Axial’s marketing crew went out for a location scouting session recently.
October is the “official” start of what is called “desert season” as the day time tempratures are nice and cool. Since our planned trip to visit Rory of Racers Only [look for a blog report soon] would have us driving right through the desert, we took advantage of this time-temprature to scope out some new locations for an upcoming SCX10/Wraith video-photo session. So follow along for the awesome sites and look closely as you just never know what you will find! Let your imagination run wild!
A road will lead you to many places…
We chose the first one as that was our original plan and had no idea the same road would take you to “other” places…
We called this one Boxing Glove Rock
When you run up on a gate with this much creativity on it, you have wonder what is back there… But, the gate-art itself is made from a steal file shaped into a snake… First, it’s steal, to mold it into that shape it takes some heat and some imaginative talent AND it’s on a gate in the MIDDLE OF NOWHERE!!! Go figure! Yes, we want to know what is behind this gate also! Add that to the “Find Out About” list.
CACTUS-CACTUS-CACTUS…… and MORE CACTUS:
It’s not like there are just a couple cacti here and there – they were EVERYWHERE – EVERY BUSH IS A CACTI BUSH!!! I have never seen so many varieties of cactus in one area or location outside of the Walmart Garden Center! There is no walking along and looking elsewhere! If you want to site-see, stop, look and then walk! Add chewing gum for extra points.
This we called dolphin rock.
Found this sign in a gas/food station on Route66:
It was the only gas-food in a 86 mile span on the freeway and the burgers where good. The place was a little strange, but good… We placed this location on the “been there – done that” list so we sought out another exit on the return trip.
YES! A real deal truggy on 42″ desert tires!!! Holy flippin’ Batman in a ‘Vader suit! And it is on 20″ wheels!!! Those ruts just keep getting deeper…
Remember making fun of those other trucks on 44′s?
And then if that was not enough, Brad said the ‘Yota on 44′s reminded him of Stomper 4X4′s! Who remember those?
Stomper 4X4 Trucks Original Commercial:
Stomper City 4×4 – Episode One ©1980
Stomper 4X4 Pull Comp Video – WHAT!?!??!
OK, sorry for the side-track, but it just goes to show you the passion for all things 4X4 that we have!
Someone at “Mikky-D’s” corporate wanted corporate to buy these so they could get them at the group discount price:
EMECO 1006 Aluminum chairs – love these! Also called the “Navy Chair” Read more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emeco_1006
We always get asked how we come up with creative stuff…
This is how the advertisements get done. They get drawn out in the dirt and then scanned into this machine where you add .63 cents and it spits our pretty artwork. All within 24hours! Rush fee is $63 and 63-cents. Now if you want this same rock picture to transform into motion picture, just add $633 and yes, it excepts credit cards.
Exposed video sniper location. We surveillance, detain and place here:
Hey Tony Phalen, we have a new product to show you….
Way out in this cool location.. In the desert.. Yea, sure, we can take you…
Black unmarked “borrowed” truck on a lonely road.
This trip is on the “TO DO” List – one day!!! There is a book and map for the trip.
Step 1 has been made:
Will Parker “request” Stomper 4X4′s for a time-bonus skill section at the next RECON G6 Challenge?
What was that in the “shoe” photo’s background?
Stay tuned to find out these answers and many more that we have not thought of yet: http://www.facebook.com/axialinc hit the L-I-K-E please and thank you!
