other extreme characters. As a custom car builder, Roth was a key
Bell High School, where his classes included auto shop and art.
Roth is best known for his grotesque caricatures — typified by
Rat Fink — depicting imaginative, outsized monstrosities driving
representations of the hot rods he and his contemporaries built.
He is less well known for his innovative work in turning hot
rodding from crude backyard engineering where performance was the
bottom line into a refined artform where aesthetics were equally
important, breaking new ground with Fibreglass bodywork.
Numerous artists were associated with Roth, including painter
Fiorilla, who illustrated Roth's catalogs.
Known as Mr. Gasser to the hot-rodding community, Roth was
active in the field of counterculture art and hot-rodding his
entire adult life. At the time of his death in 2001, he was
working on an innovative hot-rod project involving a compact car
planned as a radical departure from the dominant "tuner"
performance modification style.
