Truckin' Editors Note - Blessings and Beatings and Finally
In a world filled with chaos and constant uncertainty, it's refreshing that a man's handshake still means something. More times than I'd like to recollect, people tell me they want us to shoot their trucks and due to whatever circumstances, things don't work out that way. When talking with Aaron Iha, the owner of this month's cover truck, about shooting his truck at the 2005 SEMA show, we simply shook on it. Other magazines approached him and promised him a pot of gold but that made no difference to him - a man's word is a man's word. We were patient with him, he was patient with us, and in the end we now have the first import truck on the cover in over 20 years. This is a big deal. For all of you import haters out there, get over it. For all of you import lovers, sorry it took so long for us to show you the respect you deserve but it does take time for a full-blown custom truck to be built. I hope you enjoy this issue and the paint and body tips inspire you to go crazy with your rig. Sometimes all we need is an honest guy with integrity to get the job done (and done well).
