Angelyne Still Stopping Traffic on Twitter

Although fiftyish fading billboard bombshell Angelyne ditched Twitter personally in 2007 after a dozen or so trailblazing tweets, she remains a presence on the social media network. All thanks to her trademark pink Corvette.

The sight of Angelyne herself is not what it used to be. But her instantly recognizable mode of transportation remains unblemished, continuing to provide a thrill to anyone who catches sight of it on the streets of LA.  Even someone like @nerdist Chris Hardwick, responsible for picture at right. FishbowlLA would not be at all surprised if this Idaho gal ultimately chooses to be buried in the car or at least, per specific instructions, have her ashes dispersed from the passenger side window.

While Angelyne’s website has been downscaled to a trunk full of mags and her billboards are today less frequent, folks who come upon the Corvette in Chatsworth, a Pavillions parking lot and many other locations cannot upload Twitpics fast enough.

So, to Angelyne, we pay our respects for continuing to gift LA with a landmark as iconic as the Hollywood sign, the Griffith Observatory and David Hasselhoff slow-motion jogging. To check out the latest Angelyne Twitter sightings, click here.
