Thanks for the comments.
These guys don't really pose for pics...just dance and drink beer all day.
Only have 18-55 atm, so in the first pic he saw me snapping away and grinned at me.

Cropped 100% from another pic for daacon

These are fun shots... we use to have a happenin' Rockabilly scene in San Jose when I lived there. Every once in a while I still see some of the guys 20 years later in SF and they are still livin' it. Got the look, the cars and the girls to go with it.

Seeing these guys reminds me of one of my favorite movies of all time...
'Mystery Train' by Jim Jarmusch anyone seen that one?

its funny how much Japan has latched onto American culture, especially concerning car culture. (for which the rockabilly scene heavily plays into.)

Mystery Train is a good film.
Think the Japanese part is the best bit.
