With the sad news of Boyd Coddington's death and Brock Yates' blog departure, it has us thinking about automotive heroes. For some a hero is a designer like Carroll Shelby (despite some recent events). For others, it's a racer like Fangio, Schumacher or Foyt (despite a temper). What about George Barris? He's the man behind the Monkeemachine and the Batmobile. Can't hate on that.
