18 years later....it's finally mine!

I first saw this 18 years ago at the 1st annual Brothers Truck Show and I never forgot it, 17 years later he brings it again and still looks the same!...... anyone who has any old (January 2000) Truckin magazines might remember it as a centerfold back then, sooooo if you like retro, a lot of green, Kermit the frog, Mountain Dew or Slime you'll love this....

LOL Really there is nothing I need or what to change at the moment, I don't mind that the look is a little behind the times, I'm still diggin' the paint scheme, the only thing maybe later is the wheels but that's way way down the road.

Re: 18 years later....it's finally mine!

That's really nice. I like that the original builder didn't do away with a lot of what makes these unique. It looks like an original style stereo, column hasn't been changed out, and under the hood it's the same story. Yet it's more modern, with some touches that sort of lay out of sight.

Wow, awesome purchase!

What's the backstory? Built and only used it for shows?

Always think it's neat when these old magazine featured vehicles turn up years later still as fresh as when they were the hottest vehicle out there.
