    Love to see the build thread on this. Lots of indoor time in the cool north end during the long months.

    The bubble cleaned up nice, was that painted on, or a big sticker, or? I'd probably leave it alone, the paint and upholstery look to be in great shape. How does it steer, is it driveable?

    It doesnt steer sharp enough to drive. but it does run. the pacman on the bubble was painted on, I sanded it off down to 3000 grit then polished it. came out pretty good

    Any one have any pics of Roth's 56 ford shop truck, I know it wasn't a show car but I'm building a model of it and I have only found 2 pics.
    By the way great thread!

    Go to this thread;
    http://www.jalopyjournal.com/?p=1836

    And the second clip features some brief footage of Roth picking up a trophy in the truck. But do yourself a favour and watch all three clips, they are out of this world:cool:.

    Alright Mr. Moriarty, what do you do for a livin to afford all of these beautiful cars? No seriously. I am thinkin that building cars for a living might be the wrong route!
     
  27. Where was it listed ?
