While on a trip to LA to cover Motor Trend Magazine‘s selection process for their 2012 Car of the Year, Peter Valdes-Dapena and I stopped at Galpin Auto Sports to talk with Beau Boekmann about his collection of famous Ed Roth custom cars.

We got a behind-the-scenes look at how he found the now famous Orbitron and why he became interested in Ed “Big Daddy” Roth’s automotive works of art.

I senior produced the video and shot a number of the images in the gallery.

Watch the video below.
