❦ Tweedy Pie - Classic hot rod designs of the by California’s doyen of the Kustom Kulture movement, Ed “Big Daddy” Roth.

Ed "Big Daddy" Roth (March 4, 1932 – April 4, 2001) was an artist, cartoonist, pinstriper and custom car designer and builder who created the hot-rod icon Rat Fink and other extreme characters. Roth was a key figure in Southern California's Kustom Kulture and hot-rod movement of the late 1950s and 1960s.      I saw this car at the National Automobile Museum, Reno, Nevada

It's Ed "Big Daddy" Roth's Beatnik Bandit! Saw it at a car show when I was a kid and built the Monogram model kit - twice. Best kustom kar EVER. I think this shot may be at the Peterson museum in LA.

...As Tony Ivo explained, the Hot Rod, with top up looked "like an outhouse on wheels." And so came the crescent moon cut-out window came to be.
