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.

Reviews

.,."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" ."..when it comes to photography of the female form justaposed with cold steel, David Perry is in a class of his own.

Each chapter has an accompanying script by guest writers - to take your mind off the pictures, no doubt..." Harris Dee, Somerset County Gazette "The captivating images are accompanied by a foreword on the sexualisation of automobiles in American culture by the acclaimed visual artist Coop, as well as commentary from various respected hot rod scribes, proving that men, motors and the appeal of the scantily clad lady may be nothing new, but shows not sign of slowing down." - Rhalou Allerhand, Forum ..".when it comes to photography of the female form juxtaposed with cold steel, David Perry is in a class of his own." - Ayrshire Post "But when it comes to taking photographs of the female form juxtaposed with cold steel, then David Perry is in a class of his own." - Liverpool Daily Post ..".Hot Rod Pin-Ups II remains a visual feast for lovers of all things hot rod." - Auto Express "Since time immemorial there's been a synonymy between hot rods and girls and this latest publication featuring the renowned photography of David Perry is crammed full of some of his best work." - Custom Car "Look at Amber! Dude, no, check out that Bethany! Or how about Riika? And that Vanessa, man! She's smoking! Yeah, man! That's how it went, for hours. Pages were turned, paper torn, drool buckets filled up. By the time I got back for this review, the book looked like it had been through hell." - Doc Z, RebelRodz when it comes to photography of the female form justaposed with cold steel, David Perry is in a class of his own.
