Im the guy that did the pinstriping on this truck, in Phoenix AZ. Early 80’s the Allison backfired and blew the home-made intake apart, with one large piece sailing into the crowd,narrowly missing several people’s heads as it spun by. I striped it in front of a very large crowd no charge to Jeff,never even got a poster,if anyone sells them ,I’d love to have one.
