LIVE WIRE is finally coming home..

Well after almost a year my little LIVE WIRE is going to be back home after a spending time at it's home away from home Austin Texas.. Most of the time It stayed tucked away in Bob Bleeds garage but when I was out there working at Austin Speed Shop I brought it over to the shop and it even got to hang out in the showroom.

The high light was having it there for the Lone Star Round Up.. I can't express how much it means to me to be cruising around Austin with my good friends.. No feeling like it.

So in a few weeks Marcy is loading her up and making the trek from Austin all the way to Sucksville Ca.
It will be nice to have her back.. Gotta fix some things for sure.. Thank You Austin Speed Shop for letting her sleep over..

Welcome to Barris Kustom City!! New Site..Vintage Images

So when Brett Barris and I were working on the Barris DVD I kept bugging him that we need to do a site the mainly reflects on early Barris images and Merchandise.. everything that the Hollywood Barris site dose not have... We wanted it to be a place that people can check out our blog every week with updates and history as we dive into 1000's of images..it's image Archive that will blow your mind as we keep adding to it.. It will be a place to get limited edition prints that will vary in sizes from 8X8 to 12X14 that are really high end prints that will be framed.. Not some color printer crap real photo lab stuff!! This will also be a market place for all that is Vintage Barris.. We have the DVD and the Photo book that Brett is working on now along with Tee Shirts that we are commissioning Artist to do designs as well as reintroducing early Barris Logos and Designs..

So I built the site and will be running it and taking care of the merch.. along with Brett..

Pix from the Barris DVD Release Party..

So on December 5th Brad Masterson celebrated the 52nd Anniversary of the Fire at the Barris shop in Lynwood that destroyed several kustoms in 1957.. Since I Just recently released the Barris DVD witch features Brad and the Lynwood shop. So we asked If we could do a release for the DVD and so it was ON!!!! The Dynotones came up to play while we project the Photo show behind them..
Plus being in the old shop was just AWESOME in itself..

We had a good turn out.. George, Watson, Hines, D' Agustiono, and the great Alex Gambino just to 
name a few..
