    This has been an awesome series you've done. I'm a print fiend and so far have had all the ones you've mentioned, but this one isn't in my library. That Barris price list is classic. "No mauling or loitering of any customer's cars will be allowed."

    I don't think that Barris was ever appreciated for his photographic skills. In the fifties, he did a lot of photography for MOTOR TREND. My first meeting with him was in 1958 when I supplied him with caption material for a show he covered in San Diego.

    x2 on that price list. Not just the prices, but the time to do the various jobs. Not only good work, but fast.

    Thanks for this Jay. I don't why I never bought this one as I have the other Barris Kustom Technique books. On the wish list it goes!

  8. I actually have this one in the library, so no need to add it to the "gotta find it" list. More room for other books on the list. Actually have an autographed copy to boot.

    Thanks. I have to believe this is what the majority of us on here enjoy.
