But to get this tag you're going to need his real name too.

(and while I don't normal go more then two pages, you'll need to go a couple more)
I'm certain I know who this is but I'll be damned if I can find this image...searching on his real name, his working name, combinations thereof, etc. Is there some additional trick to finding this specific image?

And a gorgeous image it is!
The tag was Kenny Howard Von Dutch,

I found it on page 4
(though to get a larger image you needed to go down to the bottom of the page)

here's the link


Von Dutch Wallpaper


Yeah he was another of those walking to a different beat people,

Godfather of pinstriping, master mechanic, he was also a gunsmith and designed and produced the Winchester 1892 Model carbine, called the "Mare's Leg that McQueen used in the tv show Wanted Dead or Alive.

In Kenny's case his daughters sold the use of his "Von Dutch" trademark after he died in '92.
Again, this is a hard one to call.

You kind of have to wonder how Howard would feel given what he said about clothes and money.
Kenny Howard aka Von Dutch wrote:
"I make a point of staying right at the edge of poverty. I don't have a pair of pants without a hole in them, and the only pair of boots I have are on my feet. I don't mess around with unnecessary stuff, so I don't need much money. I believe it's meant to be that way. There's a 'struggle' you have to go through, and if you make a lot of money it doesn't make the 'struggle' go away. It just makes it more complicated. If you keep poor, the struggle is simple."

This is odd. I'm pretty sure that at least part of the time I did search on "Kenny Howard Von Dutch", though at other times I had additional search terms which may have complicated things.

Looking again just now, I find a "colorized" verson on page 3 and one on page 5 of the results. I would have missed the color perhaps because it was I was scanning for B&W, but I'm not sure how I could have missed the exact match. I swear they weren't there before, but I may have just lost my fool head and provided too much search info.

Oh well, it was fun spending some time wandering around the internet and bumping into the car culture guys: Big Daddy Ed Roth, Gene Winfield (out of Modesto), George Barris, Carl Casper, Dean Jeffries, and Darryl Starbird. And I learned about the Western Exterminator tie-in, plus, of course, more about Kenny. Lots of fun!

(But after all that investment of time, that's why I came roaring right back in when Cynner posted those Vegas waitresses!) Razz emoticon

Well GIS is not always an exact science.

breturi7 and I have had that problem before.

But yeah searching is half the fun.

About 13 years in the making and with estimated costs between 3.2 - 6.4 billion Euros, this thing, described as the largest machine ever made, was fired up for the first time last week. And despite initial (and unfounded) fears of critics, we all still exist for now...though check back in 6 - 8 weeks when they really get it going.

I FINALLY found it, but couldn't find anything on the origins of the photo.

I was hoping it was an old photo of the Motor Maids, but alas.

All I could find on it was that is was taken in San Diego, circa 1915.

This one was also from the same grouping of photos. The front wheel and fender look a bit like the one you see in the background on the right in the group photo.

I'll admit I cropped the top and bottom of this image. Guys "of a certain age" should have this one in a hearbeat...though lots of women will know his work too.

Lol, I thought this one would be easy.


But I'm glad you all found it,

As they say "the devil is in the details"

Because you missed the four hints

The tag was,

She Devils on Wheels
(yeah cynner's avatar)

Hint 1- cynner this is for you (with a wink)

Hint 2- subject - I like your avatar

Hint 3- theme song lyrics

Hint 4- Maneaters was the name of the all female biker gang.
