    Man am I stoked. I just won a very cool Ed Roth piece on the bay. (#110070247987) It is a can painted by big daddy April,4th 1997 at a car show. It includes pics of him actually working on the piece. I've always wanted some original Roth art and now I have some. This is gonna look killer in the HAMB room. WOOHOO.

    Good on ya Doc. I have a Rat Fink doodle on paper Ed did at a show, a pedal car, and of course the Berry Wagon that he lettered and pinstriped. There is something special about owning a piece of art from Ed Roth. Be sure to give it it's own spotlight!

    Sorry "D", I don't know how to do that. One of these days I need to spend the day with a 12 year old, so I can really see how to work a computer. If you go to ebay, you should be able to just put the number in the search and get the pic to pop up if that helps.

    When you said 'can' I was thinking the size of a soda can, not a giant trash can. That is way cool and I love how it is totally covered, not just some quicky on one side. You know he put plenty of time into it to get it where it is. Nice snag, and no I didn't look at the price!
