Car News briefs:
Barris' GTO roadster
AUTOWEEK
Posted Date: 3/22/05

Crowd favorite


This Pontiac GTO roadster wasn’t entered for any awards at the recent Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, but the George Barris Kustom Kreation unveiled there was a show favorite. Responding to a challenge issued at the 2004 event by Amelia Island producer Bill Warner and AutoWeek editorial director Keith Crain, Barris built the roadster over the last year from a GTO provided by Pontiac.

I Googled this thing to get other pix of it.

It's really not very attactive. The lines are hideous, but they've compensated for that by painting it a butt-ugly color.

That being said, I'm sure it has an awesome personality and is a great dancer. :lol:

Geez, I didn't know George Barris was still alive. Haven't seen any new work out of him in over 30 years. Based on this piece of crap, I kind of wish he stayed retired. Maybe the reporter got it wrong. Maybe The Gong Show's Chuck Barris did this.
