Motor vehicles can be a fashion statement.
Find the right vehicle, you set a fashion mood just as easily as a piece of statement jewelry, the right pair of shoes, or the perfect designer gown.
Step into a convertible sports car, one with a racing stripe, and you have James Bond-cool.
Step onto an Indian motorcycle, you have a rocker, rebellious chic.
Step into a hot rod with painted flames…, well, you’ve got surfer girl, ’60s cool.
Model Margot Paul was given a mission. Pick out a few pieces of her wardrobe that would reflect the automotive mood of the classic cars and motorcycles headed to the auction block at Barrett-Jackson Northeast 2017 auto auction at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville.
This is what happened.
(Side note: Any time, model Margot Paul is seen in these photographs touching a vehicle, she was given permission by the owner or vendor. Barrett-Jackson is definitely, “You can look, but do not touch… unless you’re buying.”)
