Dunno about you guys, but I have been toying with the idea of rolling out of the pits, eventually, with a magnificent beard (or stache) in tow.
For inspiration, I turn to motorsport.
The man needs no introduction and is modeling the F1 “light” style. This works best on those who are perpetually youthful.
This man is not taking any prisoners. A beard like this means, “I don’t care if you are on pole. I have already won the race of life… Oh, your mother says “hello.”” This is the last known image of the memorable Austrian driver, Harland Ertl, just prior to his facial hair completely taking over and absorbing his remaining life essence.
On the right we have my favorite style, the 1970 mutton-chop. This is a style that allows for extra downforce and cleaner eating habits. Also, you attract famous race team owners like bees to pollen. Note how It is hard to tell where the hair ends and the mutton chops begin. This is master level work. Thank you, Emerson, and, thank you, Colin, for supporting his work.
So, anyone else hair farming their way to glory in these trying times?
Here’s a couple memorable NASCAR mustaches. It appears that the war on beards is still being fought in America. Mainly mustaches, some close cropped beards, but no ZZ Top long ones.
The massively talented Tim Richmond circa 1983
Jeff Gordon, circa 1992. He went full send into the hearts of
America with the formidable mullet/stache combo.
