The only down side to the cars is:
The paint is not cracking anywhere on the body.
The nose cone under the front end has a dent, but you can't see it unless you put your head under the car.
The underneath of the car is chrome and needs to be cleaned up better.
The paint under the car has chipped away a little from driving.
The license plate holder doesn't go down electronically anymore the motor burned out.
There are no windshield wipers on the car.
The bugs think it is a big flower.

1937 Chevy Slantback and in 2000, at Hot August nights in the parking lot of the Atlantis Casino my husband and myself had the experience of our lives, Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, waved us over at a car show. He told us he liked the Dolly Pardon heads lights and yellow was his favorite color (yellow is the color of the car). My husband's birthday had just passed and I asked him if he would paint a picture on the car for Danny's birthday. He told us he didn't have any paints but to come back the next day. With great excitement we went back the next day for our big adventure and true to his word "Big Daddy Roth" painted a Rat Fink holding a birthday cake on the back on the 37. We have been told this is the last painting "Big Daddy Roth" painted on a car before he passed away.

Last year a good friend of Roth's posted a picture a on Facebook showing him sitting studiously next to Roth as he painted my car. During this magically event, I carefully documented each picture in detail as Roth created his magic on the 37. Roth's wife, Ilene, was with him the day he painted my car and we sent her pictures for her museum in Utah. My husband has since passed away and I can imagine Roth and Danny having many hot rod discussions up in Heaven!

On one of the Pickers shows it showed Mike purchasing a motorcycle put together by Von Dutch and then given to Ed Roth and the title of the motorcycle was in the Ed Roth's name. My dream is to have the vehicle with Roth's painting placed in a museum where it can be viewed by the public and appreciated by those who would have an opportunity to view a an old classic car with an rare Roth painting.
If you know someone that may be interested in purchasing my car, I would ask that you share this information with them. Thank you kindly for taking the time to read my note, view the pictures, and possibly forwarding this information onto someone that may want a piece of history.
