This is a must-have for fans of retro hot rods and pin-up art. The cars are very primal - no billet or Boyd Cottingham crap here. They range from rat rods to lead sleds to full kustoms, as well as everything in between. And the models are in period-correct clothing (or out of said clothing!). Perry has noted personalities from the art and rodding worlds contributing essays, including Rob't. Williams. The author correctly evokes the period without beating you over the head with it; he captures it matter of factly. All the cars are interesting, with info on the car and the pin-up model given. Naturally, these gals are scorchingly hot. Guys, this is the genuine article. You need this book!

The cars are much better than the girls. The women generally are not classy looking. Maybe that is what David Perry had in mind. The cover shot is the best pinup shot. The photography is super.

I hate to be a geek, but I was looking at the cars more than the girls the first time I went through this book. There are lots of famous hot rods here, rat rods and stylish customs too. But then, I noticed how cool all the photos are - Perry has an incredible eye for setting up a cool photo. Don't get me wrong, the women in here are beautiful and sexy, and I found out after reading the book (I paged through the first 10 times) that they are wearing vintage clothing too. But man if you love cool cars like me it's hard to decide what to look at.

If you like Hot Rods and Beautiful Women, You'll enjoy this book. AND if you're into photography that's a plus because this book will give you great ideas. David Perry is a genius in my humble opinion and knows how to combine these two things to create beautiful images.

This superb book sure got my hot rod up and running. Terrific images of a wide variety of sexy models hanging around street rods and ugly rat rods. (The only way to show case an ugly rat rod: Counter balance it with one of Perry's sexy pinups.)

David Perry not only gets the Hot Rod Kulture, he's part of it! and luckily, for us, he captures it on film, with mastery.

The book is awsome. His choice of cars and models is right m*#@ing on!

The only problem is keeping my friend's greasy mitts off my copy...

I guess I'll have to get a couple more...books that is
