Custom cars and car-building techniques of the 1950's are more popular now than they were then. Car builders and home-based enthusiasts yearn for information on the "real" custom cars and the men who built them. Filled with car features and in-the-shop how-to sequences, this book is filled with photos and copy by George Barris. The book explains tricks and techniques used to build the very sophisticated custom cars that came out of the Barris Custom Shop in Los Angeles. This book, and all the books in this series, are extremely important, not only for their wonderful photographs and great how-to sequences, but because they capture a big piece of automotive history, as told by a man who was very big part of that history. The true beauty and significance of this book is the first person narrative written by George Barris, and George's excellent photographs that capture both the beauty of the cars, and the techniques used to create them. Volume 2 covers popular techniques of the time, including grille modifications, scoop fabrication, fin forming and frenching.
