Hard Luck Of The Month
Cody Grindstaff was traveling up a hill with a buddy when a drunk driver came over the top of the hill loosing control and hit Cody's truck. The drunk driver, whose name was not released, was traveling at an estimated 95 mph at the time of impact. The force of the impact was so great that if the truck was at stock height it would have caused the truck to flip over and thus resulting in more serious injuries. As it turned out, Cody and passenger walked away with minor injuries; unfortunately, the truck is totaled. Cody tells us that he was just about ready to paint his truck and bolt on a set of 20-inch rims.
So, to ease the pain and suffering, we are going to hook him up with a one-year membership to the FBI Brushed Club and also a mystery gift from FBI.

Tattoos are rapidly becoming more popular in the minitruckin' community around the world. This once rebellious act is starting to become mainstream. They are not just for bikers or ex-cons anymore. These days, they don't just show it on their trucks, they show it on their bodies, as well. Keep sending in the pics to Galen.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Garage Of The Month
One of our freelancers, Josh Fleetwood, recently finished his garage. As you can see from the photo, he has been working harder on his garage than he has been on his truck. But on the flip side, he is ready to have one, as there are a lot of Mothers cleaning supplies sitting on top of his toolbox. Just kidding Josh; can't wait to visit and help you out with those adult beverages, just make sure they're cold. Thanks bro.
Caption Of The Month
We have a challenge for you: All you have to do is come up with a snappy caption. The only catch is, no profanity or extreme undertones. Send your captions to email@example.com. You have until November 14th to submit your witty caption. On November 15th Mike and I will choose the winner. Send in as many captions as you can come up with. The winner will receive whatever Eddy has sitting out on his desk that isn't chained down or equipped with some sort of GPS device.
MT Junior Of The Month
Here is 10-month-old Landon. His dad tells us that he loves to hit the switches and holla at the chicks as they walk by. We have a feeling that Landon is going to be hard to keep track of when he gets older. Can we get a moment of silence for the parents?
