Retro Wednesday: George Barris of the Barris Brothers

Anytime you turned on the TV in the 60s and 70s and spotted a cool car, chances are it was designed by George Barris of the Barris Brothers. The Batmobile, the Black Beauty from the Green Hornet, the Monkees’ Mobile, the Munster’s car, and the Flint Mobile were all designed by one man, him.  In fact, Barris’ designs were so cool that when the Green Hornet was made last year, many people were bummed that it wasn’t as cool and tripped out as the original.  Here is a look at the tricked out world of George Barris, one of the original kings of Kustom Kulture cars.
