“Relative to the model world, the author does an impressive and exacting job…this book is as unique, as was Roth himself…this is a ‘cookbook’ for anyone who dares (who would?) fabricate a second replica of Mysterion…hats off to Mr. Jones for what he’s done in bringing back to life a truly unique one-off vehicle that has become a legendary part of American culture”—SAH Journal “Jones explains the details of every significant construction step…His ship knowledge is limitless and amazing, and he explains thing in plain English”—The Hemmings Daily “An intensely detailed account…a monumental task”—Street Rodder “YOUR BOOK! WOW! Thanks for all you’ve done for Ed Roth and his friends. What great words, photos, drawings, story book! It really is! You’re like Ed, a Game Changer. It is a great surprise book!”—A. M. Koveleski, legendary race driver, Auto World mail order entrepreneur, and close friend of Ed Roth “Thanks for a great book on a great car built by a great guy!”—Bob Larivee Sr., legendary car show promoter, one-time owner of Mysterion, and close friend of Ed Roth “As a ’60’s showcar enthusiast, I was blown away by the details revealed by Mr. Jones’ research of the iconic Ed Roth creation. I thought I had seen all published info on the car; he came up with so much of which I was not aware. Who knew (or remembered) that the car was not featured inside Rod and Custom Magazine (only shown on the cover). The legend is larger than the car (and its coverage). But beyond the fascinating story, Mr. Jones has written the textbook for “Joe Average” to use when he decides to build a complete car from scratch! His determination and innovation are right up there with the best pro’s in the hot rod field. If you are into all things Roth, this is a must for your library.”—Tom Davison, Shepherd of Mysterion show car during last few months of existence Ed "Big Daddy" Roth (1932-2001) was a phenomenon. His body of work is still discussed in hot rodding, fine arts and pop culture circles and his cult following remains as devoted as it was during his career. His 1963 Mysterion show car--featuring two big-block Ford V8s--was his masterpiece and the story of its rise and brief existence is legendary. Though it was immortalized as a popular plastic model kit and is featured on several websites, little is known about Roth's magnum opus. There are a number of fanciful stories of its demise--mostly fiction. Combining history and shop class, this book provides a full investigation of Mysterion--both the legend and the machine itself. Drawing on interviews, magazine articles, photos, models and other (sometimes obscure) sources, the author pieces together the true story of the car, while documenting his own faithful bolt-by-bolt recreation of Mysterion.

Creating The Future

Conceived as a challenge to long-standing conventional wisdom, Creating the Future is a work of social history/cultural criticism that examines the premise that the progress of art in Los Angeles ceased during the 1970s—after the decline of the Ferus Gallery, the scattering of its stable of artists (Robert Irwin, Ed Kienholz, Ed Moses, Ed Rusha and others), and the economic struggles throughout the decade—and didn’t resume until sometime around 1984 when Mark Tansey, Alison Saar, Judy Fiskin, Carrie Mae Weems, David Salle, Manuel Ocampo, among others became stars in an exploding art market. However, this is far from the reality of the L.A. art scene in the 1970s. The passing of those fashionable 1960s-era icons, in fact, allowed the development of a chaotic array of outlandish and independent voices, marginalized communities, and energetic, sometimes bizarre visions that thrived during the stagnant 1970s. Fallon’s narrative describes and celebrates, through twelve thematically arranged chapters, the wide range of intriguing artists and the world—not just the objects—they created. He reveals the deeper, more culturally dynamic truth about a significant moment in American art history, presenting an alternative story of stubborn creativity in the face of widespread ignorance and misapprehension among the art cognoscenti, who dismissed the 1970s in Los Angeles as a time of dissipation and decline. Coming into being right before their eyes was an ardent local feminist art movement, which had lasting influence on the direction of art across the nation; an emerging Chicano Art movement, spreading Chicano murals across Los Angeles and to other major cities; a new and more modern vision for the role and look of public art; a slow consolidation of local street sensibilities, car fetishism, gang and punk aesthetics into the earliest version of what would later become the “Lowbrow” art movement; the subversive co-opting, in full view of Pop Art, of the values, aesthetics, and imagery of Tinseltown by a number of young and innovative local artists who would go on to greater national renown; and a number of independent voices who, lacking the support structures of an art movement or artist cohort, pursued their brilliant artistic visions in near-isolation. Despite the lack of attention, these artists would later reemerge as visionary signposts to many later trends in art. Their work would prove more interesting, more lastingly influential, and vastly more important than ever imagined or expected by those who saw it or even by those who created it in 1970’s Los Angeles. Creating the Future is a visionary work that seeks to recapture this important decade and its influence on today’s generation of artists.
