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

Chinatown

Chop Top Street Rod

West House Deuce

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