Pierelli 2006 Calender
November 22, 2005 11:42 AM   Subscribe

If you're going to run a Ferrari repairshop, you want to make sure your softcore is classy enough. Italian tire manufacture, Pirelli "offers you the unique opportunity to view many photos shot for the calendars but never published in the definitive editions, as well as know about the artistic directors, backstage, models, photographers and the story of the most awaited calendar in the world." So it's not just about gorgeous women in various states on undress, it's art damnit. (NSFW, Flash)

As for me I welcome our naked chick overlords.

I'm surprised that the tags don't include <Boobies>

Some of those shots from the 60's and 70's are pretty rad, especially compared to their contemporaries. Brings a tear to my eye to be reminded when smoking cigarettes was much more accepted.

Of course it's in Flash, so we can't save any of the pics for our "private use." Whatta gyp.

PurplePorpoise, those were the golden years od nudity. Pre-silicone, pre-bald crotches, just good old fashioned cheesecake.

72 was a not so good year. What happened to the lost years - 67, 75 - 83?

Geoff - one word: Hegre.

October 74 is pretty outstanding. What's with 2004 though? Did they just discover photoshop? It's horrible!
posted by crabintheocean at 2:07 PM on November 22, 2005


2004 is not the horrible year. Yeah, lots of photoshop, but at least it's fun in sort of a childish way.

No, no, 2000 is the horrible year. The year they apparently couldn't get models, and therefore chose instead to prop up dead people and hire crime-scene photographers to shoot only the odd body part. Ech.

Not that I'm complaining. Hooray for the rest of the photos.

You can access all pics directly:

Where YYYY is the year and NN is the pic num (01, 02, 03, etc)

Oh no there goes my next two hours... sigh...

Well actually in the 2006 calendar there's a photo of Kate Moss puffing away, but it's Kate Moss you know. There is no substance known to man that has the power to make her look bad.

NB the 2003 edition was the first and only one where they brought in a few male models as well.

Man one of these days I've got to get flash working in FF. A bit of poking around with RustyBrooks link looks promising.

The Flashgot plugin for Firefox lets you make a picture gallery, by entering something like

http://www.pirellical.com/thecal/img/ImgM/ImgM_[1972-2005]_[01-12].jpg

which iterates through all the possibilities, and shows them all on one page, sans icky Flash interface.

Flashgot , coupled with Free Download Manager is teh bomb.
