Kind of an obvious idea, the first to come to mind after looking at a bunch of 70s photos on Google... Pulling it off was a little harder since I couldn't locate a good-looking "land yacht". Then it hit me that my neighbor right across the street had a not-running 1966 Ford Mustang on his driveway under a tarp for years. Not an ideal car for the shot I imagined, but it would do. I asked the neighbor, and he was very happy to put it to some use.

Dressing up was pretty easy. Both bell-bottoms and the tight blouse are my wife's. The Afro wig and the rim shades were just laying around from one of pаst Halloween parties. All in all, a fun shoot )).

Thank you for the ribbon!

It's the 70's waste line that's most impressive.

Nice Lev! Love the car. Our neighbor also has a mustang that has been under a tarp for 40 years.
