Ace Photographer David Perry is world-renowned for his photographs of Hot Rods and girls - and this is the long-awaited second book, where the two come together! An all-new collection, with stunning images, collecting Hot Rod cars and girls together in an unmissable visual feast for any connoisseur. In the garage, on the road, the beach, salt flats, racetrack, these sumptuous pictures by the acknowledged master of Hot Rod pin-up photography recall classic illustrators like Vargas and Elvgren. But the beauties in Perry's photographs have been transported to - and transported by, it seems in some cases - the cluttered chop shops, deafening drag strips, dusty highways that Hot Rods call home. Sharing top billing are the cars of many of today's top builders, plus painstaking wardrobes and settings. Essays by the stars of the Hot Rod world round out this pulse-pounding book, a visual feast for any car aficionado.
About the Author
David Perry's photographs have been published, collected, and exhibited worldwide. He is the author of Hot Rod Pin-Ups, Billy F Gibbons: Rock n Roll Gearhead, Hot Rod Kings, and the best-selling Hot Rod calendar, all from MBI Publishing.
when it comes to photography of the female form justaposed with cold steel, David Perry is in a class of his own. The Californian has been responsible for the finest work in its genre with a collection of books that strip away the glitz and in his latest offering 'Hot Rod Pin-Ups II - Gearhead Girls and Dragstrip Dolls', Perry delivers seriously sensual material. Cars like a 1953 Oldsmobile Rocket and selection of Ford A models, to a bullet-riddled 1937 Plymouth Five-Window form the backdrop to some provocative poses. But where Perry really scores is with the way he conveys the improbable reality that not only are these girls comfortable in rusted roadsters and cluttered chop shops, at deafening drag strips and on dusty dry lakes, but that there's no place they would rather be. - Mike Torpey, Dumfries and Galloway Standard"
