    Chilled Express: instant classic

    Discussion started by Cracked Ass - May 10, 2004

    Man, these things are filling up fast. I have 15 so far, half of which are hurried crap because I'm willing to take a little extra risk to hit these. I redeemed the crap with a few nice pieces.
    These cars are going to be what the Solid Colds were in freight graff, a preferred surface due to flatness, white background, and great play. (In fact, they ARE the old Solid Colds, refurbished, so somewhere under the fresh paint, and your new piece, is probably some buffed history.) Some of the first few to be converted (it might be my imagination, but it seems like the ones with rivets down the side) already have that dirty, road-dusty look, the slow aging toward a beat-down off-white.
    Here's to a colorful future for this reefer fleet.

    I agree with Cracked, these things are beauties!!!!!!!! I haven't been able to get one yet myself..I was seeing them rolling, but not at our usual paint spot..Guess what, they just started appearing there, and I'm scoping out a possible assault..Also, hey Cracked, I think I found that wine spot..remember?..Thanks bro, hope to see you and _ _ _ soon..

    I wont lie or tell no bullshit!but i will say i have nothing but those white and gold refregerated upfe's in my yard all the time.Its just because where i live, we have a lot of produce in my area.I didnt know those whites were refurbished!if you notice they have all the refrigeration on the one side but it is actually on the outside, in which i belive the overall legth is longer. i have an estimated 1600 freight flicks of just upfe golds and whites!ever painted one?i got the flick!!this is no shit and the heads who know me will vouch for me!!!

    enjoy you golden oldies!!

    They are not old sold colds, chilled express is a whole different design, you can climb inside where the motor is, you cant do that with old sold colds, old solid colds are just stamped UPFE i see them daily.

    Wrong. There are a small number running with UPFE and BNFE marks. But the vast majority were herded together at a northwestern spot I will not name in 2001 and refurbished. That included cutting out the ends with the old refrigeration equipment and building in the new equipment. A lot of work, but UP probably decided the mass retrofit was cheaper than ordering a new fleet.
    Gold UPFEs are the next to go, some have been redone already and are coming out as white freshpaints with ARMN marks but retaining the old UPFE soft ridges.
