Cash prizes for 2nd and 3rd place. Contestants must be female and 18 + to enter.  No swimsuits or lingerie wardrobe is permitted in competition.  Admission to the pageant is free with admission to World of Wheels.  The Contest begins at 9:00 p.m. at the Seaport World Trade Center in downtown Boston, contestant check in at 8pm

Contestant registration is closed. Due to the overwhelming response online. 

During the preparation for this event VGS has had the pleasure of working closely with The Bombshell Betties. These women are truly amazing and look forward to seeing them more this year.

Bombshell Betties is a social network of lovely ladies who are enthusiasts for the nostalgia of the hotrod/car/pinup scene. They love everything from those good old days of our parents and grandparents era.... the cars, the clothes, the music even the furniture and of course most of all the Pin-Up models!
  They understand that entering the hot rod or pin-up scene might be intimidating especially for a beginner, so the goal of the group is to extend a welcoming hand out to others who want to be a part. Their goal is to be supportive and encourage other women to discover their potential and inner beauty, no matter what their size, shape or color!

Bombshell Betties founder, Janice Allen, cut her teeth in the hot rod scene by way of her father's flea market stall in Amherst N.H. helping her dad sell antique car parts to vintage car hobbyists. It was there she was bitten by the nostalgia bug and became interested in pin-up era style and dress, which eventually led to her becoming a budding photographer, doing photo shoots of hot rods and pin-up girls at local cruise nights. She was often asked by girls on the side lines watching "How could I be a pin-up?" Or "Where is a good place to buy vintage clothes?" Or " Where can I learn how to do my hair and make-up in pin-up style? And that is how the idea of Bombshell Betties was born.
