Authors: Ed "Big Daddy" Roth and Tony Thacker

From the mind of Mr. Gasser himself, with behind-the-scenes pictures from his own files, comes the story of the life and times and art of this icon of hot rodding and visionary of Kustom Kulture. Since Ed "Big Daddy" Roth first told his tale, a whole new generation has discovered the creator of Rat Fink, Beatnik Bandit, and Mysterion-and this now-classic illustrated autobiography gives new and old fans alike a look into the shop and studio. "The Salvador Dali of the movement," Tom Wolfe called him, "a surrealist in his designs, a showman by temperament, a prankster"-and Roth's larger-than-life personality comes across here as he tells how he arrived at his famous "plaster and fiberglass" method of constructing his sculptures on wheels (It could be done "by people with little or no talent and I had both," as he put it.) and shows off some of his more outlandish models. A fitting tribute to an outlaw legend, this book brings Big Daddy's work to wild and wonderful life, and lets us hear the mans incomparable voice one more time.
