A Small Preview of the Historical Work.

Sirens of Chrome is a hardcover visual joyride through auto show history. The focus isn’t simply sheet metal; it’s on the distinctly human presence. These human hood ornaments are descendents of the Sirens of ancient Greek lore. They seek not to dash ships upon rocks but to entice the purchase of land-worthy ships to sail upon the highways and byways of America. Sirens of Chrome includes dozens of photographs, programs, and posters culled from the libraries, corporate files, and auto enthusiast portfolios, capturing decades of hot vehicles and torrid models. Discover whose “body” inspired the Rolls-Royce hood ornament or sit in a “rumble seat” with 1930s silver-screen goddess Joan Blondell. Gawk at over-the-top opulence of the Somali leopard pelt-upholstered 1957 Cadillac Debutante, sing along with Dinah Shore while you “See the U.S.A. in Your Chevrolet” or shake your head in wonder at the fur bikini-clad model atop a soviet-built Lada. Enjoy the ride!
