October is here and we have the perfect girl for Rod Authority’s Babe of the Month feature, the lovely Erica Vaughn. Halloween happens to be her favorite time of the year too, so with no further ado, we give you our Babe Of The Month for October 2018!
Her love for horror flicks and spooky movies is rather apparent when you check out the amazing tattoo work she has. When she isn’t curled up in front of the TV, you will catch this gal hitting the road and taking in as many adventures as she can.
She caught the travel bug a few years ago and has made a point to take in as many vacations around the world as she can. As a matter of fact, she is out traveling right now in beautiful Cancun enjoying the Mayan temples and a margarita.
Name: Erica Vaughn
Occupation: Restaurant & Hospitality
How did you get into modeling? When I was a little girl, I used to watch a lot of silent-film movies. I became infatuated with the actresses that played the roles of the movies. I was so in love with the style of the 1920s-40s. The way the wardrobe was designed, the hairstyles, the confidence they carried, and the makeup.
Favorite modeling gig so far?
This question is really hard for me to answer, because every modeling gig is special to me. Working with photographers, hairstylists, wardrobe designers, car builders, and other models, you start to develop friendships that are created through art. A lot of my good friends I’ve met were from modeling gigs that I have worked. The best part are my friends.
Where have you been published?
Along with Rod Authority, I have been published in Car Kulture Deluxe, Ol’ Skool Rodz, Delicious Dolls Magazine, Cycle Source, multiple calendars, and a few designer websites.
Favorite Car Show?
I would have to say “Mooneyes” is my favorite car show. Why? I love the drag races! I love hearing the cars roar! One day I wish to attend the Mooneyes in Japan. It’s on my bucket list to do.
Favorite classic car?
1959 Chevy Nomad station wagon
Any upcoming car show plans?
Favorite vacation destination?
Bali, Indonesia. So peaceful, the water is super clear and clean. The food is amazing, the locals are really nice. Also, so much nature, sightseeing, hikes, waterfalls, fishes, and sea turtles. I highly recommend Bali, Indonesia.
Where was the last place you’ve traveled?
The last place I’ve traveled to was Maui, Hawaii. I have visited Maui before and my first time was too perfect! I had to return and see the island one more time. I am an Island girl.
What do you like to do in your free time? Sleep!!!!!! Also cuddle with my animals. The love my animals show me is the most loyal and pure kind of love.
Favorite night club or spot to watch bands?
Whichever venue, bar, clubs, the bands I like perform. I love to watch and love supporting the band and their journey.
Favorite music to listen to while driving?
Okay, so I come from a punk rock background. And yes I blast my music. I can’t help it, I love to feel the energy. It gets my day started.
Favorite road trip destination?
I would have to say the road trip to the Clown Motel. The Clown Motel is located in Tonopah, Nevada. The reason behind this adventure was because this Motel has a spooky history behind it ,and I love creepy adventures. It was a good experience, I would recommend it.
Any upcoming travel plans?
Yes! I leave for Cancun in 2 days. This will be my first time in Cancun and I am very excited for this trip. My plan is to visit the Mayan Ruins, eat lots of fish, and be at peace.
Describe your personal style?
If I had to describe my personal style, I would have to say I am very laid back. I like to have a positive attitude and also dress pretty comfy. Band shirt, jeans, and Vans.
Favorite holiday coming up?
Do you like to dress up for Halloween?
I actually really like dressing up. When I was a little girl I would tell my parents non-stop my ideas for costumes. When Halloween finally came, it was a tradition to take pictures in your costume. My mom took plenty!!

I love scary movies. It hard to scare me, but when I was little girl, Candyman was no joke!

I have Charlie Chaplin, he’s my inspiration, David Bowie, he’s a legend, and Ring Pop because they are awesome. A side portrait of my grandma, she is one of the most strongest women in my family and she always tells me to speak up and never give up your life dreams. Jack-o-lantern pumpkin, I love Halloween!!
