The plot: 8-person teams will have a 72-hour time frame to prepare a custom project on a very wide style of vehicles. It will be about talent, creativity, but also physical stamina (probably no sleep possible) Joining George Barris to criticize, judge, award the teams, Jimmy Shine of world famous So-Cal Speed Shop, Martin from Galpin Auto Sports and from the TV series Pimp My Ride. An opportunity for me to tell you to visit, like I did recently, George Barris Shop while in Los Angeles. It’s an amazing place full of famous vehicles like the Batman, the Batgirl, and many weird creations that you have seen on screen so many times Call first.
