Ed, Well, if you want to put July 1991 into context, I was 1 month away from
starting my Freshman year at Fredonia State College in NY.

Thanks for the information.

July 1991. Gee, my hair actually had color other than gray back then!
The truck side frames were Symington-Gould and the trucks were spring
plankless. My preference for these is the Tichy so-called "Bettendorf"
truck. I think this truck captures the right appearance as well as any.
Richard or others might want to give their insight.
