by George Barris and David Fetherston
Since the 1960's, George Barris has been one of the world's most famous car customizers, creating one-of-a kind kustom rides from his North Hollywood shop. With the demand for his cars in films, and the proximity to Tinseltown, it was inevitable that when Hollywood celebrities wanted their cars customized they turned to Barris for this - and what customizing there was! Paul Revere and the Raiders asked for a twin-engine touring bus, Sammy Davis Junior and his Ford Thunderbird modelled into a Titan, Elvis Presley demanded a turntable in his Mustang, whilst Frank Sinatra insisted on two brake and accelerator pedals in case one failed. Zsa Zsa Gabor insisted her Rolls Royce "dripped with jewels", including diamond and ruby encrusted upholstery, whilst John Travolta wanted a "real fast" Custom TransAm, and John Wayne asked for the same car but "with real power in it". Clint Eastwood, Farrah Fawcett, Anne-Margaret, Bo Derek, Mick Fleetwood, Colin Farrell, Neil Diamond, the Beach Boys, David Lee Roth, and many, many more.
All celebrities are pictured along with the kustom cars, and a commentary by George Barris on the car build and the celebrities making this a fascinating reference work for any car enthusiast.
