You probably have to be an artist or a classic car guy to really dig this book, but I happen to be both, so I loved it!! The history of "Big Daddy" Ed Roth & Rat Fink was absolutely fascinating to me. This was the man who invented Fiberglass. Think about that....he was even more than an accomplished artist and cartoonist. He built some of the wildest cars ever seen, like THE OUTLAW, ORBITRON, and THE BEATNIK BANDIT. Ed Roth passed away awhile back, but one of his sons still tours the big car ...more

I've been on a bit of an Ed "Big Daddy" Roth kick of late and this is the first of 3 books about the man and his art that I've tracked down and am reading and I have to say it was a fantastic read. It's jam packed with reproductions of his bizarre lowbrow monster art and ahead-of-their-time custom cars, recommended for fans of either.
