About a month ago the idea to do a follow up to the fairly well received ‘Old School Minitruck’ Theme Tuesday began to creep into my head but it wasn’t until I came across The Coalition of OG Minitruckin on Facebook that it really came together.
After almost immediately losing an hour of my day upon discovery, I sent the page admin an email and we agreed that it’s been far too long since some OG (traditionally styled) minitrucks have been posted on Stance Is Everything.
Looking through the wealth of pictures and information the page offers I can’t help but wonder how today’s trends will be viewed several years down the road.
Part of me can’t wait to find out and the other part of me remembers owning a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fanny pack.
Eitherway the individuality in each of these trucks speaks volumes.
This photo should set the tone of how far back we are going with this post
Check the detail in the door
Taz was incredibly popular in the nineties I know I had that green pillow, myself. It’s little unfortunate you don’t see murals so often anymore.
Glass art is also seldom seen
Drip paint, louvers, and reversed wheels, OG at it’s finest
Kitted out shaved s10
Trackers never really did get low enough for me but were a staple of the OG scene
Astro’s take things back… can’t think of the last time I saw one at a show (or elsewhere for that matter)
Tilt beds and toppers are another staple
Pushing aggressive fitment before people were calling it aggressive fitment
Long bed short box, scallops, chrome fender trim, so classic. Love the window on the topper too.
For some reason this reminds me of that often spoofed scene of John Cusak in Say Anything
Choptop Datsun on Welds?
Bed dancing Tandems anyone!?
Hell I would take both the bike and the car today
Looking in the comments of this photo on their fanpage it seems as though this truck may have had an influence on a few local Rangers, most notably Gary’s truck
This one was spotted on ebay
Seeing this makes me want to fly to TN and drive back a clean Blazer
Looks to be just about half the wheel tucked..
Japan really digs OG minitrucking style and Datsuns take well to it
Like I said Japan loves it…
This truck is actually recently finished in Japan
Trucks as big as this can’t die, the OG page admin tell me this truck is being rebuilt
Though this picture looks sad this is also being rebuilt currently
As is this
Some info around what’s known as the ‘first’ body dropped truck, ever.
Big thanks to the guys at The Coalition of OG MiniTruckin for letting me share these photos with you and I encourage you to take a look around his page.
It’s perhaps the best source of mini trucking history to date.
