Always reminds me of that scene in "Caddyshack."

…but there’s something wrong with your cars.

I clipped a sideview mirror,

More Dima-designed cars...

…to add to Grey’s growing collection!

This one in particular is pretty badass.

...with his name on it!

Dima’s a real-life elf,

I got to hang out with the Batmobile!

My good friend Dmitriy is friends with legendary custom car designer George Barris. For months now, Dmitriy has been inviting me to accompany him to Barris’ shop, and I finally took him up on the offer.

I could write a thousand words about how cool it was to stand next to some of the cars I grew up watching on television. But instead, I’ll let these photos do the talking.

Next to the Batmobile was another of George’s famous custom creations: K.I.T.T. from “Knight Rider.”

And lastly, we poked around in George’s garage where we found the classic Munster Koach from “The Munsters.”

At first, I asked Dmitriy to take a picture of me next to the Koach.

But then he suggested I get inside for a shot.

And you know, because it’s the friggin’ Munster Koach, I had to.

Thanks to Dmitriy for bringing me along, and George for giving us complete access to his garage.
