I am tickled you-know-what to see our pink mailbox at email@example.com flow over with seas of pink. We have so much that we make this weekend a pink twofer, with pink oodles to spare.
I bet reader russty1 did not take that picture of Connie Kreski on a pink Shelby GT 500, ca. 1969.himself. If he did, well, time will have taken its toll on Connie and Shelby by now. Good that we have another one from the glorious days of 69.
Here she is again. Nice NACA ducts!
For the history buffs, russty1 ritess: “Playboy gave its ’playmate of the year’ a car, and for a while they were all pink. In 1969 they gave Connie Kreski a pink Shelby GT 500.”
In formerly beautiful Destin FL, reader IsThisMyAlias (not his real name) bagged two pinkos. “The Bronco, or perhaps, Chevy Blazer, (4X4s are not my forte) was an out of state tourist at a beach house for spring break.”
“But the Mustang is a local, I’ve seen her driving around a couple times.”
Writes pink hunter Robert Danziger from a tony neighborhood where BS used to live when he still had money: “Here’s the pink Lamborghini Espada that comes out to every single Manhasset NY Concours D’Elegance. The lady in the picture is the owner. She’s as nice as can be, and this is just a fantastic car in a fantastic color. It always draws a crowd.” The lady is in the dark. Must be that General Imaging GEDSC camera that was used to capture her and the pink Espada.
TTAC’s Detroit reporter Ronnie Schreiber must be color blind, apart from being into zaftig. He calls this a “Full size Barbie with a pink Vette.” That’s RED, Ronnie. RED.
Now THAT’S pink! See, you can do it.
This utterly disgusting picture, submitted by Rick, taken at the Walmart parking lot in Columbia , Missouri, is another example of what NOT to send when TTAC says: Hunt the pinkies! Send pictures of pink cars (cars, I say) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please enclose your TTAC screen name for proper credit. If you forget it, we’ll publish your pinkies under your full name.
And may the pink be with us.
