The artistic creations of the great Larry Watson --
« on: November 08, 2017, 09:57:38 PM »
If you're into cars, bodywork, and gleaming paint, then you need to get to know Larry Watson. He passed away in 2010, but he was one of the great California custom painters of the post WWII era. Everyone interested in custom cars has heard of Barris, Jeffries, Von Dutch, Winfield, and Roth, but few had a bigger influence than Watson.

The H.A.M.B. has an entire thread dedicated to Watson's personal story and it includes his own pictures that were shot over several decades.

Here is a great vid linked to the H.A.M.B. where Larry is discussing his passion and his life's work!

Sorry Gary ---  The Jalopy Journal links are down with a database error. Maybe Ryan removed the info already. BUT the YouTube links are still good.

Looks like they had a crssh and are trying to restore
Tool do job = Good tool
When the media is owned by those who believe they have the right to choose leaders, and also believe that only the rich have the right to make decisions, the media ceases to be an objective reporting tool, and becomes an instrument of criminal conspiracy.
