THE PHOTOGRAPHY OF PULSATING PAULA PART II | 1980s DAYTONA BEACH BIKE WEEK

The last time TSY posted the epic Photography of Pulsating Paula the interwebs superhighway stream was so strong it blew the plastic housing clear off my Commodore 64.

What you get is straight-up lettin’ it all hang out, livin’ the life Daytona. You don’t like it, stick it.
