If you grew up in the 60's and were into the car crazy culture of that era, you would have definitely known about Ed "Big Daddy" Roth. Ed Roth was a hot rodder, custom car builder, artist and entrepreneur who drew monster cartoon creatures that drove hot rod cars. His custom cars were reproduced into model car kits that sold in the millions. His line of custom themed T-Shirts like his "Rat Fink" designs were mass produced and were extremely popular. His style of cartoon drawing is today an icon--instantly recognizable. In fact, many consider his designs to be fine art.
