This would most likely be 73 but it could be 72. It was the big year for plastic boards. My green one is a custom, my brothers have GTs which were Makaha knockoffs. My board might have been a Bahne, I'm not certain. The others came with Cadillac wheels but they didn't say 'Cadillac' on them. They might have come out perhaps a year earlier. Not long after, I got better set of trucks and whistling Stokers and rainbow tape. We got all our parts for customization at the Schwinn shop on Santa Barbara. That's where I got my new trucks and Stokers. I got the biggest fattest Stokers they made. It looks like these old vintage boards are coming back into fashion. I also remember that my blank came with the holes pre-drilled so I could get the custom trucks. Do you remember the Black Knight?
My green board was totally tricked out - we were into street luge - when Deet let KK borrow it and he kicked it down the sewer. The summer of 74 I went to Paul Revere and was working on a new board that never got built. In the fall I went to private school and that was pretty much the end of my boarding career. Ahh but for a year or so.. I was right in the thick of it.
