Ed "Big Daddy" Roth's "MYSTERION" clone.
So I am friends with the nice fellow on Facebook, Mr Jeffery Jones, he's from California and has almost the same fascination with crazy Ed Roth show rods as I do and Im guessing a lot of you out there, there is one special car he thinks is the Rat Finks knees and thats the twin engine show rod sensation "Mysterion" some of you know and some of you may not know that I painted and pinstriped the clone that Dave Shuten built in the early 2000's that now sits in the Galpin Ford show room. Its a great Car but Jeffery's "Mysterion" is better, way Better! how so you may ask, It took him a long, long time to build this car. I remember it from at least 10 plus years ago, seeing pics on the internet and such, His "Mysterion" is more "SPOT ON" then the Galpin car. its in the details, the subtle little thing that unless you are really, really, really into this stuff probably wouldn't notice, if I had to pick one to be the best representation of true to Ed Roth's original car I would have to go with Jeff's "Mysterion" he has written a book about his car building adventure that you can buy offline called "Ed Roth's Mysterion" search for it on Amazon, it sells for $35.00 bucks, I need to get a copy myself. one thing Id like to point out is that It took Jeff sometime from start to finish to get this Fantastic Show Rod done! don't give up on your project! get off the couch and turn off the TV, Gilligan never gets off the Island gang! Get out in the garage and build something BUILD!!!!!!!!! -- FRITZ
