Kurt McKormick

Kurt's first car at 16 was a 51 ford.  He had many custom ideas for his 51, but it never happened. In 1968, at 24, he bought his first custom - it was a 1950 chopped merc which he bought from Webber Park Motors (a used car lot) in Afton, MO for $150.00! Ten years later he bought his first of many Barris Kustoms which was the Parisienne a 1954 Cadillac Eldorado. Over time Kurt was buying and restoring Barris Kustoms from all over the country.  Today Kurt is well known as a wealth of knowledge. His extensive private collection includes in chronological order....the Johnny Zaro 40 Merc Coupe(Barris), the Tony Paisano/Herb Ogden 1941 Buick Roadmaster Conv (Barris); the Buddy Alcorn 50 Merc (Barris); the Sam Barris 50 Buick; the Milton Melton 54 Cadillac Eldorado (Parisienne); the Rod and Custom Dream Truck a 50 Chevy Pick up; the Harry Westergard 41 Caddy Conv (which was a feature car at the 2008 SLEDS IN SEPTEMBER event) and last but not least the Doc Wetzel 32 Channeled Roadster.
