YouTube - Rob Dyrdek: Skateboard Car from Fantasy Factory (Original)
(I hope this isn't a repost. I looked but didn't see it)
This is what happens when you bring World Champ Drifter, Vaughn Gittin Jr (also an ex pro-skater) and pro-skateboarder Rob Dyrdek together. The 2011 GT
that they used for this skating project was equipped with a grind plate and, of course, griptape. California
Skateparks also built custom rails and quarter pipes for the special occasion.
Vaughn, a former skater, says: "Ever since I started drifting, I was constantly reminded how close it is to skateboarding in the fact that it is truly a lifestyle and an action sport that takes a ton of passion and talent. Whether you are on a board or manhandling a car, you can have the freedom to show off your personality and style. For about three years now, I have been dreaming of taking the car control I have from drifting and doing skateboard tricks with a Mustang. I didn't even have to mention the idea twice to Rob, as he was all about it immediately. He was not scared behind the wheel either! Believe me when I tell you, he also went BIG in the skateboard car."
