  3. Hope this isn't the wrong place to ask the question.

    I presume the same applies in the US. At any hot rod/classic car show/beach hop here in NZ the rock and roll girls are always heavily tattooed - why? What do tattooed girls have to do with the 1950s? Have I missed something?

    It's the idea that young "hot rodders" have that 50's women had tattoos, looked like Betty Page.
    That guys all had greased hair, undershirts with rolled up cuffs.
    This is millennials ideas of the 50's, tied up in the rust bucket / rat rod crowd.

    I think what you are missing is that tats are popular now. And those pictures are being taken now. So those girls have ink. Has nothing to do with the fiftys. I had long hair in 70. Long hair went out and I got a hair cut. those girls are going to be kinda stuck when tats go out of style.

    It's part of "Kustom Kulture", a lifestyle based on the fifties with newer attitudes like the heavy tattoos. I know a number of young women into this that also do things the women in the fifties didn't do like build their own cars, custom paint, pinstripe...it's a different world.

    Pretty sure it's a Cessna 120. Luscombe's did not have the spring steel main gear legs and Cessna 140's had flaps(the previous Cessna 120 model had no flaps).

  27. My premier beating. A guy challenged me in a really rough looking 59 Lark 2 door post.
    Mud spattered, crushed left 1/4 panel, faded, a real rat.
    He cleaned my clock by car lengths ( more than I care to admit).
    My Rochester injected 283 was hot but no match for his R3 Supercharged Lark’s engine.
    Yeah, those Studebakers can step it up.

    LGS, I didn't know any girls in that ere with tattoos. Not in the midwest. Very few guys, even.
