    This has the makings of an "E True Hollywood Story" Can't wait to see that bugger back in action, I love old show cars.

    Hey Denise are we sure the new owner ISN'T Dave Shuten and he is trying to throw people off of his path!?!

    If Dave is involved in this at all the car will be as faithful a restoration as Roth did originally. Daves work is REALLY nice and the attention to detail is incredible.

    Do we know exactly what city in Mexico? Seems like if it were in TJ, somebody would have found it before now... anyway, it's cool to find it again!
  8. Wow. what a find. It's a good thing that the new owner likes mexican porn or it could have never been found.

    cool find.....
    i wonder what it would bring on ebay..... hahaha......
  10. Evidently you can't make this stuff up. Perfectly flavored turn of events.

    Just the the right shade of weird.

    I'm glad it's in the hands of someone who is hot for it. I love Roth's cars but I don't think I'd want to be restoring one.

    :D I'm glad the car has been found and will be restored its a piece of car show history. I've never been a big fan of Roth's but his cars have a place in the spot light.

    It's probably in the smut shop being used as a condom dispenser.

    Yeah, I'd like to know WHICH smut shop in Mexico it was, I've been to all of 'em.

    Seriously, what city? The valve covers, carbs, gas pedal, etc.?! Come on!

    Something fishy here and it's not the stench from the Porn-o-rama.
  14. I would take the entire diorama just as it sits and duplicate it in the Petersen museum.
    What a mystique that photo has.
  15. Ohhhhh...... yeaaaaaah.....

    Mexico.... In front of the porn shop.....

    Now I remember......... :rolleyes:

    Who knows how long the car actually sat in front of the porn shop..??

    I agree, it is very odd that those cool, very easily removed parts, are still on the car!

    Great find, no matter what....

    Texas? How, where did you see that? I looked the pics over hard and can't tell Texas anywhere. I could tell that the "at the border" pic they are driving a Texas Registed truck because of the blue backing on the registration sticker in the windshield, but thats it.
    And all bordertowns all look the same. That looks like any street in Matamoras or Tijauna.
    If its in Tejas very cool.

    This is just too cool...please keep us updated.
  29. if the car was a promotional gimmick,who were they trying to entice into the store...
    and the list is....
    big daddys
    aliens... any version
    car nuts
    oxy morons-read porn?
    hot rodders

    did they list it on local sightseeing maps?
    does it have a clear mexican title?
    is it a clone?
    have any dna tests been done?
