Found out this is Ashley Alyson Bryce aka Miss Leggy May… Find her on FB here.

If you’ve never been to the show. Stop now and catch up some with stories and photos of Viva starting back in 2009. It’s been a fantastic run of hot rods, all kinds of custom cars and of course what most would call rat rods. But Viva’s about the people and the music as much as anything else. For example, check out the lovely lady above! Pinup? 70s go-go dancer? Why categorize? Let’s just thank my man Mark Jacobs for the cool shots!

You’ll see the personality of the show come through in the photos, of course, but you’ll also see the photographer too. I asked Mark for some of his favorites and he couldn’t stop talking about this 1957 Chevy custom. He told me… ” The headlights are stacked and the grille… and the, and the..” As the saying doesn’t quite go, spare me the words and show it brother!

Also in endless supply and revealing the culture of Viva’s car show, the pinstriping. We regularly feature pinstriping pictures and try to grab artist’s thoughts as much as possible. We can’t get enough of the thin lines… I hope to have enough shots to create a gallery just from Viva 15.

Arizona’s represented at Viva… and represented well by Al de la Torre from Scottsdale, AZ. This 1951 Chevy first scrapped the ground at the 2010 Scottsdale Goodguys show. I shot the crap out of it in perfect morning light. If you dig it, check out these pictures: 1951 Chevy Custom. If you want a large image for your desktop, shoot me an email.

Let me conclude this first set of pictures with one more… of the ladies. If sexy, tattoo’d ladies are your thing, then make sure to see Viva Las Vegas Car Show at least once in your life. These ladies wander the rows of cars striking a pose here and there. It’s definitely a wonderful part of the show’s personality too.
