I’ve seen skateboards with logos for all kinds of drinks, including Pepsi, Coke, Mountain Dew and Sobe , but this is the first time I’ve seen an RC Cola skateboard. This particular one made by Super Surfer. They actually molded “Me and My RC” onto the top deck. The Super Surfer imprints on the bottom and trucks are cool as well. I can’t tell if those are plastic trucks or not. The baseplate is metal, but the trucks look like they might be plastic, although I don’t remember plastic trucks showing up until the 90’s. (UPDATE: They are indeed metal trucks.) Maybe this artifact isn’t as old as the seller claims. But then again when was the last time anyone heard the slogan “Me and My RC,” or Royal Crown Cola, come to think of it.
UPDATE: Thanks to Daymond Dodge for pictures of his own RC Cola board and KC for the RC Cola TV commercial.
These first few pictures are from an Ebay auction that ended. You can see the spot on the top where a sticker was applied.
These photos are from Daymond Dodge who owns a complete that is in better condition, which includes the sticker on top.
In-store display featuring the RC Cola skateboard girl.
Me and My RC skateboarding commercial from 1978. Delivering pizzas by skateboard, and she’s really skating. She must be some 70’s pro that I don’t recognize.
16mm print: Last year a 16mm sound print of this 30 second commercial sold for the low price of $12.50 plus shipping. I obviously need to retune my Ebay Alerts. I wonder if it went to Scott Starr.
UPDATE: Thanks to a reader comment from Entrancer, the skateboarder has been identified as Kelly Moran, sister of Happy Days actress Erin Moran.
