Item description for Barris Kustom Techniques of the '50s: Flames, Scallops, Paneling and Striping (Old Skool Skills) by George Barris...

People are as interesting in painting and customizing now, as they were when this material was first created, in the 1950s. Everyone wants to know how to do a flame job, or how to run a pair of pinstripes straight down the side of their car. In this book George Barris explains how he and brother Sam did their custom painting and early flame jobs in the 1950s. No one can tell this story as well as George Barris, a fine photographer and the man who built many of the cars shown in the book. This particular book, Volume 4, contains more than just the photos and words of George Barris. This volume contains first-person side-bars by legendary painters and builders like Dean Jeffries and Larry Watson, describing how they developed their talents and what it was like to customize cars in those days.

More About George Barris

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! The one name, the one man, who epitomizes kustom cars is George Barris. A man who started working on cars during World War II, George is still promoting shows, handing out trophies and still kissing the trophy girls. In the 1950s, George and his brother Sam developed what came to be known as the "Barris look." All of the cars to come out of their shop in southern California exhibited a certain cleanliness of line and sophistication that had more in common with sophisticated coach-built European cars than American hot rods of the same period. At the same time that George and Sam were building some very famous cars like the Hirohata Merc and the Polynesian, George started to photograph their cars and write stories for magazines like Rod&Custom. Not only does George Barris write as an expert on custom cars, in many cases he was the builder of the car he's describing.

George Barris currently resides in Los Angeles, in the state of California.

Not a how to....  Jun 27, 2000
This is a great book to read about a number of Barris's projects, and I recommend it for just that. This is not a book that will get you started. Excellent book, excellent content, and a must buy if you are a Barris fan. Not a how to.

I used this book to give me ideas for a demolition derby car that I was getting ready to paint. This book gave me lots of ideas and creative insight.
