This coming Saturday some VIP will be attending The Evanston Car show – July 22nd, 2017 right here in Evanston Wyoming.
Ed Roth’s -Wife ILENE ROTH- will be attending, She is seriously A BIG DEAL! for those of you that don;t know who ILENE Roth is, she is Ed Roths wife,who is Ed Roth?

BIG DADDY ROTH? are you serious? well let me tell you!
Jonny Pentz my oldest son, say he cannot wipe the smile off of his face, when he got confirmation- Welcome To Evanston Wyomimg ILENE ROTH wooo hooo
Ed “Big Daddy” Roth (March 4, 1932 – April 4, 2001) was an artist, cartoonist, illustrator, pinstriper and custom car designer and builder who created the hot rod icon Rat Fink and other characters. Roth was a key figure in Southern California’s Kustom Kulture and hot rod movement of the late 1950s and 1960s.
Roth is best known for his grotesque caricatures — typified by Rat Fink — depicting imaginative, out-sized monstrosities driving representations of the hot rods that he and his contemporaries built. Roth began airbrushing and selling “Weirdo” T-shirts at car shows and in the pages of Car Craft magazine as early as July 1958. By the August 1959 issue of Car Craft “Weirdo shirts” had become a full blown craze with Roth at the forefront of the movement. The article featured Roth along with fellow Kustom Kulture pioneers Dean Jeffries and Pete Millar. Inspired by Roth and Barris Kustoms (whose shirts were airbrushed by Dean Jeffries), Detroit native Stanley Miller, a.k.a. “Stanley Mouse”, began advertising his own shirts in the pages of Car Craft in January 1961. The lesser-known Rendina Studios of Detroit and Mad Mac of Cleveland also joined in on the monster “weirdo” shirt craze, but Roth was certainly the man who widely popularized the “Monsters in hot rods” art form.
In 1959 Roth created The Outlaw. This fiberglass Kustom hot rod was featured in the January 1960 issue of Car Craft. The car was covered in Car Craft and Rod and Custom, and appeared at custom car and hot rod shows. Other hot rods include The Beatnik Bandit (1961), The twin Ford engined Mysterion (1963), The Orbitron (1964), and The Road Agent (1965) among others.[2] In 1965, Roth’s surf buggy, the Surfite was featured in the film Beach Blanket Bingo starring Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello, and also in Village of the Giants, featuring Beau Bridges and Tommy Kirk. One of Roth’s personal drivers was a tangerine orange 1955 Chevy 2-door post with a Ford 406 cu. in. engine under the hood…he drove this car to his shop every day for years .
In 1962 the Revell model company began selling plastic models of Roth’s cars and from 1963 to 1965 Revell also manufactured plastic models of many of Roth’s monsters, including Rat Fink, Brother Rat Fink, Drag Nut, Mother’s Worry, Mr. Gasser and other weird creatures created by Roth. Revell continues to re-issue Roth’s Monsters and Kustom Car kits.[3]
In 1963 The Hawk Model Company issued its line of “Weird-Oh’s” plastic models and Marx Toys issued Nutty Mads, both clearly inspired by Roth’s work. Both items were quite popular in the mid-sixties and remain sought after collector’s items to this day. Hawk Models continues to re-issue its “Weird-Oh’s” periodically.[4]
Numerous artists were associated with Roth including artist David Mann, Rat Fink Comix artist R.K. Sloane, Steve Fiorilla who illustrated some of Roth’s catalogs, and most notably, Ed Newton, who worked for Roth and designed several of his cars and T-shirt designs beginning in 1964, and Kustom Kulture icon Robert Williams who began working for Roth in late 1965.
In the mid 1960s Roth began customizing motorcycles. Mainstream motorcycle magazines refused to run his articles and ads, so he started his own publication called Choppers, which featured articles on extending forks, custom sissy bars, etc. It was a small, black and white publication that ran from 1967 to 1970, and was the first magazine ever to exclusively feature custom motorcycles, or choppers.[5] Roth also built the first known VW powered trike.[2] Roth built many trikes for himself and others including Candy Wagon, California Cruiser, Secret Weapon, Rubber Ducky and The Great Speckled Bird.[2]
In 1967 Roth built the Mega Cycle, Originally named by Robert Williams, “Captain Pepi’s Motorcycle & Zeppelin Repair” was later changed to “Mega Cycle” after a strong suggestion from car show promoters. Powered by a Buick V6 engine, Mega Cycle was designed to carry Ed’s Harley XLCH. Later Ed felt that the XLCH just didn’t work and through a series of trades ended up with Bob Aquistapase’s award winning Triumph. The Mega Cycle is currently on Display at Motorcyclepedia Museum in Newburgh, NY.
In 1968 Mattel introduced Hot Wheels and Roth’s Beatnik Bandit was one of the first 16 die-cast toy cars produced by the company.[6]
From 1970 to 1975, Roth worked for Brucker’s Movie World and their “Cars of the Stars” display. Brucker said that Roth was very loyal and a very hard worker, even though he wasn’t making much money. Brucker said that when building something, Roth had a natural knack for seeing how things fit together — he would build something in a few days which would take others a couple of weeks. Although Roth was a laid-back and amiable, Brucker also remembers that Roth was a fighter and if anyone came through the museum causing trouble, Roth would put them in line. He was fearless.[7] Roth’s Druid Princess was one of the many cars displayed there. Also during the 1970s, Roth worked for Knott’s Berry Farm as a sign painter and artist. He worked there for 10 years until about 1980.[8]
In December 1977, Robert and Suzanne Williams along with Skip Barrett organized the first Rat Fink Reunion to celebrate the legacy of Roth. Rat Fink Reunions are still held to this day at the site of Roth’s final residence in Manti, Utah and near Los Angeles.
In 1993, a major exhibition was held at the Julie Rico Gallery in Santa Monica shortly after the Laguna Museum show “Kustom Kulture”. It was at this time that the low brow art movement began to take on steam. Featured in the exhibition titled, “Rat Fink Meets Fred Flypogger Meets Cootchy Cooty” were Roth, Willams, and Mouse and their creations. The L.A. Times placed Roth’s Rat Fink on the cover of the Culture section December 20, 1993 with a full article about the entire exhibition.
The Orbitron, a Roth custom car that was the subject of a number of articles in automotive enthusiast magazines (most notably, in Car Craft magazine in 1965)[9] but was feared lost in subsequent decades, was discovered in Mexico in the summer of 2008. The Orbitron was built in 1964. The car, in dilapidated, inoperative condition, had been parked for some time in front of an adult bookstore in Ciudad Juárez. The owners of the shop were also the owners of the car. It was purchased and taken back to the United States by Michael Lightbourn, an American auto restorer who did business in Mexico. The Orbitron has been restored to its original condition by Beau Boeckmann[10][11]
Roth was active in counterculture art and hot-rodding his entire adult life. At the time of his death in 2001, he was working on a hot-rod project involving a compact car planned as a departure from the dominant tuner performance modification style.[citation needed]
The year after his death, he was named as one of the “50 Who Made a Difference” at the 50th annual Meguiar’s Autorama in Detroit.[12] He was also inducted into the show’s “Circle of Champions” in 2000,[13] and was showcased as its “Builder of the Year” in 2006.[14]
Mr. Gasser & the Weirdos[edit]
Mr. Gasser & the Weirdos was a 1960s novelty music group led by Roth, who was known as Mr. Gasser. Formed in the early 1960s, they released a few bizarre surf rock albums, most notably 1963’s Hot Rod Hootenanny. One Way Records released a two-CD set (S22-18319) containing the three LPs and the original artwork.
Roth and bikers[edit]
Roth had his shop, that he started in early 1959, at 4616 Slauson Avenue in Maywood, California (about 8 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles) . He ran an ad in Car Craft magazine that year announcing the new address of his shop.
For a period in the mid 1960s, Roth associated with various outlaw motorcycle clubs who congregated at his shop as a lot of bikers were then living in Lynwood and Maywood. Musicians, police officers, FBI agents and various people involved in Hollywood would visit as well, providing an environment for one of Ed Roth’s most creative periods, and an important period in Kustom Kulture.
Roth incorporated the Iron Cross into his artwork (surfers had previously been using the iron cross as a symbol of youthful, carefree rebellion).[9] Roth didn’t own a bike at the time so he bought a brand-new Harley-Davidson Sportster and then proceeded to paint its gas tank a flat black color. Roth painted white lettering on one side of the tank that said: “Love is Hate”; and on the reverse side: “Hate is Love”.[15]
Roth had taken black and white photos of different bikers. He made posters, with titles like “Beautiful Buzzard”, or “Gray Cat” out of these photos, and sold them at car shows. Roth would periodically give these bikers small amounts of money, but soon some of the bikers started to feel that Roth was “getting rich” off of them and they wanted a larger cut. Despite Roth’s agreement, rumors began to circulate that a certain club intended to attack Roth’s shop. The gang arrived at the shop with guns drawn, but Roth’s crew defended themselves. Roth challenged the head biker to a one-on-one fist fight to settle matters in the middle of the shop. Eventually Roth gained the upper hand and “just started to beat the living crap out of the guy”.[9]
After this incident, Roth burned his biker posters, leaving the lifestyle behind at the same time. Things started winding down at the shop in the late 1960s, and in 1970 the shop closed.[16]
Personal life[edit]
Ed Roth was married four times. His fourth wife, Ilene, lives in Manti, Utah, where Ed Roth spent the final years of his life. Roth joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1974. Roth shaved off his goatee and was heavily involved in social work through his church. His brother Gordon also became a Mormon.[17]
At a 1999 lecture given at Brigham Young University’s Museum of Art, Roth shared some lessons he had learned in life: “expect criticism; if you can’t do it get help; you don’t need fancy tools or a fancy garage; and if you fulfill your duty Heavenly Father will bless you in what you do.”[18]
Since his death, the official Rat Fink Reunion has been held in Manti, Utah the first weekend in June. The museum that Ilene Roth created to honor her late husband includes displays of Ed’s art work and other memorabilia. Roth’s son Darryl has been working on collecting and displaying his father’s work.[19]

Freestyle motocross (also known as FMX) is a variation on the sport of motocross in which motorcycle riders attempt to impress judges with jumps and stunts.

Check out this video of RICKY PENTZ

Ricky Pentz RAGEFMX  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EkUvzINt100

The two main types of freestyle events are:

  • Big Air (also known as Best Trick), in which each rider gets two jumps — usually covering more than 75 ft (22.8m) — from a dirt-covered ramp. A panel of judges evaluates the style, trick difficulty, and originality and produces a score on a 100-point scale. Each rider’s highest single jump score is compared; top score wins.
  • Freestyle motocross, the older of the two events, in which riders perform two routines, each lasting between 90 seconds and 14 minutes, on a course consisting of multiple jumps of varying lengths and angles that generally occupy one to two acres (.4 to .8 hectares). Like Big Air, a panel of judges assigns each contestant a score based on a 100-point scale, looking for difficult tricks and variations over jumps.

Notable freestyle motocross events include Red Bull X-Fighters, NIGHT of the JUMPs, the X Games, Gravity Games, Big-X, Moto-X Freestyle National Championship, and Dew Action Sports Tour. Freeriding is the original form of freestyle motocross which started in the hills of southern California; due to professional racers such as Jeremy McGrath and Phil Lawrence “play riding” in the hills of Reche Canyon. It has no structure and is traditionally done on public land. Riders for natural jumps and drop-offs to execute their tricks on. Some free riders prefer to jump on sand dunes. In many ways, freeriding requires more skill and mental ability. Notable freeriding locations include Ocotillo Wells and Glamis Dunes in California, Beaumont, California, and Caineville, Utah.

My youngest son Loved FMX- but I cannot tell you how much, I did not love watching him, not that he was not good at it, he absolutely was great at it, and as a kid once myself I know better than to discourage, my kids from doing whatever they choose, and being supportive of it, but apparently my expressions everyone else was seeing each time he jumped 70ft in the air must have been horrifying by the hugs and he will be okay comments I got- here is some footage of my son check it out! He followed Monster trucks one year, put a show on in Ogden On the 4th of July, at the Loren Farr Park In Ogden, Utah as well as doing free shows for Evanston Wyoming, (Ramps, landings every bit of it he and his Dad built themselves!) His brother my oldest son would do the announcing for him and play the music these 2 kids are pretty talented, love them both check it!

Love you Baby from Mom- I made this video of my son and I will miss him very much!

Anything in motorsports-you name it, we love it!  

My boys – Jonny and Ricky host events like Arena cross, Car shows, Demolition derbies, Freestyle motocross, and hill climbing along with their awesome friends.

They learned all of this from their Dad and my best friend, Jonny Pentz senior,

Who was raised in a small town, in the country, and on a small farm?  Our hometown Morgan Utah, where I met Jonny Senior, he has been a wonderful father and taught my boys so much in the way of welding, mechanics, driving heavy equipment, and restoring old cars.

Jonny would tell us stories of how he would find this old broke down cars and trucks, and he was determined to get them running, but profit was not what- he had in mind.

September 17th, 1977, Jonny senior, was on his dirtbike, only 17 years of age at the time, when he was struck by a car head on, and thrown off the side of a steep hill, barely missing a wooden fence, nobody was rushing to this young boy, everyone that had witnessed the event, took him for dead.  The Hurst was called before the ambulance. However, this young man was not dead, truly nobody could figure out how this boy made it through that, he was in bad shape, broken bones, internal bleeding, he was not wearing a helmet, and the car was not paying any attention, or maybe he startled her, whatever the case, it swerved right into him on the wrong side of the road. Struck him, head on! The car and bike were totaled.

I would see this young man from time to time in his wheelchair, and I always felt so much sadness when I saw him, truly, I did not know him and he was quite a few years older than me, but for some reason, I would just watch this young boy, thinking how awful, so young, so handsome and more than likely bound to that chair for life. What a shame.

That is where I left off, he would go out into the fields and wrench on this old truck because he was going to get away, Jonny was a proud boy, he did not like being in that chair and he did not like, having others waiting on him, he hated how tiny his legs were becoming, and he would not stay in the house to get well, nope he was going to fix this old truck and leave for good. He was told and so were his parents he would probably never walk again, well this young man was not having that either, no way. Somehow he made himself walk. He also went on to riding bulls, working in the oilfield on the rigs, as a Derrick hand. That boy I did see again at the pool parlor, he pulled up in this 1972 Mach 1 California special- THE BOSS wow!  So now my husband, LOL and he is one tough soul, now is his older age he has acquired quite a few health problems, he was even given a date, several years ago, LOL when he was supposed to pass away. He has had to live with degenerative joint disease, in all 4 weight bearing joints, later on, we had noticed he struggled with the heat and had symptoms of a stroke, which led us to a neurologist, and later the diagnosis of Multiple sclerosis, it started affecting his vital organs, he still beat, all he could, until the day it hit his heart, 6 years ago, he had what they call the widow maker heart attack, and it has left him with congestive heart failure, I will never forget the day the light in his pale blue eyes literally went dark, but he came back to me, I seriously chased down his soul, I asked” what is it? You don’t want to hang out with me anymore?” Jonny then with every ounce of his being fought to stay and the day he got out of the hospital, we all went to the badlands, and he decided, he had to climb the elevator hill, this hill is ridiculously steep, but in his mind if he could climb that hill, he could kick this heart trouble too, and by damned he did and then my youngest son followed.

 This man loves us with all of his heart, he has been a great father to our children and the best, best friend, we could have ever had, we will always be the best of friends and that is the reason we are still together to this day, I have been with this crazy, thrill-seeking, guy since I was 17 years of age, and every day, watching him get smaller and smaller breaks my heart, but he remains positive.

This is where my boys get allot of their knowledge from, I have never had his IQ tested, but I can tell you this man is a Guin UI’s, when it comes to motors and it does not seem to matter what kind, you bring it he will fix it,  he was always so proud of our little boys, he took them everywhere with him and taught them.

He also seemed to pass on, these thrill-seeking behaviors, to our children.

I have road dirt bikes since the age of 13 years old, back when I thought I was a little boy, LMAO, well I was a Tomboy.

Jonny was a bull rider and a cowboy and did very well in the rodeo’s, but like with everything this man ever does, he has to be the very best at it, I can assure you, On a dirt bike, I would never follow that man, where he rides, but Ricky would, and Jonny jr he followed his dad around fixing up old cars, this time it was not to leave, he actually had restored several, he found it a good way to make some extra money.

The derbies, FMX, mud bogging we all just love, the thrill. I found it rather fun myself, in a demo derby, nothing better than to slam a few cars with your BIG BLACK Cadillac- the engine had a 502 chevy motor, more horsepower than this little girl should have been handling, but was that a good time, it was down to me and one other girl, round and round the damned arena we went, then I thought  this must be a bore for the crowd, so I threw her in reverse and that poor girl’s car, was now permanently stuck on my bumper LMAO, hehe he, nothing she could do, I drug her all around that arena, until I hit a big dirt berm, phew I cannot tell you how much fun that is, it is a ton of fun, I will always have my dirtbike, it’s my freedom, my fun, the wind in your hair, fresh air and out on a dirt road somewhere, that’s a good time for me.  I’m not quite right.. I don’t care either, fun is fun.

Motorsports is something we all enjoy and so we share it, show offs, yeah maybe!  Try it you will never want to do anything else!

PENTZHOSTSEVENTZ was a name my son Jonny Pentz jr mentioned to me allot while planning his car shows, and I thought, we do, we really do, everyone has a great time and our friends even where Jon and I grew up, will drive all the way up to attend the car show!

 These events can be used for fundraising, entertainment, helping people grow a business.

Jonny junior invites vendors of all kinds to his car shows, any and all small town

 

vendors are welcome! Everyone has a good time, and he is quite the entertainer throughout the event.
