    Orange Blossom Special's: Where are they now?


    Members do not see advertisements
    I know us guys are all about monster trucks but, has anyone heard about Allen Gains and his trucks including the Tank train monster and the original OBS. Those were awesome staples of any USHRA event and man he could put on a show. Any info would be great. I hope he is doing fine and the original OBS is in a museum or even better still grinding up a pulling track somewhere. Thanks guys!

    Allen is still running the Orange Blossom pullers at a few events a year. I am not too sure if he still has the tank or not. If you look through the last few months of the old skool pic thread there are some pics of him running the truck this past September.

    He does alot of pulls around here, within 2 or 3 hours of his home in Georgetown, KY. Pulling season is comming up this summer, so I'm gonna see if I can find where he's gonna be and snap some pics for you guys.

    I always thought The OBS Tank/Train was the coolest thing ever built of all the tanks.

    Brandon, if you can find out where Allen is going to be pulling please let me know. Espically if it is in Northern Ky. or even Ohio. I'd love to see him pull again. Thanks man.

    Well Georgetown is really clost to Lexington, which is about an hour to 90 minutes away from Cincinnati, so wherever he goes won't be much more than a days drive from there. I'll see what I can do, when we get closer to pulling season.
