Here is Episode 3 of the OBS Clash Series and it is all about the return of the sport truck, with more Sport than ever. These trucks are rad, have great lines, and started a completely new market and sub-industry within the automotive aftermarket. It catapulted names like Belltech, Boyds, and more into the limelight and created a rock star world of sport trucks that hasn’t wavered much in the past 30 plus years. But there is a completely new resurgence with the OBS truck market and just like back in the day, the automotive aftermarket is jumping in with both feet. The difference this time? Well for one, the companies making parts have learned a few things since then and that means even cooler stuff that not only looks great, but performs.
Watch this great new video from AutoRevolution talking about the history, the passion, and the design, and also re-introducing, and re-imagining, a famous Sport Truck that was possibly the most famous of them all. You’ll hear from some of the most famous automotive designers and painters and builders in this one, along with the guys that were working behind the scenes at Belltech making what we now call Sport Trucks a possibility. There was a lot more going on behind the scenes than any of us realized when we were getting our full sizes out and lowered, and it was epic.
