Hehe awesome. I catch a shitload of those breadboxes considering my bench spot is near a steel factory. I always called them coilcars but I like Breadboxes better.

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!

I've been seeing lots of RBOX's around here lately, very rare for these parts. I caught an RBOX with a CN paint job too.

 

P.S - This thread rocks...

never heard of those before -define

maybe I have a flick somewheres.

 

 

also those hotties are only found in & around East Chicago Indiana,

At night those cars glow orange-due to the super hot steel in them

When standing 50 feet next to them you can feel the heat.
