Vintage Sleaze: Bettie Page and the Designer Living Dangerously. Ford Atmos Space Age Car and the Best Auto Model in the Business
Is that Miss Bettie Page riding in a space-age concept car produced by Ford in 1954? A car which 60 years ago was designed to do what the hands-free Google car is attempting today? Of COURSE it is, as it now appears the model was having an affair with the married designer sitting next to her.
This used to be a big controversy in the little Bettie Page underground. Is it her? (whisper…) Well, of course it is her, and that is her boyfriend at the time, space age designer Richard Arbib at the wheel. Well "grips" actually, as the design was steered like an airplane.
