Man if this doesn’t take things up a notch, I don’t know what will. First Tony Hawk with Jeep, now Greg Lutzka with Toyota. Yes, Greg Lutzka has a signature car coming out soon from Toyota. If that’s not pimp then I don’t know what is.
Seriously though, you don’t see other professional athletes getting signature cars. Its crazy the appeal that skateboarding has nowadays. I’m ot sure how many will be made, but I have a feeling it might be super limited. I noticed it states that a snowboard roof rack will be attached on top of the car. What happened to the trunk skateboard rack? Dude needs some skate orientated features up in his ride. Maybe like a built in compartment for a portable skate rail or something. Or some built in skateboard racks in the back trunk, that would be awesome.
There are probably tons of haters hating on Lutzka, saying he is selling out. But with all honesty, you know everyone out there hating would have to be stupid not to accept a free car from Toyota. Let alone whatever deal he is getting in top of that for using his name.
With skateboarding nowadays, anything is possible. Getting car deals has just taken things to an entirely different level and beyond. Cadillac? Ferrari anyone? Anything’s possible right?
