I once traded an Alva Fred Smith t-shirt for a G&S Stacy Peralta warptail. It had holes drilled but the grip had no holes, so it had never been set up. I rode for Alva so the shirt was free. This has nothing to do with motorcycles.

Id'a kept the Alva t-shirt.  I only rode Dogtown back then, but the Alva stuff was always cool too.  That Fred Smith logo with him yelling with those dreads was rad.

You're kidding, right? Stacy Peralta Warptail? Unridden? I got Alva t-shirts by the box back then for free.

I live in Boston now, and see Freddy once in a while. His old bands the Loud Ones reformed, and play out again. Rad dude. Owns a tattoo shop in Newport, RI.

Just occurred to me, you're talking 70's on that deck.  Never mind, before my time.

  You're right.  Right as you said that, I realized what you were talking about.

Ok, here's the best I ever did. I had a rough 63 ranchero. I worked at an auto parts warehouse in Hollywood, when a gay couple came in and decided they weren't leaving without my 63.... I decided their baby blue 56 ford would do the trick. I drove home very happy with the trade and couldn't wait to get it home. As I arrived home a friend called and had just nailed a job on the T.V. show Happy Days. He stated they needed cars for the show and paid me to use the 56 ford. So if your watching reruns of Happy Days and see the baby blue 56 Ford Mainliner, that was mine. I made pretty decent $ and the car was quite a gem. Because of this they heard I had a few other cars. They used my 56 two tone Chevy 210 and my 40 ford truck (the truck never made it on screen).

Wow, awesome!
