Carlos Kella is a well-known photographer specialising in US-Car culture and pin-up art based in Hamburg. This pictorial book presents a selection of motives shot for the calendar "Girls & legendary US-Cars" 2009 - 2016 as well as for pictorials in various magazines. The stories about the cars, showing non-published pictures and detailed close-ups, were researched and written by Peter Lemke.
Real rarities such as the 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham or a 1959 Dodge Regent from Canada are shown together with the Pony-Cars Ford Mustang or Plymouth Barracuda. Included are the Chevrolet Corvette, clones of NASCAR racers and the independents such as Hudson and Studebaker. Pick-up trucks, Hotrods and Lowriders round the book off.
No matter whether with shiny chrome, painted in flat colors or in pristine condition with beautiful patina: The book shows the full spectrum of the German US-Car scene. True to convention, numerous models of the pin-up, burlesque and tattoo scene are part of the book, enhancing the presentation of the cars.
