I've enjoyed attending the Brothers truck show for years, and I have to say, this year's gathering was by far the best of a long line of annual shows. It's the norm for the show to draw a large number of the coolest trucks in the American southwest, and just like their catalog, the show caters to the 1947-87 Chevrolet and GMC trucks we all know and love. Among the vast number of early 3100s and later C10s that are always in attendance in huge numbers there's also a large contingent of Suburbans and Blazers on hand. Heck, this year there was even a small number of lifted 4WDs too, including Brothers' own Steve Flanders' good-lookin' lifted 4x4.

Speaking of the Flanders, those guys, and their entire crew, work their collective butts off ensuring that the show goes off without a hitch and that everyone (including the spectators) has a great time. Above and beyond the sea of cool pickups, Suburbans, and Blazers, there was live music (great music as a matter of fact) great food (thanks to a bevy of food trucks), and a huge raffle with a bunch of great prizes for the lucky winners.

Being a one-day show, the afternoon brought judging to an end and the winners drove away with a long list of awards and trophies as well. The fun-filled day soon whizzed by, and before we knew it, yet one more annual event was in the books and all us classic truck fans were already looking forward to next year's gathering.

So if you wanna be a part of next year's show, stay tuned to what's new on the Brothers website, www.brotherstrucks.com, and grab the parts that ya need, and finish up that project truck so you can enjoy next year's show along with the rest of us! Meanwhile, check out some cool pics of the show. For those that were there they'll be a reminder, and for those that didn't make it you'll get to see what ya missed.
