Past Gas #192: Rat Fink: The Real Story Behind That Weird Hot Rod Art

By Donut Media

Rat Fink was artist Ed “Big Daddy” Roth’s biggest envelope-pushing creation that drove teenagers to car shows and parents up the wall. But how did a young man with no automotive engineer training, who almost flunked out of high school, make such an impact on American car design? How did he stand out in Southern California during the height of kustom kar madness? And what type of legacy can a few crude creatures really leave behind? Today on Past Gas, the gnarly life and creations of hot rod iconoclast Ed “Big Daddy” Roth. You asked for it -- and we listened. We're filming Past Gas again!
