Speaking of Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, there's a feature on him in the March 1963 Customs Illustrated magazine.

Roth's custom designs were even crazier than I realized. This vehicle, Roth's Rotar, is actually a kind of hovercraft with revolving rotors that elevate the car as much as six inches off the ground.

Roth is referred to as a "weirdo shirt king" because apparently he was making custome shirts at the same time he was making custom cars.

According to his bio, Roth also could make maps and was an "expert barber".

I don't know what I'd do with one but I want one all the same.
