The Marshall Tripp Photo Collection
Marshall Tripp worked for Larry Watson at Watson's Custom Auto Painting between 1966 and 1967. At the shop, Marshall did paint prep, sanding, and masking. In 2011 Marshall told Kustomrama that he used to take Larry places to pick up a car; "Especially to Peter Satori Rolls Royce in Pasadena." At the time Marshall drove a flamed 1951 Chevrolet Fleetline. Marshall got the car in the spring of 1965, and he painted flames on it right after he got it. It was his first flame paint job, so he was pretty proud when Watson told him that he liked the flames. In 1967 Marshall was drafted into the Army, and he was sent to Vietnam.
Before Marshall got drafted he helped Larry Watson clean out of his old office at 14903 Lakewood Blvd, as he had recently moved down to the corner of Lakewood and Artesia. Marshall put hundred of pictures and items in boxes that Larry gave him. Marshall kept on to everything all these years, and he has now scanned and shared the photos in the collection with Kustomrama. We will present the photos on this page, along with stories from Marshall. Many of these photos are also advertised for sale on ebay, so be sure to check out his items and add Marshall to your favorite seller list.
