Jonnie told me many times that, with his other ventures, he was greatly blessed to rub elbows with other Greats- this one being George Barris, the "Car Guy" who made the Batmobile, the Munster cars" and others a reality. In Jonnie's words, regarding George Barris:
"I have finished-up a Special Tribute Page for George Barris, and it contains TWELVE of the BEST Interviews that we did between 2006 & 2014. George's memory banks were always spot-on talking about any of the ground-breaking rides that he & Sam built.
To make it easy to access these historic builds, I've listed ALL 12 stories on the Page with a synopsis of each. And, they can be accessed by clicking-on the Link for each story.
AND, WHAT STORIES THEY ARE ! The "Batmobile", the "Munsters Cars", the "Hirohata Merc", the "Ala Kart", the "Golden Sahara", the "Aztec", the "Larry Ernst Chopped BelAir", "Sam's Chopped Merc", "Street Racing, Bullet Holes, and, TV/Movie Cars", the "Little Deuce Coupe", the "XPAK 400" Hovercar; and, the "Burgarin Merc" !!!
Here's the direct Link...and feel free to put it on your FaceBook page & to pass-it-onto anyone you think might enjoy it: http://www.legends.thewwbc.net/gpage146.html
Again, sincere thanks...George Barris was truly "The King Of The Kustomizers".
