"ED "BIG DADDY" ROTH" 1936 -2001 These are some of Ed's creations that were displayed at the Pontiac Rock'n'Rods show in 2005. This I believe was the largest display of his rides ever assembled for one show in the Mid-west. Unfortunately these images were downloaded from a video camera so the quality is not very good. ******************************************
