I'd like to think that had Abe Lincoln lived to see the automobile age, he would have driven like a bat out out of hell!

This design was inspired by an old rockabilly song of the same title (which had nothing to do with our 16th President.) I based the design of Lincoln on the classic Ratfink illustrations by Ed "Big Daddy" Roth.

Take a closer look at my design with this link:

Goodness Gracious !!! this is Rockin' me so hard

and I love the song too :

HOT ROD LINCOLN

My pappy said, "Son, you're gonna' drive me to drinkin'
If you don't stop drivin' that Hot Rod Lincoln"

Have you heard this story of the Hot Rod Race
When Fords and Lincolns was settin' the pace?
That story is true, I'm here to say
I was drivin' that Model A

It's got a Lincoln motor and it's really souped up
That Model A body makes it look like a pup
It's got eight cylinders, uses them all
It's got overdrive, just won't stall

With a 4-barrel carb and a dual exhaust
With 4.11 gears you can really get lost
It's got safety tubes, but I ain't scared
The brakes are good, tires fair

Pulled out of San Pedro late one night
The moon and the stars was shinin' bright
We was drivin' up Grapevine Hill
Passing cars like they was standing still

All of a sudden in a wink of an eye
A Cadillac sedan passed us by
I said, "Boys, that's a mark for me"
By then the tail light was all you could see

Now the fellas was ribbin' me for bein' behind
So I thought I'd make the Lincoln unwind
Took my foot off the gas and man alive
I shoved it on down into overdrive

Wound it up to a hundred-and-ten
My speedometer said that I hit top end
My foot was glued like lead to the floor
That's all there is and there ain't no more

Now the boys all thought I'd lost my sense
And telephone poles looked like a picket fence
They said, "Slow down! I see spots!
The lines on the road just look like dots"

Took a corner, sideswiped a truck
Crossed my fingers just for luck
My fenders was clickin' the guardrail posts
The guy beside me was white as a ghost

Smoke was comin' from out of the back
When I started to gain on that Cadillac
Knew I could catch him, I thought I could pass
Don't you know by then we'd be low on gas

We had flames comin' from out of the side
Feel the tension, man, what a ride!
I said, "Look out, boys, I've got a license to fly"
And that Caddy pulled over and let us by

Now all of a sudden she started to knockin'
And down in the dips she started to rockin'
I looked in my mirror; a red light was blinkin'
The cops was after my Hot Rod Lincoln

They arrested me and they put me in jail
And called my pappy to throw my bail
And he said, "Son, you're gonna' drive me to drinkin'
If you don't stop drivin' that Hot Rod Lincoln!"

Le Coma,
There's not a joke involved. It's a creative play on a song's title
(Hot Rod Lincoln by Commander Cody and His Lost Planet
Airmen) in an amazing visual style ("Monster Hot Rod" style)
that was popularized by an awesome artist (Ed Roth).

Yeah, Tim Roth is a great actor, from Rob Roy to Resevior Dogs and apparently a fantastic designer as well! Oh, ed roth? Well, im sure he's a good actor too.

This design also reminds me a bit of ladrones printed one...im surprised no one has mentioned that yet. And this also reminds me of very cool t-shirts.
