Mini Truckin' Jr. of the Month
For those of you who aren't quite cute enough to make it into our pages, there is still hope for your blood line. No matter how strange or demented a little kid can look, they are still cute in their own special way. Especially when in the company of Mini Truckin' magazine or helping pops out in the garage. Wherever your kid gets their mini-trucker moment of inspiration, we figured, what the heck, here is some space to see whose kids are most die-hard in the mini-truck scene. For this month we bring you one of the most hard-core MT Crayola pushers around. Hunter, take a bow, throw the shocker, and hit Gooch in the nuts, this is your coming-out party -- you're number one!
Rendering of the Month
This amazing '95 Chevy Blazer four-door was rendered by Nick Crouch of Surface Art to depict exactly what Alan "Farva" Jackson envisions for his new ride. Appearing at SEMA '05, Clyde and the Silver Star Customs crew in Horn Lake, Mississippi, will have completely transformed this Blazer into the Blazerado. Farva's ride will feature completely shaved rear doors and tailgate. The Blazer is reskinned using the Chevy Colorado front end and fender skins. A huge 36x52-inch all-glass sunroof might help out Alan's pale complexion. Powered by a '95 Corvette LT1 chromed-out from Street and Performance and sporting 22x8.5-inch B.A.D. K5 wheels, it seemed only right to go the extra mile and use SSBC 13-inch rotors and performance calipers all the way around. A huge Memphis Car Audio system using 12 12-inch M3 subs, three Memphis Belle amps, and way too many Memphis goodies to list will all reside in the metal and fiberglass interior mostly painted to match. Farva reminds us that his new ride will indeed be "layin' body, beeotch" and will feature the best-name products in the industry, including Dakota Digital instruments and Viair compressors.
