The memory of "Big Daddy" Roth and his wild car and fink creations had been engaged in a slow but steady fading in the 1970s and 1980s. New "Big Daddy" Roth items just weren't released for well over twenty years. But Kenner's release of the Rat Fink Hydro Racers plus these Rat Fink Rad Rods in 1990 acted to catapult "Big Daddy" Roth back into the public consciousness where he's remained ever since.











We "Big Daddy" Roth fans therefore owe a big vote of thanks to Kenner for helping to re-establish "Big Daddy" Roth as a present day pop culture icon!
