at last, i have plans for this truck and the two trucks pictured here, are part of the reason why i love this truck so much, when i were a kid i used to love this film, (i'll be well impressed if any one can name it) and after being bought up on this and the ateam, the lunchbox, kinda just follows suit. any way the plan use an old shell i have and paint like the black truck replacing the arm for vannessa just leaving the lightening off, and build this new chassis, and being as ever since i first signed on to the bay i have been collecting parts for the box, i actually have a complete unbuilt new in pack chassis, but all original stuff apart from tyres, they came from a madbull kit. which i will stick back in the box meaning i will have a nib still but beter it will be an original chassis, just gotta get me a shell now ;)


dugans truck this was the main truck in the film where it sits one of the piles of my boards

yeah thats cool, but when you have worked in a skate shop for 8 years, and have many friends who are sponsored, they kinda fall in your lap often and they make great posters, guess i'm kinda lucky, however i do collect the old boards, you know the little plastic ones and other old boards, and my collection of them is a bit daft, in the hundreds now, but there is one i haven't managed to get my hands on, and thats an eight wheeler from the sixties, kind of like a three speed in the skateboard world, just rarer cuz people didn't like them as they didn't work i could chat on bout skateboards all day, i even have radio control ones, the tyco tony hawk one is one of my favourites, as it is self righting, you fall and he pushes himself back up and the steering is correct, all leaning, no wheels turning, maybe i'll post pics one day, i'll shut up now tho, gotta get back to stroking my NIB lunchbox lol

Lmao@Skateboards. I was gonna comment on your green/pink LB that it reminded me of a deck I sprayed once, but thought that was a bit geeky so left the comment off I stopped paying attention when they went from the early McGill, Meek etc style boards (when PP first stuck the rubber in between the laminate) to the modern style. Ahem. That's off-topic really. Cool to have a NIB one. And who cares if it's RERE

looks like we have another skater in the club, i've added a couple o pics at the bottom, check out my psycho stick i didn't start skating until 94 so i missed your era, i just learnt loads when working in the shop, and started collecting the small boards from bootsales, then it kinda got a bit out of hand, a bit like tamiya stuff really, just one second hand figghter buggy and then, well check my showroom, haha i probably have two boards for every one car in my showroom, OCD ?

Damn that's a cool deck. Vision had some of the best designs of that era. I've still got my Indy trucks on my old Santa Cruz Slasher deck. Makes me feel old to see they've rere'd that lol.

mikeekim

18-Feb-2007

oh yeah, i was gonna paint my new in box one like dugans truck but figured the arm and writing was to much effort and it would probably end up looking pretty shocking, the straight arrow truck is the easyier option and i will paint one like it one day i'm working at a local newsagents at the mo, which is cool, but i want to start a career in science only thing is i'm straight outta uni got my degree with honours but no experience, hich is what everyone wants, but no one will give it'll all work out tho, its all good. the suns out and the batterys are charged
