Hard Luck Of The Month
Three days after Jason Buncich was laid off from his job, he was rear ended by a teenage girl gabbing on her cell phone. The result is what you see here. Crumpled bedsides, demolished rollpan, curled tailgate and bed floor, and the bedsides are separated from the front bulkhead. The worst part is, she hit him hard enough to push the bed into the back of the cab! On top of all that, when the girl's mom showed up she started readin' him the riot act, like it was his fault for stopping at a red light. Even with the cop instructing the mom to leave him alone she just kept on yelling. So, to ease Jason's pain and suffering, we're hooking him up with a one-year membership to the FBI Brushed Club and a surprise gift from FBI. If you, or someone you know, has had something bad happen to a minitruck, and you have high-resolution pictures (no camera phone pics) we would like to see them. Send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org, or to Hard Luck of the Month c/o Mini Truckin', 2400 E. Katella Ave. Ste.1100, Anaheim, CA, 92806.
Kustomz Ink Klothing is our sponsor of the infamous MT Ink section. We figured it made a good pair! Be sure to check out kustomzink.com for the latest on custom gear.
Tattoos are rapidly becoming more popular in the minitruckin' community around the world. This once rebellious act is starting to become more and more mainstream. They're not just for bikers or ex-cons anymore! These days, minitruckers don't just show their support on their trucks, they show it on their bodies, as well. Keep sending in the pics to Galen.email@example.com.
Garage Of The Month
This month's garage belongs to Jahfar. If you go back a to the January '08 issue, he won the Lincoln Welding equipment in the under construction class at East Coast Havoc with his truck dubbed "PornRunner." Also, if you look closely you can see a former cover truck.
Rendering Of The Month
We have received several rendering submissions over the last few weeks of some really cool projects. From Eye Kandy Designs, we have a former feature from Xtreme Lowz. Next we have a Graphic Disorder rendering of a Crew Cab Colorado with a two-tone paint scheme and sitting on a set of big wheels. Last but certainly not least, Kutting Edge Graphix sent us an Hombre with classic styling and what looks to be a pretty wild suspension setup.
Super Cool DVDS
This month we got our hands on a copy of Twisted Inc's DVD, titled Most Hated. It's about an hour-long plus about 20 minutes of bonus footage. This DVD has a real underground appeal; it's upbeat and fast paced. Most Hated has a ton of show coverage, a wide range of feature vehicles, and several cool draggin' scenes. Twisted Inc. also carries shirts, hats, and other collector's items. To check out more from Twisted Inc. Productions visit TwistedIncDVD.com
