Beatnik Bandit Custom Hot Rod Ed Big Daddy


In this video from The National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green KY I check out the Ed “Big Daddy” Roth exhibit. This exhibit was there for a few months and I was blessed enough to catch it in the last week it was there.

Ed “Big Daddy” Roth was known as a custom car designer from back in the 60’s but what I found out was the Ed was a artist and used the Automobile as His canvas. The Beatnik Bandit that is featured in this video is one of His works of art.

The Beatnik Bandit uses some commercially made parts but most of it is from the mind of Ed “Big Daddy” Roth and created with His hands.When You go to a large indoor Custom Car Show today and see all those crazy builds.


Some where inspired by builds like the Beatnik Bandit. Capturing Custom Car History like this Ed “Big Daddy” Roth display from the National Corvette Museum is just one of the many cool things I get to do with ScottieDTV.Hope You enjoy it.Check it out!
