In honor of what would have been Big Daddy's 80th B-Day on March 4th, here's a article from a 60's issue of Modern Man with some photos of him in and on the Surfite (as shown on P.237 of BOT). With his space-aged cars & crazy Hot Rod monsters, Ed, a So Cal "kid" who passed away in 2001, still inspires many artists of the recent resurgence of TIKI art.













Happy B-Day Rat Fink!

Met him years, ago. Super nice guy who seemed kinda uncomfortable with all of the attention. Rat Fink is on my bar right now!
Happy Birthday, Big! We miss ya!
