Identify the year bitchin graphics like this we're considered bitchin...



What angle/duration grind was used on the Engle cam installed in this 289? Bonus points if you can identify the POS brand of headers installed on this bad boy.

Did anybody skate back in the 70's?

This was my first real, paycheck type job. I got the job in '76 and left when I graduated highschool in '79. I was offered the job after painting a surf mural on the wall in the shop.

We took my trips to the pipes in Arbuckle, up to the spillway pipe at Berryessa, and a couple trips to the Upland park. Always had an eye out for empty pools to skate too.
