Compton Drive-in

    Newer Older

    George Barris not only built great custom cars, he also photographed them for enthusiast magazines of the day. One of his favorite locations was the nearby Compton Drive-in. The drive-in is long gone and the Merc is a fairly recent build but they are brought together here through the magic of Photoshop.
