Ed Roth Dealings

I've always been intrigued by the old Monster airbrushed t-shirts and the fact this one is screened on is super cool!

These two photos above through me off a bit as I had thought this car had always been called the Outlaw, unless it was the Excalibur and changed to the Outlaw for the Revell model kit. If anybody knows the real story please feel free to post the facts! (all pictures from the 1959 Griffith Borgenson Hot Rods Book)

The orange and black Baes jacket was sold about 1 month ago as I needed money for my motorcycle project.

I meant Bates. I need to learn how to spell.

Ed Roth first called the car Excalibur, but later changed it to Outlaw. It was by a friend's recommendation that general public would not easily remember the name. Something like that. Ed Roth mentioned the story in one of his interviews (can't remember off the top of my head).
