Default How Lust Built Hot Rod Magazine



I've told this story before, but it makes sense for me to tell it again on Valentines Day, 2011. It's a story that was told to me by Wally Parks in and around 2004 or so - a transition period for Marcie and I in so many different ways. I had this web...

Man that's a cool story and it totally makes sense. I've always looked at that picture and wondered who she was myself. She's hot! and kind of tough lookin too with her striped shirt, jeans, and boots! I guess the old saying "Sex sells" was true even back then!

I believe with that smile and pose she captured the attitude of a developing segement of the population. Amazing how it still speaks to so many after so much time has passed.

Thanks for bringing that back up.... as soon as the page loaded and I saw that grin I think I fell in love all over again.

It only takes the right suggestion to "dial in" a person's thinking. If HOT ROD Magazine and The Jalopy Journal aren't proof of that then I don't know what is. All great ideas, like great journeys (journals?) start with the 1st step, and well, look at you now. I'm betting there's hundreds of members here that had the very same experience in different venues.

Oh yeah, she's a relative of mine BTW. Dad's side of the family if I got it right. See a long time ago he and buddy ended up in Socal working for one of the aircraft companies shortly after the war. It seems that

Thanks for the awesome story Ryan. The thing I like about Wally Parks from all the stories I've heard and read is how he affected the lives of so many in such a positive way.

There is nothing lustful or obscene about that girl in the car. That is the way they dressed back then. She reminds me of girls I knew.
I just came back home from the Grand National Roadster Show and while down there I noticed a typical Senior Citizen Van in Huntington Beach. Painted on the side was " Surf City Senior Citizen Transport. " Think about that for a while. Your day will come.

Funny! When I first saw her pic I thought she was pretty Hot too, I thought the caption under her shot said she was from Tulare.

She does look like she has the potential to be a little saucy. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

I think we ought to make it our mission to find this gal.It would probably perk her day up to know that so many of us have her on our minds.

There's a "hot one" in everybody's thoughts on Valentine's Day. I think the girl in the pic is both pert and saucy, Cat
