It's Hard Out Here for an Old School Pimp: The Corvorado

This image was lost some time after publication, but you can still view it here.

Considering the changing tastes of independent entertainment contractors, pimps of the '70s make today's pimps look like Martha Stewart Living: Rollin' Dirty Edition. Check out customizer Les Dunham's Corvorado, circa 1973. Sure, it looked like an Eldo, but it was a Corvette modified with Cadillac parts. Arguably the first true pimpmobile — in the original sense of the word — the Corvorado is featured in the DVD artwork for the iconic blaxploitation film, "Superfly."
