Red's MT Custom News
I guess as the new guy on the Mini Truckin' team I should start by telling you a little about myself. Don't worry, this will all be over in a minute. Everybody who knows me calls me Red, because that's the only name I gave them. My real name is actually Robert Hall and I have been around minitrucks since 1989. Air ride was not around yet and we would push cans and cigarette packs across the high school parking lot to see how low we were, and that was 20 years ago. I feel quite old now that I said that, but I still live the life of a minitrucker day in and day out and I don't think that will change anytime soon. I love going to shows, building trucks, talking a lot of crap to the people I call friends, and partying until I wake up and say "Why did I do that?" Now that I'm part of the team here, my goal is to bring you the news that matters, YOUR news, and whatever else I want to talk about that happens in the scene. There won't be any crap that minitruckers don't give a rip about, just real MINITRUCK news. I will also STILL be doing my weekly video broadcasts, so make sure to sign up at Minitruckinweb.com and check them out to get in on the freebies and all the action. Now as your official "News Editor" let's get started.

It's Time for an Upgrade!
That's what Vini Madrigal with B.A. Rod'z & Kustomz was thinking when he decided to relocate into a bigger and better location. The old shop was not only hard to find but it was only 5,000 square feet. "Sounds like Vini had problems most of us wish we had when it comes to shop size." The new location is 12,500 square feet and is easy to find. If you have never heard of B.A. Rod'z & Kustomz, hear is the quick lowdown. They are minitruckers hiding out in a cleverly disguised hot rod shop that can build anything your little heart desires. They pride themselves on the full one-off sheetmetal and chassis fab work they do. Outside of the chop tops, body sections, and full restorations, they also do full-blown custom interiors and paint. For more information, call (205) 807-6353 or visit Myspace.com/ba_rodznkustomz.

Minitrucker Custom Plates
We decided it was time to properly outfit the office and show off for all the visitors and other magazines that aren't quite as cool as us, but we need your help. We want to decorate wall-to-wall with custom license plates from every state and from around the world. So each month we will be featuring a cool custom plate that one of our generous readers was kind enough to donate to the cause. The creativity that goes into some of these one-of-a-kind plates is amazing. If you would like to help out and mail us your extra custom plate, email us at mini.truckin@sorc.com for all the details. This month's plate was donated by Ty Guthrie from Lewiston, Idaho, and reads: SLAMMED.
