Chicago Blowout

Vintage Chicago trucks

I’m in the burbs of Chicago for about a week for my grandmother’s 90th birthday. I didn’t get a chance to get anything scheduled before I left, so the updates from yours truly are going to be infrequent and brief. If any of the other contributors want to stage a coup and step up the posts, now’s the time. What’s the picture relevance? Those are vintage Chicago Trucks, harder to find a decent picture of than I thought. Couldn’t score a close up. Left: Current eBay auction. Right: A Bahne setup with Chicago Trucks via Surfa Sam’s 2005 Australian eBay report.

I’m in Naperville, actually. Since I last visited there is supposedly a new concrete skatepark in addition to downtown’s prefab park. I’m going to check them both out, but let’s face it, I’m not going to hold my breath.

  1. You should venture just east to Whiting. They have an interesting little park with 2 gigantic concrete holes. One hole is big, deep, smooth and fast… the other is lumpy, poorly designed and was poured by complete amateurs. Take your gnar. A bit north and on the coast is Wilson Ave park. Definitely worth a session if ya have time. Don’t waste your time at the one near(just a block or so south from) the McCormack center. It really sucks.

    Whiting turned out pretty well considering almost everyone involved was butt ass wasted for most of the job…

    Hope you can do a post on what you find out there. I’m going out to Chicagoland (elgin) in September. My mother-in-law told me about a call for voulnteers to “assemble” the new Elgin park. I’m stoked already.
