Pinups are part of the classic car show for a reason: The coolest cars and the hottest retro looks go hand in hand. Pinup models are masters of their craft in the same way that master builders are, creating epic looks and tableaux to showcase their style. Enjoy these amazing, talented models and the artists who brought their visions to life!
We want to give special thanks to promoter and model Tonya Kay and photographer Mitzi Valenzuela for the incredible work they do and for sharing these photos with our audience.

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.
This week's pinup is Miss Kat, who is also competing in the All-American Girl Pinup Contest. Our Miss Kat loves the pinup culture for the ability to showcase the female form. All sizes , shapes and colors – how can you NOT love pinup! Her love of cars is reflected in that as well. These days she can be found building her 1954 Studebaker Commander from her one car garage. This pinup loves creating beautiful vintage hot rods and celebrating the pinup culture – the best of both worlds
This was a great set of photos! Loved all the cars and models! This would fit in with my calendar idea, just this Corona Virus situation has put a bit of a damper on the plans I had! When this is over, I’ll talk to you more!
