GEORGE BARRIS 1951 EUROPE TRIP

 

In 1951 George Barris visited several European countries for his Barris Study Trip. Italy, Germany and France were visited. And young George was seriously inspired and immersed himself in the European atmosphere, This is part three, showing more of George his car related snapshot of the trip.



[dropcap]I[/dropcap]n this third part of the 1951 Study trip by George Barris we show you some more of the car related snapshots George took on this trip. Some of the photos George took were of some high class well designed cars, others were more ordinary every day cars. But for George even those might be completely new to him since they were not imported to the US. He thought those cars were just interesting and wanted to share them with his brother Sam back in LA to discuss possible future Custom Car styling. Or just to be shared with his friends. All photos by George Barris.
