Legendary painter, show rod builder and restorer Fritz Schenck of Kansas City, Missouri has teamed up with illustrator Jimmy Smith, and is currently building a new fiberglass Bubble Top show rod called "The Baja Bandito". Based on Jimmy's drawings, the car is built upon a VW drive line with a super bell axle up front, a 1950 Mercury steering box, and a bunch of other cast off junkyard parts. Its being built in the timeless Ed Roth tradition of plaster spit wads & hand rolled fiberglass.[1]
