Hot Rods by Ed "Big Daddy" Roth
This entertaining color photo history of Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, the mad-cap artist and custom car maker, contains photographs from Ed's personal collection, from co-workers and friends, and from magazine files. Ed tells the story -- in his own inimitable style -- of such creations as "Rat Fink" and cars like The Outlaw, Beatnik Bandidt, Druid Princess, Surfite, Road Agent and Mysterion. Recollections from past co-workers and collaborators including Robert Williams, Dirty Doug, Fritz Voight, George Barris, Bob Larivee, Sr. give insight into Ed Roth and his wacky and innovative cars.
