Hardluck Of The Month
Jeremy had big plans for his truck, plans that didn't include finishing it. You see, Jeremy wanted to sell his Dime to buy another mini to build. Unfortunately for Jeremy, he was involved in an ugly accident with a driver who had no insurance or a driver's license. Now Jeremy says, he's stuck at home with no ride or way to buy another truck. Sorry to hear that, Jeremy; but if we are ever in your neck of the woods, we'll try and swing by to cheer you up.
So, you want a freakin' sticker? To get your hands on the new Mini Truckin' stickers, you need to follow these directions explicitly. They are $2 a piece. Cash! Do not send checks or money orders. Next, you must include a self-addressed envelope, including the prepaid postage. It must be in at least a 4x10 sized envelope, because the stickers won't fit in the small envelopes. And, if you send those, then they will have to be bent, and who wants a bent sticker?

Go Ahead!Rip Your Roll Pan Off
Whistlefish-ha ha, I can't even say that without laughing! Anyways, Whistlefish from Vaperz C.C. out of Bowling Green, Kentucky, owns this dragging Dime. It seems his roll pan has seen the ground one too many times. It's a good thing it's a bolt-on. We say, keep it off the ground, weld it in, and good luck with the next one.
Renderings Of The Month
It's been said, Mazdas aren't as popular as they once were. But, whoever said this has never been to the Northwest or just doesn't get out much. Every show we go to we see a ton of these square-body beauties throughout. Today, we have two very fine examples of Mazda projects, which are both clean and simple. Both of them were good enough to be in our Renderings of the Month.
Junior Of The Month
We were told Ethan Smith, the 1-1/2 year old you see here, loves to cruise. Can you blame him? Who doesn't? If you're 1 and your parents let you hit the switches, then you know you're on the right track. Keep your submissions coming for Junior of the Month. The more kid pictures we get, the more it'll make Mike want to go home and have his own. Send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Only A Minitrucker Would
Either there's a lot of minitruckers who are gardeners or lawnmowers are the next big thing. Brian Markline was working on his mini when he started to run low on funds. Still having that itch to cut something up, he decided to cut up his '79 Sears lawn tractor. This thing has so many mods, it could almost get its own feature. Every angle of this thing is lowered, cut, and painted. It has a 6-inch body-drop, relocated and flipped axles, and whatever else it took to get it static-dropped low. It also does 20 mph and has a custom flame-thrower exhaust. But, performance and stance weren't the only things they touched. It seems the 'mower even has shaved taillights with new clear taillights installed. With the help of his mom, dad, and buddy, he painted it and even made a custom seat. Now, this is crazy. This is truly something only a minitrucker would do.
Not everybody likes tattoos, especially those old ladies at the cracker barrel early in the morning. But, it seems many minitruckers do enjoy ink. We have tons already, but we'll keep running them if you keep sending them. Kustomz Ink Klothing is our sponsor for the infamous MT Ink section. We figured it made a great pair!
