cool, glad you like it man. i realize tony is one of those dudes that people either really like or really don't, but i always thought he was ill.

It would probably be so fun to skate with this guy.

Wasn't Rupp on Silverstar as well? Kentucky - Atm Click - Calvin Klein model = Tony.

Nice one Chops.

chops said...

cox would be a trip.

and yeah, rupp was on there... mullendore, greg harris, andrew currie... a bunch of heads.

and looking back through some stuff, i forgot that tim o'connor was on illuminati but left before silverstar for element.

Royce59 said...

Tim O was on Illuminati, thats right. Did he have an ad?

chops said...

he was in a team shot but no singular ad of his own... and yes, look for it soon.

Royce59 said...

Illuminati team shot ad? Can't wait.

Did greg harris ever have a full video part? I don't remember him having one. I heard from some philly peeps that he was super good. Bums me out thinking of how good a Illuminati video would of been.

atm click - kentucky - chip van ham

i saw greg harris skate at a demo with oyola and... I wanna saw AJ Mazzu back in the day and Harris was super good. don't ever remember a video part from him... kinda faded like so many others when Silverstar/Capital fell. its a shame.

i've touched on this in posts before, but i really pulled for those companies and was genuinely bummed when they closed shop.

and chip van ham was really good back in the day. wonder what happened...

I remember the 411 rookies with tony cox where he's being pulled on a sled behind a car on dry pavement. Always one of my favorites. And on another 411 tip the silverstar industry section was edited so amazingly, i need to dig out that one again soon.

chops said...

davis, you gotta hook those up. for real.

i always kinda went in and out of 411 so i missed a lot.

davis said...

If i had the means to rip vhs to mpeg format i would blow some minds.
700 og copies of videos deep. missing a some early 90's but anything from 94 on i have.
oh yeah every 411.
its kinda silly.
