    Vargas? Not Vegas? What better way to alert you to all of the pin-ups that roamed the Viva Las Vegas car show last weekend?

    Those that have been following my thread on the board about our road trip from D/FW to VLV will surely recognize some of the pictures posted here.

    www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=581231

    But, like I said in that thread, I had way too many pictures to post on that thread alone. I wanted to separate them out because not everybody might not follow a road trip that might otherwise want to see Viva pics.

    I gave a lot of thought as to what order to best present the pictures here on the H.A.M.B. and I decided that the best way was to present them in the order that I took them. Many of the pics were taken on Friday, the day before the show with the rest taken on Saturday, the day of the car show itself. So, this will be presented as though you followed me around, looking over my shoulder for the two days that I was there. I hope you enjoy!

    Here's what I saw on Friday.

    On Saturday, one of the first vehicles that I saw was this '60 Ford convert ad car.

    And then a Barris built hearse. Much different than the Munster Mobile!

    [​IMG]

    Of course, there was the Acme Speed Shop van!

    And then I saw this!

    And then a bunch more vehicles!

    And from that point on, it was pretty much whatever caught my eye!

  28. Awesome pictures, but I wonder what's going on with these two pictures. Have we reached the "Guide-Coat" point in the paint evolutionary chain?

    The first one must be the mechanic's car. :D

    This was "smoked" with a torch, as was coverend in a thread here a couple weeks ago. The whole interior was done, all the garnishes, and the dash.

    Here's the thread:
