Please also read reference #8 on the article. 
This was a neighbor of mine and a childhood friend of my in-laws and other friends whose life was tragically cut short at age 21.  The family was very generous and donated the materials and trailer for a mobile skatepark for the children of East Bridgewater MA and others to enjoy and celebrate the life of Victoria Snelgrove.  I chose the trailer as the backdrop for my pictures to honor the memory of this amazing young lady.

My buddy had the light blue one as well. Scored his from a police auction in 87 or 88 and raced it  his beginner class with it. He had it set up pretty good, and it was fairly bulletproof.

Very nice build.  The black skyways look sweet.
