Baron was about 62 years old when his grandson Kelly, 13 yrs old talked him into getting into business together. Baron had pinstriped for Studebaker and Ford. Roth went into the Air Force in 1951, they stationed him at a UFO tracking station in Morocco. No shit.
Roth, got out of the military and was jumping from job to job, or address to address, and somehow, I find this astonishing, had the same street number on different streets. 4616 Slauson, and 4616 Firestone.
Only Ed Roth could pull that off.
