    Don't forget George Petty! His work was a little different from Vargas, less sultry, more girl-next-door type. His smiles are the best IMO! And Elvgren! Vargas, Elvgren, Petty, the pinup trinity. And for obscurity, Peter Driben, his bad girls were great!
    If you need pinup reference, I've got stacks of them books! The only thing I like as much as cars are pretty gals :)

    on the nose of the B25... Thats gotta get you some points.:D
