Rice by Roth !

The madcap masterpieces by Ed 'Big Daddy' Roth are well known in the world of hot rods . Vehicles such as the Beatnik Bandit and the Orbitron as well as his cartoon creation 'Rat Fink' are well documented by magazine and world wide web .

However , it's not such common knowledge that he was also a fan of early Honda's , his little N600 and first gen Civic are both shown here ( along with a few of his other offbeat creations )

Rice powered rods ...

Here's a couple of Hot Rods with some oriental seasoning . The gloss black deuce is powered by a modern Lexus V8 whereas the satin black speedster is powered by a Datsun 260z inline 6 motor . Dare to be different !
