  • RIP Mr. George Barris

    It would be nice if someone attending would film/document this funeral service for those of us from other parts of the world who unfortunately wont be able to attend.

  • Ill will reserve a minit silence for Mr Barris and reflect on what George made of him self and what he gave us to remember him by.

    Tho as we say good bye and farewell to George Barris there will be as big of a welcoming up stairs with all the crushed / wrecked cars lined up waiting to welcome him.

    My guess the Nick Matranga’s Merc will be there in the line up of cars that were lost.
