George Barris 2011 Culver City Car Show - May 7, 2011

The Barris "Cruisin' Back to the 50's" car show is an annual event that has descended on the business lined streets of downtown Culver City for the better part of 7 years.  Living in Southern California and attending several classic car shows a year, we feel at ease to say that this event brings out some of the finest cars the Golden State has to offer.  Aside from a slew of awesome rides, cool vendors, and tasty eats; we were blessed to catch the end of Deke Dickerson and his band putting on a great performance.

All in all, this was a great show and a beautiful day in Southern California!  Here's a glimpse of what we were able to see and capture.  

Oh and by the way, there's a new artist in town.  If you get a chance stop by and check out some ghoulicious art work.  Bomonster slings out scratch board style screen prints, lithos, original artwork, t-shirts, and stickers featuring classic dragsters, roadsters, and ghastly creatures.  

Now it's on with the SHOW!!!

The back end of the Barris Kargoyle!

"The Platinum Bomb" Aircraft inspired 32 Roadster, 
built by none other than the guys at Hollywood Hot Rods 

This pic just doesn't do this interior justice. If you've ever had the chance to see this one up close then you know what I'm talking about.

Speeding through the cosmos!!
