    Anthony White is sharing some really amazing 80’s and 90’s photos taken by Bill Barrile.

    Bill is an excellent photographer capturing these beautiful custom from the very best angles. The color on these have shifted a little… but just look past that!

    All words by Anthony White.



    “Here’s Jim Walkers 50 Merc convert as shot by Bill Barrile I stared at it on a poster in my room for hundreds of hours as a kid. It is an old Ohio Kustom.”

    “Here’s the front of Jim Walkers 36 Roadster as shot by Bill Barrile When I was 10 years old this thing looked like it blasted off the Robert Williams painting and this pic is from the same angle.”

    “This comes out of the stable of famed Kustom collector Jim Walker of Dayton Ohio. Best 36 Roadster I ever saw. This pic was taken in 1985 in Springfield Ohio by you guessed it, Bill Barrile. In the back ground we have Ernie Roth’s Long Island NY based chopped 51 Merc, “ Low & Lovely” that had just been painted by Joe Maneri!”Bill Barrile-Collection-05


    “Here’s some prime time “Top Chop Charlie” Brewer cooking from the early 80’s. The car was owned by Tom Gitzinger Ttgitz Mbenz when Bill Barrile shot this pic! I wasn’t far away. I was there too. The car is a clone of the famous Duane Steck “Moonglow” 54 Chevy.”

    “In In 1985, The first real “Low Rider” in upstate New York, Bill Barrile shot pics of Barry David’s 41 Ford in Springfield Ohio. As a child I thought it must have been a Barris or Ayala car but later in life I learned that it was built by an unknown shop for Don Reid from Rik Hoving. I however suspect Ayala involvement but that’s just an opinion. I’m sure Rik might agree.”

    “This wicked 40 Merc was shot by Bill Barrile at the 1983 Leadsled Nationals. It was featured in the show coverage in Petersen Publishing’s “Custom Cars” or maybe even Classic & Customs event coverage. It was from Virginia so I always wondered if it was the one Lee Petersen showed up with a decade or so later but I never saw Lees in person, only a bad pic”
