Fords, Chevys, a Ferrari, a Gaz 69 and many other cars on display Saturday in Culver City.

George Barris created the original Bat-mobile for the Batman TV series. Here is a Bat-limo that was on display in downtown Culver City on Saturday.

George Barris Cruisin’ Back to the 50’s Culver City Car Show was on this past Saturday May 11 2013 in downtown Culver City. The crowds came out as the weather was near perfect California weather with sunshine and though it was warm for the season it was quite nice and not too hot. On display were many great cars and restorations, but as shown below, sometimes it might be best to just leave things alone and let age and wear show – the result can still be extremely eye-pleasing!

Left unrestored or restored to look like it was left alone? Great looking car is the end result.

To me the below ferrari seemed slightly out of place, it’s not a ‘cruising’ car or a 50’s car, but they are classics so…

Black Ferrari

Another odd one out was definitely the USSR Military Vehicle on display. It was a Gaz 69, more or less what we would call a Jeep copy.
