6th Annual Greenville Graffiti Car Show will be Saturday, June 17, 2017
Greg Brady & Eugene Felsnic At Car Show
Posted on: March 17, 2017 by greenville admin
A teen heart-throb from the early 1970s and an actor who specialized in playing nerds will be signing autographs this summer at the 6th Annual Greenville Graffiti Car Show in Greenville, Illinois...
Barry Williams, who starred as Greg Brady on the legendary comedy TV series The Brady Bunch, and Eddie Deezen, who played Eugene Felsnic in Grease and Grease 2, will appear at the show on Saturday, June 17. Their appearance continues a Greenville Graffiti Car Show tradition of featuring celebrities.
“These actors played wildly different characters,” observed John Goldsmith, car show chairman. “But The Brady Bunch and Grease have such devoted followings. I think Barry and Eddie will draw a diverse crowd to this year’s show.”
Williams portrayed the Greg, the eldest Brady son, from 1969 to 1974. However, the show has lived on in syndication for generations to enjoy. He has guested on scores of television shows including Dragnet, Adam-12, Mission: Impossible, and Murder She Wrote. After the success of The Brady Bunch, Williams transitioned to musical theater and in recent years has performed regularly in Branson, MO.
Along with his work in Grease and its sequel, Deezen played Herbie the aspiring ventriloquist in Steven Spielberg’s film 1941. He also co-starred in War Games and did voice-over work for The Polar Express and the animated series Dexter’s Laboratory.
“We’ve been considering several celebrities for this year’s Greenville Graffiti Car Show,” explained Randy Alderman, Greenville Chamber of Commerce vice president. “I feel we’ve assembled a group that offer something for everyone.”
Williams and Deezen join Tyler Dale from American Restoration, who had been announced earlier. Tentatively the celebrities will be signing autographs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, June 17. Another car show tradition is the Friday night question/answer program with the celebrities. Additional details will be announced in the near future on that event.
The Greenville Graffiti Car Show, co-sponsored by the Greenville Chamber of Commerce and Greenville Tourism, has become one of the premier shows in the St. Louis area. Last year over 230 vintage cars and trucks participated.

Tyler Dale, who got his start on the TV show American Restoration on the History Channel, will be one of the celebrities appearing at the 6th Annual Greenville Graffiti Car Show in Greenville, Illinois. He is best known for his bicolor blond/brown hair and his fierce demonstration in the shop from management to hands on practice...
Tyler has experience in many skills, doing everything from welding to plasma cutting to reverse engineering of machinery. When he is not working on restorations, Tyler also does metal fabrication. He loves to “make something from nothing.” Creating and designing is his forte.
“We’re excited to bring Tyler to the Greenville Graffiti Car Show,” said John Goldsmith, event chairman. “Our committee members have wanted to host someone with Tyler’s passion for cars. We’ve brought several Hollywood legends here in the past like James Best, Donna Douglas and cast members from American Graffiti, The Munsters, and Happy Days. Tyler is going to be a popular guest with our diehard car fans.”
Tyler loves working on anything old and vintage, one of his favorite aspects of working at Rick’s Restorations. In addition, he also started a business called The Tyler Dale Project (www.tylerdaleproject.com) and does appearances at venues across the country. He loves meeting fans, discussing projects, and admiring amazing cars. In his spare time, Tyler enjoys air bagging trucks, drinking specialty coffees and iced teas, and playing with his dog Ranger, a German Shepherd. He also volunteers at Vegas Shepherd Rescue in Las Vegas, Nevada, and at Camp PossAbility in Indiana.
Additional celebrities will be announced in the near future.
