George Barris greets my partner ... and wife ... Barris is as active as ever, in spite of a devastating profile in the Los Angeles Times several months ago, which questioned Barris' claims of having designed, built and maintained several of the best-known movie and TV cars in the world. The truth lies somewhere in a gray area between "Barris built all those cars" and "Barris never built any of those cars." Though some say that Barris didn't build some of the cars he claims to have created, he does own them now and is such a great ambassador of the "kustom kar" hobby (as Barris would spell it) that many in the business ignore some his claims and just appreciate Barris for all he's done for the custom car world.
