R.I.P. George Barris, creator of the Batmobile, KITT and many other legendary cars.
Sad to hear the passing away of George Barris, at 89. George was the creator of many memorable movie and TV cars such as the original 1966 Batmobile, Knight Rider's KITT and many others.
His son Brett posted the following:
"Sorry to have to post that my father, legendary kustom car king George Barris, has moved to the bigger garage in the sky,” Brett wrote. “He passed on peacefully in his sleep at 2:45 a.m. He was surrounded by his family in the comfort of his home.”
“...My father lived his life they way he wanted til the end. He would want everyone to celebrate the passion he had for life and for what he created for all to enjoy.”
