This car is the personal car to ED ;BIG DADDY; ROTH. By the early 1960s there were very few ;car crazy; teenagers in the world who hadnt heard of Ed ;Big Daddy Roth.; Roth was a larger than life character whose cars dazzled you by their wild lines, colors and chrome. He was as much an artist as a hot rodder. Roths first hot rod was a 1933 Ford Coupe he painted in his parents driveway with his mothers vacuum cleaner as a teenager. Going to high school in the late forties in California everybody had a hot rod and Roth wanted the best. ;Big Daddy; went on to create such memorable rods and rolling sculptures as the Outlaw, Beatnik Bandit, Rotar, Tweedy Pie, Mysterion, Orbitron, Wishbone, Fang and the Druid Princess. Although Roth loved typical rods he also liked the unusual in his personal everyday kind of cars. He fell in love with the new Kaiser Henry J, but soon removed the ;hump; from the grille. After getting out of the air force he couldnt keep-up with the payments and bought a 1948 Ford sedan. It was soon painted with signage advertising his painting skills in pin striping, flames, scalloping, etc.This rolling advertising became part of Roths way of life owning various vehicles over the years. Roth bought a new red 1970 Honda 600 Coupe which was quickly painted to promote Roths skills. The tiny Coupe performed yeoman duty over the next few years before being replaced by a series of Honda Civics. As well as being used for advertising the diminutive Honda hauled VW trike bodies and parts on a regular basis. A rarely seen microcar in its own right, this small slice of Americana will draw crowds wherever it goes. Recently this car sold for nearly $60,000.
