Superman Tribute Truck Version 2

By SupermanLives

Have alot of the art ready for Version 2 just have not been able to look for a truck yet or even attempt to get one. Want it to be perfect for these plans. I know there are some of you wanting to see it already but until I find that "Special" truck I don't want any of the plans leaked. All I can say is there are aspects of Version 1 that will be included in Version 2, But it will be different. Version 1 took awhile so I hope all will stick around for Version 2. Version 2 is taking just as long to get started as Version 1 did. Hopefully it will all come together soon.

Superman Tribute Truck Is No More.

By SupermanLives

Unfortunately it was going to cost more to fix the Truck than it would be to build another one. As of June 1st the Tribute truck is no more. I stripped all the Superman stuff off the Truck and sold it. I do have plans for a 2nd Version of a Superman Tribute Truck but I have to find the right Truck for it first. As for now I am going to look back and remember all the smiles The Truck brought to the faces of Children at Car Shows.

Sad News....................

By SupermanLives

The Superman Tribute Truck is now sitting under a cover in the driveway. Last month I had a rear brake caliper lock up " didnt realize it" and because of the torque being pushed to the rear end I ended up shearing off a gear. So for now she is sitting waiting to be repaired. Hopefully it will be soon, I hate seeing her in the driveway not being driven and most of all not being shown at local shows.

My 3 Girls & My Wife have made everything worth it................

By SupermanLives

All 3 of my daughter's have won Trophies now. My 2 oldest won a Trophy each for The Superman Tribute Truck "Oldest Daughter Father's day 2010 & Middle Daughter July 4th 2010" & My youngest Daughter Won one for her 1989 Electric Batmobile Father's Day 2008. My Wife has even won one for The Superman Tribute Truck in July 2009. It is fun to see everyone get in on the fun of doing car shows. The 3 girls have learned that they do not win everytime and when they do it is even more special. Granted I hate things not being in an even number and now I have to get a 10th to make it all even, But it has been worth every bit of time and energy I have put into the Truck to see how they react when they hear their name called and they get to bring home that Trophy. The best part is all the work they do to help get it ready for each show.

7th Trophy Win

By SupermanLives

I won my 7th Trophy for the Superman Tribute Truck today Top 20.

Won a 2010 Camaro

By SupermanLives

Last Month I entered a Contest at a Local Chevy Dealer, "Hare Chevrolet" called the Hare Fantasy Test Drive. Well I won and I got a white 2010 Camaro. The reason i was picked was because my wife had to give up her Camaro years ago because we needed a family car. Well I won because of her but all she can do is ride in it because she had surgery on her knee and can't drive. But she does love riding in it. It is fast, My 3 Daughters and I named it White Lightning. Let me tell you, It earns the name. I may only get to have it for a few days, But for those few days this baby is all mine.

New Seat Covers

By SupermanLives

I finally got the pics uploaded, I changed the Seat covers in the truck to match the interior a little better. I loved the Blue and Red ones but since they were one of a kind i was a little worried something was going to happen to them so i got Black ones that go with the interior alot better and put the others up.

7th trophy win

By SupermanLives

I won my 7th trophy July 4th 2009, My wife entered the truck this time and she won. Just got around to getting it online.

Wife Had a Teenager Texting Hit Her Yesterday

By SupermanLives

A good reason why laws should be past against kids using cell phones while driving. My wife had a 17yr old girl hit her February 4th. When my wife pulled out there was nothing coming either way and then suddenly there is this black car. My wife saw her at the last second and the girl was looking down and riding the yellow line down the middle. My wife had nowhere to go. She never looked up or hit the brakes. When the girl got out of her car she still had a cell phone in her hand. Because my wife was pulling out on a cross street they are blaming my wife for this wreck. Even though the girl was also clearly speeding as she destroyed her car and shoved my 4,000 pound Jeep 10 feet before it came to a stop. The girl was driving a 2001 Ford Cougar that maybe is 2800 pounds. the speed zone was a 30 mph School Zone and after the body shop looked at the Jeep and from the distance it was pushed she clearly was doing more than 30 mph. So now because of a 17 yr old girl doing something she shouldn't have been My wife is having to take the blame and my Insurance is having to pay for her car. Just before anyone asks, the Jeep only had Liability on it as i just took the Full coverage off it Monday the 2nd. Sorry for my rant but i am sick and tired of all these kids talking on phones, looking for cd's, messing with IPOD's, and or Texting on cell phones and costing people their lives, their cars and Money. Thankfully my wife and 13 yrold Daughter were not hurt and are safe. Now all the Jeep is good for is parts or a nice lawn ornament all because of a 17yr old Child who has had her License for 6 months.

First and Second Trophy's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

By SupermanLives

well it finally happened The Superman Tribute Truck won 2 Trophy's in 2 weeks, i won my first trophy on May 3rd for "1st place for most unusual" and on May 10th I won in the Top 20. I will try to get pics on here ASAP of them. It was a great feeling to finally get 1 but to get 2 in 2 weeks after years of hearing "you wont ever win anything with that truck" makes it all worth it.

Noblesville Holiday Parade

By SupermanLives

Well we just got back from the parade and i think that the new designs "Thanks to the American Superheroes Museum in Indianapolis for that" on the Superman Tribute Truck went over very well with all the kids. Some adults liked it too. Started to rain about half way thru it but everyone toughed it out and stayed until santa came at the end. Happy Holidays everyone!!!
