Mini Trucks may have seemed like a late eighties and early nineties fad. But in all reality it wasn't. Today this market has shrunk from its heyday, but can a new crop of mini trucks save it? And if they can, how different will this market be?
Follow AutoLooks as we take a journey from its beginning to its downfall, as we look at the Mini Truckin' Market.
Some aftermarket segments start from a need to look good or go fast. But for others, it comes out of an influx of vehicles. Mini Trucks were just starting in the 70's and by the 80's, most companies had at least one model. So how did this help influence the Mini Truckin' market?
As customizing and lowrider culture started to take off in the late 70's, so did the interest into making anything into a lowrider. Since cars, wagons and vans had been done, it seem obvious that trucks were next. And with an influx in small trucks on the used market, this just seemed like a great place to start from.
With some of our first vehicles becoming our eventual sweet ride, mini trucks seemed to explode onto the market in the late 80's. Was this because of the amount on the used car market, or is it due to a need to personalize anything? Only AutoLooks can help with this answer, along with the question on everyone's mind today. Can the influx of new mini trucks spark a renewed interest in this market?
