pin ups & hot rods

came across some photography by david perry
basically badass chicks with equally cool cars
here's some wikipedia to start:
-A pin up pin-up girl is a model whose mass-produced pictures see wide appeal as popular culture-
 -Hot rods are typically old classic American cars with large engines modified for linear speed-
-A rat rod is a style of hot rod or classic car that, in most cases, imitates or exaggerates 
the early hot rods of the 1940s, 1950s, and early-1960s-
-Most rat rods appear "unfinished", as only the vehicle's bare essentials are driven-

the first print i saw was Pink Tattoo above, possibly slutty but also charming
she led me to others:

 Rock-a-Billy Queen Rat Rod

Bluegrass Rat Rod

Hot Rod Pin Up Girl


Chop Top Street Rod

West House Deuce

Pink Tattoo is still my favourite, im considering buying a print for one of my walls

it was fun for about 3-4 months
going through various pink/peach/magenta hues with each recolouring

gone but back

...summer has gone...
it always seems to me that a regeneration comes in with the cooler air
i can't say that i havent been thinking about what to do the blog
but to my surprise ive also had other people mention it to me 
from friends to distant acquaintances and even strangers
judging by analytics its still being visited in much higher volume than id expect (yay!)
i understand that real life has a habit of getting in the way
but its always sad when loved blogs disappear.. so i want to keep my own going
ive been seeing a lot of cyprus blogthings going on right now:
starting up from scratch, collaborating, being sponsored, redesigned and/or coming back, its definitely interesting
so here i am too
lets see what happens!
