Object Lesson: The ‘Big Daddy’ Roth car that was lost, then found

la-et-cam-object-lesson-big-daddy-roth-car-was-002

Every car has a story. But few are as good as the one surrounding “The Orbitron,” the space-age ride created in 1964 by California’s most renowned custom car builder, Ed “Big Daddy” Roth.

The car had an electric-blue asymmetrical body that sported a bubble-shaped roof. The interiors consisted of sky-blue shag (known colloquially as “monkey fur”). Just under the dash, it featured a full-blown color television — presumably so that the driver could stay up on all the telenovelas while sitting in rush-hour traffic.

Mustang Madness Weekend – Ponies on Parade at Petersen Auto Museum

SoCal enthusiasts enjoy a great day of sun and Mustang fun at LA’s Petersen Museum

If you were to ask someone the question, “what is the automotive capital of the United States?” most people would answer, “Detroit,” as it’s the home of the “Big 3” US car makers (Brand X, Brand X-2 and Ford), and city that’s recognized as the Mecca of the automotive industry.

While that answer certainly gets no argument from us, there’s also a lot that definitely can be said about Southern California; the area ranging from Los Angeles to San Diego. We consider this to be a leading car territory as well, because with its year-‘round sunny skies and warm temperatures, SoCal is a perfect place for car enthusiasts—especially Mustang enthusiasts—to live and fully enjoy all of the many facets of the automotive lifestyle.

MSN Auto Selects the 1969 Ford Mach IV “Four-Engine” Mustang as one of the best of SEMA

449bf9f4d43e4bf4b9d8584f86ac9211

Galpin Ford has been building and customizing unique one-off vehicles for years, and this is an early example of the company’s creative genius. As the name says, this dragster — built by Gary Weckesser — is powered by four V8 engines. Based on a 1969 Ford Mustang funny car, this dragster was quite popular on the show circuit from 1969 to 1975. But it wasn’t simply a show car; its four engines put out an estimated 3000 horsepower. The Mach IV could hit a quarter-mile in around seven seconds at a speed of 180 mph.

The Back-Up Pickup Wheelstander Recreation Debuts at SEMA 2013

Bam! Direct from the glory days of drag-racing exhibitionists comes this recreation of the wheelstanding Back-Up Pickup. We first brought this to you in a news item when the truck was under construction, and now Dave Shuten at Galpin Auto Sports has the project complete and on display at the 2013 SEMA Show. He cranked out the complete buildup in 12 weeks, but now will be slowed down repairing a gack in the front corner of the truck by the delivery van that shipped it to Las Vegas. At the show, we had the chance to hang out with builder Shuten and with Ed Justice Jr., whose company Justice Bros. was a major sponsor of the truck when it was new. So was Galpin Ford, from 1969 to 1971, hence the connection to Galpin Auto Sports.

Hyundai, GAS And The Walking Dead Bring Fan-Designed Zombie Survival Machine To Life

Zombies beware! Hyundai will welcome the newest addition to its zombie-fighting family at New York Comic-Con: Anson Kuo’s Santa Fe Zombie Survival Machine. Aimed at effective undead annihilation, the fan-built vehicle will be on display for the living on the show floor on October 10.

“Having Anson’s winning design on display at New York Comic-Con is a fun way to celebrate The Walking Dead’s 10th anniversary,” said Robert Kirkman.

As part of The Walking Dead Chop Shop configurator app designed by Hyundai and INNOCEAN USA (launched during San Diego Comic-Con), fans have designed thousands of custom zombie survival machines using the Hyundai Veloster Turbo, Santa Fe or Elantra. This summer, Kuo’s Santa Fe design was picked as the winner out of more than 82,500 fan submissions. His winning vehicle was constructed by Galpin Auto Sports (GAS) and the real-life machine will be unveiled on the New York Comic-Con show floor on October 10 at the Future US booth.

Kuo, who hails from Arizona, created an urban camouflaged Zombie Survival Machine featuring: knife blades, an automatic crossbow, razor-wired windows, three machine guns, a samurai sword, aluminum armor and a muffler silencer. His mission was to create a stealthy vehicle with abundant cargo space for supplies and passengers, maximizing survivability against the undead. Having knives as a primary weapon ensures scarce ammunition is conserved, said Kuo. This Hyundai will be a true zombie obliterator.

“We love Anson Kuo’s take on this Santa Fe Zombie Survival Machine – it’s creative… and deadly,” said Steve Shannon, vice president, Marketing, Hyundai Motor America. “With help from the popularity of The Walking Dead franchise, Hyundai continues to expand the conversation around Hyundai vehicles with young and passionate audiences.”

At San Diego Comic-Con in July, Hyundai unveiled a customized Veloster Zombie Survival Machine designed by Robert Kirkman and fabricated by GAS.

You Rank It: Galpin Gasser

HRDP-131200-BUCK-01-623x398

Built by Galpin Auto Sports’ Sales Manager Steve Carpenter, the Galpin Gasser III is a throwback to the original low-buck hot rod. Located in Los Angeles, Galpin Ford is one of the oldest dealerships in the country and its custom shop is Galpin Auto Sports (GAS).

Steve started off with a Custom Tudor Sedan (Ford’s lowest trim level) he snagged of eBay and then added a modern 302 bored to 331 ci and topped with tunnel ram manifold with dual quads; the exhaust is routed through custom fenderwell headers. A Borg-Warner four-speed manual puts all 500+ horses down on the pavement via 4.11 gears in a nine-inch Currie rear. And the front? That’s what a gasser is all about, so you’ll find a 1950s Ford truck straight axle lending to the Custom’s characteristic rake.
