    Default Legendary customizer George Barris kustomizes krazy Chevrolet Camaro



    If you happen to be in the greater Burbank area this weekend, you might want to swing by Community Chevrolet on Saturday. Legendary car customizer George Barris is scheduled to unveil his latest project – a kustomized 2010 Chevrolet Camaro 2SS RS – by driving the car straight to the dealer himself. Called the "Spirit" Camaro, the car is designed to be affordable for the working class Joe, meaning there aren't any wild power adders under the hood.

    Instead, Barris focused on creating a unique exterior for the General Motors muscle car. The hood and front fenders all get a striking paint job in the buyer's choice of either red or yellow, complete with pearl accents. The grille has been swapped for a new three-bar unit designed to give the car a classic feel. The look won't be for everyone, but it could be your only chance to own an original Barris creation. You can order your very own through your local Chevrolet dealer, who will contact Community Chevrolet in turn.

    Barris made a name for himself by creating some of Hollywood's most iconic cars and trucks. His work took center stage on shows like The Beverly Hillbillies, The Munsters and the original Batman. He even turned out the very first KITT for Knight Rider back before NBC had its way with the concept. So far, there's no word on how many Spirit Camaros will be produced, or how much Barris will want for each one. Stay tuned.


    Press Release

    The #1 Barris Kustom 2010 Chevrolet Camaro 'Spirit' Premieres in the USA in Burbank, California, Saturday, April 10th

    BURBANK, Calif., April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- A VIP event marks the historical delivery of the first Barris Kustom 2010 Chevrolet Camaro "Spirit" to a Chevrolet dealership in the USA. This long awaited event is Saturday, April 10th from 1 to 3PM at Community Chevrolet, one of the oldest Chevrolet dealerships in California. George Barris, "King of the Auto Kustomizers" and American icon, will drive the 1st car into the dealership himself. Hot rods and the famed Barris 1966 Batmobile will be displayed. Many celebrities are expected including John Schneider, Joe Mantegna, James Pitt (Avatar), Claudia Wells (Back to the Future), Barris pal-Jay Leno, Cindy Margolis, Bo Derek and many others.

    This highly anticipated kustom Chevrolet Camaro represents a quantum shift in the availability of kustom vehicles from the famous Barris Kustom vehicle design house. "Barris Kustom has entered a new chapter by delivering affordable kustom vehicles direct to the dealer showroom," said George Barris.

He has been thrilling movie and pop-culture fans with his famous TV Batmobile, Munster Koach, Beverly Hillbilly truck, Knightrider KITT and others. His first love is kustomizing new cars from Detroit and improving them.

    "Today many kustom vehicles have entirely too much work done on them," said Barris. "I believe we have succeeded in developing a kustom vehicle with just the right amount of features keeping it affordable to the automotive enthusiast while being made in the USA."

    Using the 2010 Camaro 2SS RS as a base, he added these kustom features and others:

    -- Kustom painted hood with deep pearl and metallic accents emphasizing
    wide, aggressive stance of the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro.
    -- Kustom painted front fenders and doors. The aerodynamic "Spear" blurs

    -- "Spirit" name is added to both fenders along with Barris Kustom Crest
    insignia.

    Nice car, but I'm not too crazy about the paint scheme.

    I like the grill. I wish GM would have put chrome in to begin with. I'm not sure I like the paint scheme or window treatment The single stripe on the hood is fine, but the sides just don't do it for me....
