Dutch photographer Jacqueline Hassink spent over five years and traveled to three continents, chronicling the bizarre world of car show girls. The resulting book, "Car Girls," depicts the the auto industry's human window dressing presenting, posing and, more often than not, staring vacantly into the crowds. Hassink and author Tim Dant deal with obvious issues of gender and objectification, but while giving it a look we couldn't help but wonder if our tax money used for the auto bailout is going toward hiring these ladies. If so, the least they could do is friend us on Facebook.

Excerpted images from the book can be seen in the gallery below.
