Please also read reference #8 on the article. 
This was a neighbor of mine and a childhood friend of my in-laws and other friends whose life was tragically cut short at age 21.  The family was very generous and donated the materials and trailer for a mobile skatepark for the children of East Bridgewater MA and others to enjoy and celebrate the life of Victoria Snelgrove.  I chose the trailer as the backdrop for my pictures to honor the memory of this amazing young lady.

My buddy had the light blue one as well. Scored his from a police auction in 87 or 88 and raced it  his beginner class with it. He had it set up pretty good, and it was fairly bulletproof.
