My thoughts on Ed Roth

When I was a young teenager growing up in the midst of the world of hot rods, and Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, I became influenced by both.
I loved the way he drew his creations with a flair that thumbed his nose at conventional styled art.
He may not of been the most stylish artist but sure was the most humorist of all hot rod artists.
I praise the man for influencing the many of us who loved and appreciated his work.
I know of the many times I drew similar designs on shirts for friends and associates. Created a few of my own "Monsters" behind the wheels of various hot rods, from street machines to Gassers. I still love to draw those things that extracts the "Rebel" in me.
Of all the artists who draw cars, many are influenced in some way or another to the talent of that man.
I had a friend who knew Roth on a personal basis, now both have passed to the great beyond.
I am sure he is sorely missed... but I am glad to grown up with an appreciation of this kind of art.

Thanks for sharing Rubiarm,
It's true, Big Daddy's art was much more than just cartoons of hotrods. It would have to be in order to instill memories that transcend decades. I read the funnies as a kid- but I honestly can't remember a single comic strip that inspired me so much- that I actually remember the first time I saw it.

And this ones for lowroller:
Do you mean this Jim Oddy?

Yes- he won (1968)

THAT Jim Oddy

i went to his shop for the first time because at that time on that day, it was the nearest performance / race shop open to answer a simple cylinder head question... he answered it in about 10 seconds, 3 of those seconds were the actual answer, the other 7 was slightly related info that he wanted me to know. we talked for another 90 minutes. i seriously learned a years worth of stuff in that 90 minutes, no doubt about it

youd think i threw a 10 million dollars in cash on the counter and said "you have 90 minutes to teach me everything possible"

It's amazing what happens when we talk to someone who has accomplished a great deal within a specific venue; especially if we are interested in that same topic. We go about our journey, learning, inventing and overcoming various issues, some self-imposed, and some not. During this adventure, we begin to see ourselves a certain way. We begin to gain confidence through our trials. Over time, our knowledge begins to grow, and with that, wisdom becomes a part of our intellectual toolbox, as it relates to what ever that aforementioned venue is. Eventually, we actually begin to feel like somewhat of an "expert" in that particular field. We realize we don't know everything, granted;there is always something new to learn, but we feel proud of ourselves, regarding all of the information that we do know. Then we meet someone, much like your meeting with Jim Oddy-and find out that we really don't know *****! I have been there my friend.-It's exciting, and humbling at the same time. Those are memories!

RE Ed Roth

Back in the early 60s, Ed was a special guest at a custom show in Chicago. I convinced my late dad to take me and a friend, and he did. While crusing the aisles we came upon Ede. with my Brownie I took a picture of Ed, who was wearing his trademark top hat, with his arm around my dad's shopuld. The look on my dad's face is priceless. I still have the photo and plan to blow it up and put it up with my other nostagia photos

That's a great story Bernard,
You wouldn't happen to have a way of posting that photo would you? I would absolutely love to see it.
