1965 Ford Van TV Commercial with Buster Keaton

Came across this 1965 Ford Van commercial while doing the van artwork. It stars Buster Keaton who is one of the great comic actors.

 

 

Buster Keaton did a lot of great work but the movie that comes to mind when I hear his name is the movie Beach Blanket Bingo. I guess the reason I remember that one is because all the Ed Roth references with the hillbilly helmets and monster shirts. I found this image on Pinterest of Buster wearing a SurFink shirt.

 

Fink Model Kits For The Petersen Museum

My friend Weldon just completed building twelve of Ed “Big Daddy” Roth’s Revell’s Fink Model Kits for the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, California.

It’s amazing the detail he puts into these kits. You can see images of all twelve in the Finkster Forum on EdRothWorld.com.

Weldon has also put together a poster made up of photos of these models. He sent me one and they are really cool! Check out his Ebay auction.

Remembering Ed “Big Daddy” Roth

Ed “Big Daddy” Roth left us on this day (April 4th) back in 2001.

I got to meet and work with him around 1999-2000. The time I spent with him was like a dream come true.

I like this video about how and where they found his Orbitron show car. See the article “The Saga Ed Roth’s Long Lost Orbitron” for more on this story.
