Watson's Custom Car Confessions
Watson’s Custom Car Confessions is a 148 page in-depth look at the personal custom cars of customizer and custom paint legend Larry Watson, the girls that went along for the rides and boulevard cruising, and the troubles with the police during those antagonistic times when custom cars and their owners were the focus of police scrutiny. The book is written by Thom Taylor and Larry Watson. Growing up in the heart of the custom car craze in Bellflower during the 1950s, and throughout his life, Watson created some of the most influential custom cars of all time. From his famous 1950 Chevrolet Grapevine and legendary 1958 Thunderbird Vino Paisano, to later cars like his custom 1972 Ford Ranchero made famous in the Robert Culp movie Outrage, they’re all here. Literally finished the night Larry died; it’s a tribute to his life and legacy with the cars he displayed his unique talents through. Initial printing of 1000 copies ensured that the book sold out pretty fast. The book was sold for $30.00 plus shipping and handling.
