I bought these trucks from a local scrap yard for less than £50 apiece. My mate Phil White and me took a Drag Bike 'The Flying Cornishman' in front truck. A mate of ours had bought the shiney truck from me and he transported a model Drag Strip. We had a great time pushing each other when we got stopped at a red light.
I bought the truck back and it eventually ended up with Mick Cooke, when he put the blower on his Camaro I ordered one as well for a '55 I was building at the time, we swapped the truck for a blower or something like that.
When I look at the front truck we were ahead of the times, almost ratty.
I do remember the show finishing early because of a bomb threat, can anybody remember that or am I imagining it.
