EVERY YEAR AT THE KKOA LEAD SLED SPECTACULAR IN SALINA, GEORGE BARRIS , JOHN D'AGOSTINO, and, myself, have a Sunday Morning Session that gives us a chance to relax and talk Rods & Customs...past & present. This year we added the Legendary JOE BAILON to the mix.
During our conversation, I told George that I had Interviewed MIKE ALEXANDER about "The Little Deuce Coupe", and, that Mike & Larry had appreciated the changes that George had made, and, how much Mike respected George for what he did for the "A-Brothers", and for the Industry.
I also wanted George's story about the LDC, the A-Brothers, and, anything else he wanted to cover. AND, boy, did George give some great Info on EVERYTHING ! Including the "One Time Only", Historic Cruise of the FIVE versions of the most Iconic vehicle ever created: "THE BATMOBILE" !
IN ADDITION, there are some cool comments from John D'Agostino, and some kind words from Joe Bailon to close the Session. Listen, learn, and ENJOY ! JK
