Welcome to yet another primered appearance of the Construction Zone. We hope that by seeing more unfinished rides in the raw you'll come up with some new ideas of your own to complete the ride that's collecting cobwebs in your garage. If you have a ride that's not quite done but makes you want to shave, suicide, or chop something every month, then snap some of your own. Send them to us here at Mini Truckin' c/o Construction Zone, 2400 E. Katella Ave., 7th Floor, Anaheim, CA 92806.
