Wishbone Custom Rod Ed "Big Daddy Roth" Exhibit Custom Car History National Corvette Museum
In this video from the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green KY, I check out Ed "Big Daddy" Roth's One Off Custom Hot Rod "Wishbone" that was displayed there...Wishbone was part of a exhibit that the National Corvette Museum had highlighting some of Ed "Big Daddy" Roth's builds along with some other items that where part of Ed Roth's Custom Car building career...Wishbone has a interesting history...Like most of Ed's creations...Wishbone was built just so that it would be licensed as a model, The problem is that Revell didn't like it...They said it was going to be to hard to reproduce in scale of a plastic model kit....So Ed cut it up and threw it in the trash...One of His employees saved the pieces and at some point sold them to someone else... They put the car back together this is the recreated Ed "Big Daddy" Roth's Wishbone...See back in the day Ed built these crazy creations so that Revell could make models and He could use them on the t-shirts that He painted...After they has been out awhile and people had seen them...They would tear the cars apart and build something new with the parts...Unlike today when high end custom cars are built...Shown and driven...Most of the custom cars from back in the day where not road worthy.. They didn't have to be...They were strictly show cars...I love custom cars and trucks, and to be able to capture custom car history is so cool and such a honor for me...I hope you enjoy this video of Ed "Big Daddy" Roth's Mysterion from the National Corvette Museum...Check it out!!!
