Wow, what more can I add to this? My thoughts and all the best to Larry. You can beat it when you know you can, my friend. Nothing short of a legend, Larry's style and innovation was strictly a So Cal thing in those days. I was fortunate enough to get out from the midwest to LA a few times in the 60's and see those rows of Watson-painted cars in the shows and be able to see them cruising Harvey's. I had the means, so, combined with Larry's influence, I went home and created several of my own Watson-inspired late model, wildly painted mild customs over the next few years. It's been great reading all of these stories. I never had the chance to meet him, but anyone of his stature who takes the time to talk to any and everyone, as so many of you have indicated, is truly a hero.
