    Because pretty girls have been replaced by trashy girls?

    Even the tool illustrations look really good.

  5. unfortunately "girls with tools" has a much different connotation in 2006 than it did in 1944.
  6. George Petty was an awesome illustrator, but April '53 is scaring me.

    Next time you are in the KC area, head over to Lawrence, Kansas. They have over 10,000 "Vargas" original's that he donated to KU. They had them on display in 02', but if you stop by on Friday mornings before noon, they will get some of them out for you to look at.

    I don't think it's cause the PC factor, cripes, the edginess today leaves nothing to the imagination. That's just classy by todays standards. Though, then it was probably edgy to a lot of older folk.

    If you go to a smaller store that sells Ridgid tools, like plumbing and piping supply houses, they still have the Ridgid Tool Girl Calendars. AND, they're not chicks covered in tattoo's. They're actually still done pretty classy. I love hot rockabilly chicks with tattoo's, but I agree on the calendars, keep it classy. I'll post some pics on here of this years Ridgid stuff. when I get a chance.

    Funny story(kinda sad actually)...When I first went to NYC on biz...back in 90-91(?)...I toured the Soho district and checked out a ton of independent gallerys.
    The piN-up art thang had not yet revived....and I visited 4-5 joints that were selling original Elvgrin pin-up art(read LARGE canvasses)....
    anywhere from $2000 k-$4500k.....I was dumb.
    Original Elvgrins today fetch anywhere from $40,000-$80,000 k about missing the boat........

    Great thread Jay!

    Five years ago I bought a clutch from Fort Wayne Clutch, for my '54 Buick.
    A couple of months later, I get a poster tube in the mail from them. Mailed to the office.
    Opened it up, pulled out the contents, and HOT DAMN! It's the Playboy Calendar for that year!!!
    Nothing skanky, just pretty nude women in different non-pornstar poses.
    It was refreshing to actually have a company that deals with guys and guy interests not be afraid to send out a calendar with nude women on it.
    I need a new clutch for the Buick...Guess where I'll buy it from?

    Every year for Christmas my wife buys me a calendar for my office with '40s and '50s pin-ups on it. Odd, she doesn't feel threatened by well drawn, scantily clad women. It's from a different era.

    And one of our most prized wall hangers has to be our pair of 1954 Marilyn Monroe nude calendars. It's the pic of her on red velvet. I found them in an antique store. They'd never been hung up--they're perfect. When my shop is done, one goes in there above the urinal, the other goes in her art studio in the basement.

    funny how everybody jumps on the "PC" thing. i wonder how many have actually taken the iniative to call or write a letter to the companies that used to have girly calanders? fact is the "men" have allowed it to happen, in fact probably encouraged it by leaning towards more porn like pictures, the old style cheesecake just can't compete with straight up porn shots.

    and i rule out the women's lib angle, there were plenty of racy calanders right up through the 70's and 80's. and as far as i'm concerned, burning bras is good! i like nipples, i like bouncy natural boobs!:D

    i know it's drifting off into forbidden HAMB topics, but IMHO it has more to do with certain religious groups who want to hold everybody to their supposed moral standards, and are doing it by using the power of the government.

    now to keep it hot rod related, how about the 07 HAMB calander be done in the tasteful cheesecake style of girls with hotrods and customs?:D
  28. Anyone ever seen a Pirelli calendar?
