Hey, it’s me, Tonya Kay, as the Pinup Pole Show Pinup of the Week this week! Happy holidays and happy new year to everyone. Here you see me posing with my own 1965 Buick Riviera, the Grape Space Coaster for one of my favorite photographers of all time, RacingJunk columnist herself, Mitzi Valenzuela.
I love working with other members of the RacingJunk family and if you haven’t yet listened to my guest spot on Ellen Richardson's Behind the Wheel podcast with co-host Chris Young, definitely take some time to catch Behind the Wheel, episode 30: Tonya Kay with all three of us chatting cars, performing arts, pandemic and health.
Some of you know because you’ve been reading my column the *entire time* I’ve written it here, but I’ve been sharing photography from my company, Pinup Pole Show, for 2 years now with RacingJunk in the Pinup Pole Show Pinup of the Week column! I’m the creator and producer of classic car show and stage performance extravaganza, Tonya Kay’s Pinup Pole Show, where much of my column’s photography is shot. I am so thankful for the opportunity to entertain you and hope to continue producing classic car events, creating classic-honoring photoshoots and sharing them with you here on RacingJunk for years to come.
I haven’t been as consistent as I would like to have been this year in my posting because (and I’m quiet scared to even share this publicly) I’ve been quietly treating breast cancer this entire pandemic. My “money makers”, I know! Hahaha. At the same time, as you can imagine, live entertainers lost all their work as of March and our jobs haven’t returned. I wanted my readers to know because I know a lot of you may have had a loved one affected by cancer or maybe even you, yourself. If you are in a position to contribute to help me through this double emergency this year, please visit my GoFundMe page. All donations are tax-deductible, thanks to non-profit, Kalopsia, so it’s an excellent way to take your charity donation this year too. If you share the GoFundMe link, that makes matters, too.
Here’s to many more years of being part of each others’ auto enthusiast family. Happy holidays. Stay healthy. Stay warm.
