george-barris-110515Earlier this month, Hollywood and the auto industry lost a legend.

George Barris, the so-called “King of the Kustomizers,” died November 5th at his home in Los Angeles, after a battle with cancer.  He was 89 years old.

Barris designed some of Hollywood’s most iconic cars, like the Batmobile, the Munster Koach, KITT from Knight Rider and many more.

On the Barris Custom Industries website, he is described as “A true original who made a difference. George was larger than life and will be missed dearly by his family, friends and fans.”

Earlier this year, in one of his last television appearances, California Life got a chance to talk to Barris about his incredible creations.
