ED 'BIG DADDY" ROTH'S YELLOW FANG


Hey Ed "Big Daddy" Roth Drag Racing Fans!!!!!!
Here's a real boss shot of Ed's "Yellow Fang" in 1966.
This shot was taken by Mike and Carol Algire of the Standard 1320 Drag Racing Group.
The body was made of aluminum and took Tom Hanna six months to complete.
Steve Swaja designed the car and the chassis was built by Jim Davis.
