Your family and its extended family built coaches that today, especially the early ones, would have been turned into mulch if they hadn't been designed, engineered, and built with skill and a desire to build the very best that could be built.

Barth owners are loyal to the marque simply because the Barth employees made no compromises. (Well, actually, I have a carp about the location of the rear overhead light switch...Big Grin)


MilSpec AMG 6.5L TD 230HP; built-to-order by Peninsular Engines:  Hi-pop injectors, gear-driven camshaft, non-waste-gated, high-output turbo, 18:1 pistons.  Fuel economy increased by 15-20%, power, WOW!"StaRV II"

In either case the idea is quite staggering.

The pleasure was all ours. I know we had several of the Barth Ladies show up, and one worked at the factory well past the time it was sold off to outside owners.

I remember talking to one who said she still owned a Class C Chevy Barth. Would that be you?

Thank you for attending... could you put names to the above photo? Do you have a better image than this?

Barb owns a class c, she also worked at the factory. She enjoys owning her own piece of Barth history.

Ya know, we've never had a Class C at a Florida GTG. [Hint Hint] A great looking family portrait and sorry we couldn't make it up for this one, but it looked like everyone had a great time and learned about the Barth coach first hand. Following this site has to give you an idea of the pride we have in our very unique coaches and the brotherhood we have established.
