Barris and Barris Kustoms. The Exhibit will include an amazine photo collection, memorabilia, posters, models and a selection of Barris Built Custom Cars. Among the Barris built Custom Cars that will be at the Exhibit will be the R&C Dream Truck, The Hirohata Merc, the Sam Barris 1949 Mercury(which will not be ready for the opening but will join the exhibit as soon as it is completed), The Emporor, Blue Danube clone, Matranga clone, the Aztec and several others. There will also be a selection of my Kolorized Photos of Barris Kustoms in Large format at the exhibit... which makes me very proud! A ful Press-release can be downloaded here: http://www.barris.com/news/images/barris_exhibit_pressrelease.pdf Barry Mazza was infited to bring his restored Aztec to Californai especially for the Exhibit. Two weekends ago the Aztec was picked up in Florida by a huge transporter that took the Aztec with 5 more cars on its trip to California. A drive that would take over a week. Barry was quite nervous since he stayed behind in Floriday, on the phone with the driver every day to find out how his Aztec was doing. Monday Morning the car arrived at the Museum in perfect condition. Back in California where it was built by the Barris Crew so many years ago. Rose Dickinson, from the Museum, took the photos of the Aztec fresh out of the trailer right before it was driven inside the Museum garage.... Lucky Greg!!! Photos from the Aztec getting onto the trailer.... (photos by Barry Mazza) Photo by Kustom Buick The Aztec right after it was driven of the trailer on the side of the Museum.

I wish I could make it out there to see these great Barris customs and all the other great Barris memorobilia at this Museum Exhibit... but I dont think I can make it. But for all other Custom Car enthusiast... this one is not to be missed..., and for those who go, please take plenty of photos for those who cant make it out there.
