Von Dutch (aka Kenneth Howard) is one of the most interesting characters in hot rod and popular culture history. Considered the founder of ?modern? pinstriping, he was a prominentcharacter in many of the rodding magazines of the late ?50s, and his fame endured long after he apparently tired of it. Besides being a striper, he was a gifted artist, machinist, and gun- and knifesmith. Using stories and quotes culled from interviews, vintage photos, and images of the art and other works he left behind, Von Dutch: The Art, The Myth,The Legend, by Pat Ganahl, chronicles Kenneth Howard?s life from pinstriping beatnik to bus-dwelling hermit. Where it can, this book sets the record straight on Von Dutch the man, but in many cases conflicting stories will serve to illustrate the contrary, colorful, and sometimes difficult nature of Von Dutch the legend. Author Pat Ganahl, who also wrote the best-selling Ed ?Big Daddy? Roth: His Life, Times, Cars, and Art, is a life-long hot rodder and former editor of Street Rodder, Rod & Custom, and The Rodder?s Journal magazines. He?s one of the most respected and knowledgeable journalists in the hot rod and custom car field and is the recipient of several Moto awards for automotive journalism excellence. He lives in Glendale, California. Von Dutch is one of the most interesting characters in hot rod and popular culture history.
