You know, it's funny how time flies as you get older, but boy, in 1965, I was a kid, and I first saw ratfink illustrations of hot rods and surfing in crazy cartoon characters, and I saw one of Ed Roth's cars at the Oakland Roadster show.
Then I knew where my life was going to go and what I was going to do: I was always going to be a part of that culture of hot rods and surfing and being that character.
I've built 9 beautiful cars throughout my life. I'm on my last car now. It's a 1929 Ford Roadster. I've been surfing for 45 years. I was out surfing this morning at 6:00 a.m. and I'm 60 years old.
My point is that I AM that guy. It's funny but most people spend more than half their life figuring out what they want to do and it eludes many people anyway. I am fortunate to have figured it out from such an early age. 🙏 #edroth#ratfink#childhooddreams#hotrods#surfing#knowingyourlife
