Show Time '67 Annual - Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, George Barris, Dean Jeffries & Others


In December of 1966 this touring auto show came to the Houston Colisseum. Although it is not featured in this catalog, the Batmobile was there also. I wanted to see it, and my father actually took me. My brother and mother were probably there too, but I don't remember for sure. I was 7. Just another treasured item I have managed to hang onto all these years. For more awesome Kustom Kar Kulture, check out The Magnetic Brain. For awesome Hot Rod & Surf music to go with all this stuff, check out The Black Sea Surfer.

Prof.: Oh, Lord! Ed "Big Daddy" Roth! As a kid, I collected a whole line of his characters cast in plastic - all those hands clutching impossibly high gear shifts. Hot Damn! There was always something nearly intimidating about his drawing (and style) that I loved. Thanks for the blast!

Bad ass stuff!

I wonder if anyone still has (and wears) their loud flourescent custom airbrushed monster ROACH shirt?

Very cool! It's great that you've kept this for all these years. I'm a hot rodder at heart. One of my sites is classicdragsters.com. I've got some photos of a Starbird show. I know it's not dragsters, but I love the wild customs also.
