Frontier Hotel 1942-2007

"This is the end result of all the bright lights... and the comp trips, of all the champagne... and free hotel suites,
and all the broads and all the booze. It's all been arranged just for us to get your money.
That's the truth about Las Vegas. We're the only winners. The players don't stand a chance. "

-- Sam "Ace" Rothstein, Casino, 1995

Viva Las Vegas 2011

I attended the VLV car show and concert on Saturday, April 22, 2011 at the Orleans Hotel.  If you have never attended the VLV, it is my opinion one of the best public events that comes to Las Vegas.  It is a great time, the drinks are cheap, the cars are amazing, the women are pretty hot looking, and best of all it’s all retro 1930’s, 40’s, 50’s, and early 60’s.

To start with, here’s a sampling of the vintage vehicles at VLV 2011:

The “Raider Nation” was of course represented.   Gotta love this homey in the zoot suit – Raider colors of course…  “Orale holmes.”

Here are some of the “vintage” looking women at this event.  The hair, make up and accessories are quite a feast for the eyes…

For whatever reason there was a substantial contingent of dudes (and a few women) with Mohawks…

I don’t know how women can strut around in heels on the blacktop for hours upon hours, but it is quite the spectacle of footwear at this event…

This event lends itself to substantial amount of “self promotion.”  Enjoy the photos…
