Huck Gee – Kokio’s Courier Service Available for Hire
If you need, absolutely, positively, without-a-doubt, NEED to get the package somewhere on time, safe and sound, who are you going to call ? USPS? UPS? FED-EX? If you like living dangerously sure… Me? I just might pony up for Kokio’sCourier Service with technical and creative support by none other than Huck Gee.
So at first glance, Huck’s latest limited-edition custom is pretty slick. You might think he’s gone the kit bash route, found some sweet toy car to deck out as the bunny-suited Kokio Dunny’s all-terrain courier mobile. And you’d be wrong… Huck spent over nine months designing, casting and assembling the custom bad ass vehicle with the huge tires. This project is as awesome and as ambitious as it gets. Huck has essentially turned customizing toys into full-blown production quality toy-creation on a super small scale. I wonder what’s next?
Limited to just ten sets, Kokio’s Courier Service complete with everything you see and a fancy laser-etched wood box, is available now for pre-order (5-6 week delivery) for $3500 each. Drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org. Oh and btw, this is Huck’s last custom set for the year.
"When you need speed, skills, discretion and the best simply isn't good enough. When your job requires a minimum of questions, had to be there yesterday and your life may or may not be riding upon that fact. When you need a bad ass motherfucking wasteland rat wearing giant pink bunny ears waving around a samurai sword in a bagged all wheel drive desert buggy... you call Kokio's Delivery Service.
™ and strap it into her air stabilized Desert Rat 1200. And if you are at all concerned about the Northern Wastes most notorious motorcycle gang that you pissed off back in Old Hoots Crossing getting a hint that this delivery is in fact one of the last remaining copies of 'Hell On Wheels' season 3? Well Kokio can take care of that too."
Kokio will personally meet you in a ramshackle wasteland tavern to discuss any necessary details over the establishment's din of whores, bikers and a piano player. She will then ask no impertinent questions and will offer her 100% satisfaction guaranteed delivery to the time and place of your choosing. She will carefully pack your fragile contents into an Albatross Secure Seal Case
