Sneak Peek of the 6 Barris Images for Print..

So after going through a bunch of the Barris color transparencies.. I narrowed it down
to the first 6 in a huge series of limited edition numbered and signed high end prints.

These are scanned directly from the transparencies so the quality of the image is going to 
RULE.. And thanks to Johnny who is going to print them up and make sure
they are top notch!!!

We will be making 100 of each image and will run 35.00 + shipping

Coming Soon!!! Stay Tuned!!

THE RIK HOVING FILES: 1947 Ford Convertible Owner Unknown...

1947 Ford Convertible Owner Unknown

The first time I saw this wonderful early custom was in one of the Don Montgomery books. The photo you see here below is from the collection of Bart Bartoni. The first thing that stopped me from flipping to the next page in the book was the extreme beauty of the padded top, and especially the slanted forward “B”-pillar. Over the years that I have had this photo I must have looked at it for hours.  

Photo from the Bart Bartoni Collection - 
The 1947 Ford in front of the Barris Compton Avenue shop with
a 1939-40 Mercury Custom on the other side of the street.
