I think it was the Plan B Mike Carroll slick that I bought (If I remember right it was the one with him chillin by the drop-top Caddy) that I found out that my Venture V-8s wouldn't fit the new truck hole pattern.  The guy at the shop said it was to get everyone to buy new trucks and boards.  At the time I was pulling all kinds of crazy slappy noseslide tricks and just shredding the two front truck bolts to the point of having to pry them off with plyers and a screwdriver!  But with the new hole pattern, the front (and back) bolts were left unscathed after days of nosesliding to fakie nosegrinds on five inch high curbs!

That would have worked better than what I had, 48mm Daredevils (I think it was Consolidated's short-lived wheel company) with plastic cores, but after a few days, the wheels started turning around the cores instead or the bearings.  To bad they only grew corn instead of potatoes where I lived, ya know.

I only remember getting new pants that didn't fit in '93. And they were purple.

Worst day ever was when I brought home my brand new Uncle Wiggly Argyle and tried to put the trucks from my Logan Earth Ski on it. The bastard at the shop said they would fit.  Cry

^ is that some sort of old timie 3 hole to 4 hole reference? All I hear is oldnest...

I remember being told a year before the change and not caring, and when the change happened I still didn't care. You could still get a deck with the old holes for like a year after the switch. The first time I ever own a McGill was because my old trucks fit.

Do you guys remember when Albert Einstein invented polyurethane? That was nutz...

Thanks to the late Robert Chesebrough, my style became infinitely more relaxed following the invention and subsequent commercial release of Vaseline. 

1859 was a good year indeed.
