Kandy Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby, Wofle

He observed the emergence of intriguing art forms and styles of life that had nothing to do with the “elite” culture of the past. In the Low Rent world of the Twist, bouffant hairdos, stock car racing, and rock concerts he found not only a uniquely American energy but also an American aesthetic. The condition is very fine and has very little marks, it also comes with a dust cover.
