    I went to LBJ's ranch in 2010. The Corvette in the carport was one LBJ gave to his daughter. Wonder if this is the same car?

    The story I've always run across states that Barris bought the truck from someone else already chopped. I suppose several books that mention this could be wrong. Can anyone shed some light on the story.

    I know Gene McKinney saved quite a few over the years.

  5. Erosion control. I see it as money in the bank.

    If I remember correctly, the Barris Brothers bought the truck initially to be a shop truck, and then things got out of hand...you may be thinking of Spencer Murray's R&C Dream Truck. Barris did the front end on it (Studebaker grill pans, quad headlights), but it came to the Barris shop after Sam Gates of Pasadena chopped the top. Later it went to Indiana's Bob Metz for the rear fender treatment.

    So I think that the Barris's did chop this one...but the authority is Rik Hoving.

    I remember 19 cent hamburgers on Supulveda in Culver City.....you'd buy a dollar's worth thinking that you would feast out and end up giving or throwing them away, they were so bad. Must've been made out something other that meat.
