Yes, the road.

Horny Toad & Road Candy


That is the glamorous BB herself zooming across the Deer Isle Bridge at the wheel of our 1976 GMC Sierra 15 while on a Christmas-season shoot for Santa Barbara-based outfitter, Horny Toad. The photo is up at their blog. Originally bought at Casner Motors in 1976, the GMC was in Marfa until 2010, when we shipped it up to Maine, where it's been ever since. It is available for photo shoots in the Northeast, and our 1986 Chevy Custom Deluxe  (see below) is available for West Texas. Contact: himself@peterbehrens.org   t718 744 8129
