Hardluck of the Month
Danny Loudermilk, who resides in the great state of Texas, has the worst damn luck possible. It all started when his '99 Ford Ranger was stolen on August 30, 2006. Danny and his buddies busted their butts to help the Police department look for his truck. Well, Danny's luck sort of paid off when he received some leads and he got the truck back on September 6, 2006. The only problem was, the truck was trashed. Apparently, some losers had been joy riding in it and pretty much messed up the entire suspension setup. So, Danny decided to fix the truck and work on it for a few weeks to make it road-worthy once again. On September 22, 2006 the truck was finally on the road again, and everything was on the up and up. The next day, Danny decided to take his homie out for a ride, when suddenly a truck pulled out in front of him and he broadsided it at an intersection. The result was a totaled Ford Ranger and a pissed off minitrucker. Let's hope that things have changed for Danny since then.

Now that the show season is in full swing, keep an eye out for the cameras cruising your local shows. We just might catch you in the act of some seriously crazy cool guy stuff.

Go Ahead - Rip Your Roll Pan Off: Presented by Grant Kustoms
There are two things going on in Bowling Green, Kentucky, this year. First is Whistlefish from Vaperz CC, who will be ripping his roll pan over and over again, just like he did in these pictures he sent us. The second thing is he'll now have an even better reason to do so, because Havoc will now be held in his hometown. So Whistlefish, make sure and save some of that good ol' fashioned dragging for us when we come in to town in August.
Rendering of the Month
What you see here is a Frontier and a Taco, two trucks that will devastate the show field when they are finished. What we can tell by the renderings is that both will be low and bring new flavor to the mix. Check out the roll- down back window on the Taco, that's a mod that's gonna get the judges spinning on their heads. Or, that there are Xterra headlights on a Fro, woo-wee. Keep those renderings coming, we can't get enough. Besides, where do you think we get our ideas from? Just kidding.
Minitruckers are serious when it comes to ink and we love it here at MT. Club tattoos seem to be on the rise, and they also show some real pride.
