Beatnik Bandit Concept Art by Fireball Tim Garage

Badass BEATNIK BANDIT, Hells Dept and Ponch enter the Garage

As you know, I'm a BIG DIECAST GUY and my Collection in the 805 is epic. My goal has always been to SKETCH the entire line of Sweet Sixteens and I'm still workin' on it. But today, it's all about the BEATNIK BANDIT.

The original Beatnik Bandit was a custom car created in 1961 by Ed "Big Daddy" Roth. The car features a clear bubble canopy, speed and directionally controlled by a central joystick that ended up in multiple SPECTRAFLAME Colors by Hot Wheels in '69! Which one do YOU have? Check out all the BB SketchSwag in the Garage as well as ALL THE HOT WHEELS here so far!

Today's B&W SKETCH is HELLS DEPT which was an original for the DIECAST DEMONS Coloring Book with Diecast Heroes!

And finally, I've hung out with PONCH (Erik Estrada) many times and something CHIPS is brewin...' Stay tooned here to the Fireball Tim Garage.

Today's BEST OF SHOW is a 500hp Corvette-Powered NASH METROPOLITAN! As CRAZY as they come!! WATCH and SUBSCRIBE to Fireball's Youtube Channel for 2 New Episodes DAILY!
