Click Here to Begin Slideshow Hot rod and pinup photographer Mitzi Valenzuela is known for having her finger on the pulse of both classic and rockabilly car culture. As part of that, Mitzi produces Pinup Contests for shows all over the world. Here she shares photos of the competitors and some super sweet rides. "I'm DeeDee Cupcake, a little pinup with a big personality! I've loved all things retro ever since I was a little girl. I'm a burlesque performer and emcee, and I was also a contestant on Cupcake Wars, where I got to serve cupcakes to Rob Zombie. I'm also a tiki aficionado, and you can find me almost every Wednesday at my favorite tiki bar, Tiki Ti. "I recently competed in the first ever “Miss Goleta Lemon Festival” pinup pageant, produced by Christini Martini. The contestants raised over $1500 for the Unity Shoppe of Santa Barbara, which was amazing! It was a very fun day spent with my pinup sisters, and the camaraderie I felt among this particular group pf competitors was unlike any other contest I’ve done. "There were some incredible cars at the Goleta Lemon Festival; my favorite was the tiki van! There was a talent portion, and I decided I was going to try doing stand up for my talent after wanting to try it for some time. Two of my biggest pinup inspirations are Lucille Ball and Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. "My jokes must have “a-peeled” to the judges, because I was crowned the first Miss Goleta Lemon Festival Queen! I am beyond honored to have been chosen to hold the title and represent the Lemon Festival. I strongly encourage everyone to learn more about the Unity Shoppe and consider donating. And just maybe, if you’re lucky, you’ll get to hear some of my jokes!"
