My favorite kit is, of course, the classic original Rat Fink.  But the Scuz Fink, hands down has the most beautiful box art!

Rat Fink and Scuz-Fink are also the two runaway leaders in the voting so far.

Rat Fink is running away with the Gold here while Scuz-Fink seems to be a lock for the Silver.

One of my favorite of Big Daddy's creations that did not make the list was
"Druid Princess".  This was the car he was building for the Addams Family, and I love the coffin he used as a gas tank housing.
What ever happened to my Transylvania Twist?

Why do you believe he was building it for The Addams Family?

 ???

A model kit of the Druid Princess would have been boss but Revell didn't choose to issue one:

Big Daddy roth himself made the claim. ABC officials had approached him to build a counter to the Munster Koach, but the series was cancelled before the vehicle was completed. I had not realized that Revell never offered the Druid Princess as a kit.

Another fab "Big Daddy" Roth custom car that didn't get turned into a model kit by Revell was the Orbitron:





Pity.

The Druid Princess was featured on the cover of the February 1967 Drag Cartoons. Here's a scan of my copy:
