Car Room TV: Clips! Round 2 "Munster Koach" and "Drag-U-La"
No red blooded American kid ever missed the end credits for each episode of "The Munsters" - or they'd miss George Barris' kustom "Munster Koach" as it hauled into view with the whole Munster family perched inside, and on the outlandish (and hysterically unsafe) high rear bench seat. Pairing the Koach with its equally kreepy "Drag-U-La" - literally a coffin on wheels - Round 2 has brought out two of the most famous cars in TV land.

1966 Ed Roth "Druid Princess"
The last of Ed Roths show cars, Druid Princess was commissioned by ABC for the Addams Family before the show was cancelled and the car was completed. It was found and restored by Roths son Darryl and re-finished by Fritz Schenck. This show-stopping custom will be offered for auction September 26 at RM Auctions Icons of Speed & Style event in Los Angeles, California.

Rat Rod Central
This year's World of Wheels at McCormick Place in late January had a great rat rod display, but the video had to wait until I found the right music. And it doesn't get much better than Mickey Gilley "Drive-In Movie" and Eddie Cochran "Somethin' Else".
And to the guy behind me talking to his friend while I was shooting: They DIDN'T forget to paint them! And that's the main attitude that people who own or like rat rods have to put up with.

George Barris also designed other cars:
Among Barris' claims to fame are memorable vehicles like James Dean's Spyder Porsche, the golf-cart-turned prehistoric auto used in "The Flintstones" movie; KITT, David Hasselhoff's talkative Pontiac Firebird TransAm in "Knight Rider"; the Ghostbusters' ECTO-1, and Herman Munster's morbid Munster Koach. He has also designed cars for entertainers, such as a limo for Elvis, and The Monkees' Monkee Mobile.
