The Re-Opening of the shop, and the 56th Annual Masterson Fireparty

This Saturday was a night I never will forget. We hosted the Grand Re-Opening of the shop, and the Annual Fireparty to remember the fire that caught the Barris Shop on December 7th, 1957.  Bill Hines, George Barris and Jack Stewart made a special guest appearance, and it was really special to see them wonder around in the shop. Those people are artists, they created timeless art, in form of cars. It's something with it that's so unique..

We cleaned the shop and arranged the cars up nice before the party.

People began to show up around noon.

Bill Hines rolled up at sundown

Jack Rudy with his 1953 Chevy

Bill Hines Jr. showed me the golden engine that nestled under the hood.

Here Jack and George are remembering old times. What a trip! And Jack brought me a christmas present!

George ready to grind some lead!


Kevan Sledge and Brad
Beatnick Joe enjoyed the party to!

Riky Barnes and the Pushers really got the joint rocking!

Brad, Kevan and I stayed up all night and talked about our future, and what we want to do! More about this later!

Rob, Kevan and I decided to take a nice Sunday cruise in my wagon. Here we are at the old Barris Shop, at 7674 Compton Ave.

Kevan had to buy beer at the famous Rex Liquor Store!
The wagon went out of gas in a really bad neighborhood in Inglewood! It was kind of thrilling!

That was all for this time folks! If you weren't there, you really missed out on something good!
