She had a distinguished hair style. That followed by having giant billboards all over West Hollywood and parts of Los Angeles with a picture of herself driving the pink corvette. The billboards were titled “Angelyne”. Eventually, her dream came true she was a household name in West Hollywood and people would stop to take photos of her.
