What better way to celebrate the coming of open-road season than with a vintage hot rod tee from nopooh’s Rods collection?
(Vocus/PRWEB) March 01, 2011
Ed ‘Big Daddy’ Roth brilliantly elevated customized hot rods to a refined counterculture art form. Roth was a gifted outsider artist and innovator whose iconoclastic work commands increasing respect from every generation that discovers it. The creator of the Orbitron and the Mysterion is a hero to legions of hot-rod aficionados around the world. His bubble-topped, slingshot dragster style creations spun doughnuts around the prevailing automotive culture of the 1960s. In turn, nopooh elevates the classic hot-rod inspired graphic tee from its lowly status as an ink-soaked polishing rag to a work of graphic art suitable for framing, but infinitely cooler when worn.
March is tune-up, get the wheels ready for spring month. What better way to celebrate the coming of open-road season than with a vintage hot rod tee from nopooh’s Rods collection? The iconic “Draggin’” tee is an homage to the '60s southern California Kustom Kulture art movement spearheaded by Roth. Tune up the spring wardrobe along with the engine with the clean, retro look of Viper Lamps or Diablo. Customize a look with vintage inspired Chrome Prowler or Tiger Brand accessory tees.
