” in love with Kate Gosselin, and would love to date her.”

When they asked who’s the sexiest Dancer on DWTS, both replied Kate Gosselin. “Kate is even sexier than Pamela Anderson,”  said Tourie.  She’s “Pinot.”

This long awaited American automobile industry event was be held Saturday April 10th at Community Chevrolet, one of the oldest, and successful Chevrolet dealerships in California.

George Barris, “King of the Auto Kustomizers” and American icon, drove the 1st car into the dealership himself immediately following the 2010 Annual Burbank on Parade. George Barris and the new Barris Camaro “Spirit” are a major feature in this year’s parade.  Along with other unique kustom cars, the  famed  Barris 1966 TV Batmobile were also be on display.

Many celebrities were invited and turned out to the spectacular event and red carpet affair including: George Barris, James Pitt (Avatar), Brenda Dickson-Young & The Restless,  Claudia Wells-Back to the Future,  Comedian/Actress Judy Tenuta,  Kat Kramer and her Mom,  Dave Lea (Batman 1+2),LA,

Other celebs included:  Zac Callison( Hannah Montana), Stefanie Scott(Flipped, Old Christine), Jenessa Rose-Ponyo(GForce, Imagine That,  Julianna Rose(Diary of a Wimpy Kid, I Carly)Brandon Tyler Russel (Smitty), Damien Escobar & Toure Escobar- ( ABC’ Dancing with Starsl NBC America’s Got Talent; MTV Unplugged -Emmy Award-winning Sony Recording Artists Nuttin’ But Stringz) and many other celebs attended.

Driven by a never ending passion to kustomize automobiles, George Barris of Barris Kustoms in North Hollywood, CA was pleased and excited more than ever, to jump into this project last year and to head the team that designed and produced one of the hottest and long-awaited ” kustom” Chevrolets in history.

This highly anticipated kustom Chevrolet Camaro represents a quantum shift in the availability of kustom vehicles from arguably the most famous kustom vehicle design house in the world! “Barris Kustoms has entered into a new chapter by delivering affordable kustom vehicles direct to the dealer showroom”, say George Barris founder of Barris Kustoms.

Operating for over 60 years,  Barris has been developing unique one-of-a-kind vehicles and product designs including motion picture & TV cars, celebrity vehicles, motorcycles, golf carts, bicycles, fashion lines, and now a line of kustom electric rock guitars. He has been thrilling car, movie and pop-culture fans alike with his famous TV Batmobile, Munster Koach, Beverly Hillbilly truck, Knightrider KITT and many others.  But his first love has always been redesigning and kustomizing new cars from Detroit and making them look better.

“Today so many kustom vehicles have entirely too much work done on them”, says Barris. “I believe we have succeeded in developing a kustom vehicle with just the right amount of kustom features and keeping it affordable to the automotive enthusiast while being made in the USA.”

The Barris “Spirit” Camaro will be available at selected dealerships or can be ordered directly through your local new car Chevrolet dealer.

George Barris immediately saw  incredible potential of the new 2010 Chevrolet Camaro as a kustom canvas.  ” Using the 2010 Camaro 2SS RS as our base model, he added the following kustom features:

•           Kustom painted hood with deep pearl and metallic accents emphasizing the wide, aggressive stance of the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro.

•           Kustom painted front fenders and doors. The aerodynamic “Spear” blurs the vision with a striking burst of speed.

•           Kustom foil “hand-swirled” striping and beautifully pin-stripping outline the kustom paint on the hood, front fenders and doors.

•           Kustom paint to accent the rear fender louvers

•           Kustom paint to accent the four taillight tunnels

•           Kustom 3 bar chrome legend grill

•           “Spirit” name is added to both fenders along with a Barris Kustom Crest insignia.

•           Barris Kustom dash plaque hand signed by George Barris.

•           Lexani Chrome Painted Spoked Wheels

Each new Barris “Spirit” Camaro comes with a Certificate of Authenticity” certifying the vehicle was kustomized by Barris Kustom.
