Legendary auto customizer George Barris will make a rare Sacramento appearance July 14th at Sacramento Vintage Ford to debut his new line of memorabilia and sign autographs for fans.

He will also bring the legendary TV Star the �Batmobile� that was used on the original TV series Batman.

George added the bat phone, radar, and all the trick gadgets that made the Batmobile famous around the world. This will be the last Sacramento appearance of the Batmobile before being completely restored and updated by Mike Gray at Advanced Restoration in Sacramento, California

 The NEW Von Dutch Book
 Available Now At Sacramento Vintage!

The Art of Von Dutch

One of the most misunderstood and eccentric artists of his day, Kenneth Howard, aka Von Dutch, was a uniquely talented and versatile craftsman known for his innovative pinstriping, engraving, machining, sign painting, and mechanical skills.

This long-awaited book celebrates his artistic achievements and sets the record straight on his important contributions to American pop culture from the late 1940s to his untimely death in 1992. The most comprehensive catalog of original works by Von Dutch ever assembled, this volume will serve as a historic reference for generations to come.

With 420 full-color pages packed with over 1000 photos and a host of essays and anecdotes from Dutch's friends and associates, this treasure trove is a must-have for artists, collectors, gearheads, grease monkeys and enthusiasts alike.

Compiled By Aaron Kahn, Douglas Nason, Al Quattrocchi, & Jeff Smith, hardcover, 420 pages, Tornado Design. $75.00

 75 Years of the '32 Ford
 .......Due Out In Late August 2006

Deuce: 75 Years of the '32 Ford by Robert Genat. (Available late August). Image Courtesy Car Tech.

The 1932 Ford, the Deuce, is among the most important automobiles ever produced. A landmark car for Ford, the '32 introduced Henry Ford's groundbreaking V-8 engine, bringing the iconic engine configuration to the masses for the first time. Just as significantly, the '32 Ford's myriad body styles and abundant production figures made it the ideal platform for hot rodders and the inspiration for an entire automotive performance industry.

Now 75 years after its introduction, the Deuce continues to be the foundation for many a hot rod. Deuce: 75 Years of the 1932 Ford is a complete history of the car as it was built, and as a hot rod and race car. The book covers the design, development and production of the Deuce, including vintage factory photos and details on the cars as they came from the factory. Deuce also relates the story of the car as a race car and as the hot rod of choice for generations of hop-up enthusiasts. Sidebars will explore the personalities and companies that have helped the Deuce become a pop culture phenomenon and a focal point of the automotive enthusiast community.

Hardcover, 192 pages, 10" x 10", 200 color illustrations and 100 black and white photos. by Car Tech. (Available at Sacramento Vintage in Late August. $39.95)
