    PAINTED AMTRAKS

    Discussion started by chester copperpot - Oct 10, 2002

    i've seen about 3 roll by in the last few weeks, and a couple others that had been poorly buffed, just random unreadable throwups so im not sure where they were done, but it definately wasnt local kids. has anyone else been noticing this lately?

    This could be a sign from God.
    To everyone who has access to Amtraks: This could be the next big thing. Ever hear the story about when NYC was broke in the seventies?
    You know what to do.

    Sounds like an opportunity for you to regain some of your lost credibility in the 'graff world'. Painting Amtracks will get you the kudos that freights never will! Pictures please.

    never saw amtracks painted, not in real life at least. but ive been in yards where there were amtracks on the next track. i didnt touch the amtracks because i knew it would heat up the spot, and i guess it means more to me to have my shit run as opposed to just painting a train because it has windows and settling for a flick. bottom line: these amtracks were just as 'easy' to paint as the freights.
    and believe me with david gunn rinning shit, it will never wind up like the ny subways. no matter how deep into chapter 11 they are. i could see that guy coming out of his own pocket to clean graffiti off of a train.

    oh shut up. not everybody in america is just into freights, (i think they kinda suck), and i for one couldn't give less of a fuck what the "graff world" thinks of me or the country i live in. what is the graff world without america anyways?i love alot of european shit and i would do clean trains all day if there were any within a few hours of me, but to most american writers america IS the "graff world" and graf anywhere els is a cheap imitation. i disagree with that, but i just thought you should know that nobody here cares about your approval.

    hey asshole if it wasnt for us, you probably wouldnt be into painting at all, can i remind you of the new york subways,,, amtracks today get hit, as well as most regional cleans on the reg, so we dont need to prove to the world anything, we prove it to ourselves,,,,, our freight scene is just an added bonus of the whole painting of trains game, keep playing follow the leader then get back to me.

    For anyone who thinks that graffiti wouldnt be shit without AMERICA....True in a way but any other AMERICAN state wouldn`t be shit without NYC so stop fucking saying Americans invented graffiti and should be the only ones doing it.....Unless you are from NYC you shouldnt be able to say anything like that...And still your a uptight egotistical fuck headed bastard if you do.......
