    Yes fuck head... I am a benchmaster & I do enjoy documenting boxcar art to the fullest, I take full pride & pleasure snapping dope panels for preservation ....

    If it wasnt for me & a few other heads catching wreck on film Way Backin the day when this shit was young- waiting long hours on the daily only to catch a few of your tags rolling by this shit would not be as big as it is now!

    Boxcar graffitti is not ruined- this shit is more raw & uncut like the coke your aunt tilly is sniffing.

    I am just like the rest of the Fella's posting up here....doing it all for the love!!


    So just sit the fuck back & enjoy!!

    I would like to see some of your flicks tuff guy!
