Meaning Behind the Name
The truck earned its name because mini trucks are never truly done they are only about there. We thought this was a very fitting name for the truck especially after all it has been through.
What was the inspiration?
I was always against bagged trucks when I was young and going through school. Until I met a friend in high school who owned a body dropped a S10 and took me for a ride in it. From there on I was hooked and had the fever. It was like a drug to be able to skate around town inches off the ground and drag! So I guess you can say that is what really got me hooked!
How long did it take you to build?
From February 18, 2017 to May 10, 2019 the truck has been rebuilt for different times since I’ve owned it. The most recent rebuild took right around 3 1/2 to 4 months. We tore everything on the truck off and completely stripped it down to a bare can and chassis no wiring, no interior, and no motor. We started from the ground up by starting the process to RHD swap it and set it up for a small block. Then we cut the firewall out and got all that ready for paint. After doing that we moved on to getting a 55 Bel Air dash retrofitted and swapped over for a RHD swap to come. After getting all that fitted and welded up/put in we then moved on to bodywork. And from there on it all started rolling pretty fast.
How long have you been building?
Well since this is my first mini truck not that long but I honestly didn’t even do much of the work myself. One of my very good and close friends Harley Dampier did about 99.99% of all the work that is been done. Most people know him for some of the other trucks he has built like Black Night and Peachin. Harley honestly has built the baddest trucks to ever come out of Missouri.
Your future plans?
The only future plans I have for the truck or that I want to build the motor in it. Other than that I can honestly say I don’t have any ideas sadly.
I bought the truck out of Stella Missouri from a gentleman named Mickie Robinson who bought it for his son
I want to give a huge shout out to Harley Dampier for making all of this possible and then some. When you bill the truck you shoot for the stars and brother you have went well beyond that. A special thank you to my mom, dad, and grandpa for all the support and help I love you all very much. Also thank you to all my friends who have supported me and pushed me to go well and beyond bounds with this truck!
