Over 440, 1947-1987 Chevy & GMC Trucks in one show.
We talk to people from allover the country – that have driven out to California to attend the Show. One family drove 2200 miles from Ohio to attend the show. They plan their family vacation around the show date. Now that’s AWESOME!
Another family, our buddy Ruben Salazar, drove all they way from Houston, Texas with 4 kids in tow!
We were able to catch up with Jake Oro, a college student who owns a sweet 1971 C10 that his Dad John Oro (aka the #Johnfather) DID NOT help him buy! He did it ALL on his own!!
My favorite interview of the day was Uncle Richard, this young 81 year old shares his story of how he started his restoration on his 1955 Chevy Truck when he was 74 years young. Thats right – 74! “You’re never to old to start!”
We talked to a lot of great folks that brought their trucks out, and some were just checking our others rides, either way the atmosphere was a fun family environment that was packed with bitchen trucks.
We were able to grab a few of the award winners just after they got their awards, so that was cool since some didn’t really expect to win, while others did!
We caught up with John and Marisol the winners of the “Best of Show” award – lets just say that John got a great 35th Birthday present. He was grinning from ear to ear, and rightfully so – well deserved award for this couple and their amazing 1968 C10.
Last we catch up with Jim Flanders of Brothers Trucks. We talk about how far the show has come in it’s 17th year and how crazy it seems that 17 years ago Jim and his brother Steve were planning their first show at there shop.
One story that Jim shares is about a family that had their daughter right after the Brothers first show and now he knows exactly how many years the show has been running based on his daughters age – crazy cool.
This show is like a family reunion for the Brothers Trucks family, friends, and staff. All hands on deck, everyone pitches in and helps, from kids to parents. It’s that kind of show, it’s that kind of company. They like to hold the show for their customers to be able to show off their pride and joy. Its really a way for the Brothers family and staff to not only give back, but see the fruits of their labor and know that on the other end of each order or the phone could be one of these 440 truck builders.
Fun show, good time, great people! Enjoy, Ronnie
