Legendary cars up for auction

"When George Barris cleans out his garage, it's no ordinary tag sale."

The L.A. Daily News reports - "Today {May 13, 2005), Barris is auctioning off more than 70 custom automobiles his company, North Hollywood-based Barris Kustom Industries, built or accessorized for the entertainment business.

The collection includes two of the 1969 orange Dodge Chargers, known as the General Lee, in the 'Dukes of Hazzard' series. And there's John Travolta's Greased Lightning 1946 Ford hot rod from the movie musical 'Grease.'"

Here's one of my favorite George Barris kustom wheels:
