Thomas Morgan #6.

What about your Honda Civic?

Oh, it's run down. There is probably nothing that isn't wrong with it except for the stereo - the stereo is good and that's it. It's probably been to Ohio and back ten times. It's time for a new one, but I'll only buy a 1985, not one of those new ones. There isn't any class behind the new ones - 1985 was the year. The 1985 is by no means the fastest Civic, but they are the best.

All right, time to fire this thing up again. Thomas is from London, Ontario in Canada. He rode for G & S before becoming part of the Alien Workshop. He was primarily a vert skater, but switched to street in the early 1990s. I dig the Neil Blender art that has been added to the advertisement.

My first proper board was a Thomas Morgan "Whales" Alien Workshop.

I had the one with the frog on it in 1993. It had orange paint on the bottom and a blue top ply. Really good deck.
