Me, Handgunner, and Brewer attended a show here in Akron today.....

WHAT A WASTE OF FUCKING TIME!!!


We were all pumped up because we saw that they were having a Colorado Class. And not to sound concieted, but we have some nice Colorado's so we thought that any once of us had a chance at SOMETHING.

We get there and there's 2 other Colorado's there. Both with MINIMAL mods...

This Xtreme had 22's, a K&N Intake, Grille and Taillight covers....THAT'S FUCKING IT!



This one was at the summit show so I didn't take a pic of it at this show. But he had a Grille, Rims, maybe a drop, Custom Box, Roll Pan, and a Ricer muffler hanging out the back....THAT'S FUCKING IT! I mean a Ricer Muffler on a truck.....come the fuck on.



And this atrocity had a Custom paint job and Rims...THAT'S FUCKING IT! The paint looked like a 3 yr old sprayed it. It was all chipped up, rubbing compound all over it, runs, dry spots, etc.. The mother fucking interior looked like he worked on a Farm it was soo filthy. He seriously probably hadn't cleaned it in 6 mo's.






Now I know we're all friends here and you guys might side with us because of that......but I want your honest opinion....are any of those 3 trucks better than any of our 3?

And here's a Kicker to think about. As far as we knew, there was only 6 Colorado's there, us being 3 of them. So they're ready to announce the winner and they're like...."In 3rd place...." We didn't know that there was going to be a 1st, 2nd and 3rd. So we're like fuck yea, one of us has GOT to get something, the others aren't shit. Yea.....WE DIDN'T EVEN PLACE!! The champaign colored reg cab got 3rd, and we're not sure which ones got 2nd and 1st. There might have been a super bad ass one there on saturday that we didn't get to see, but I doubt it.

We didn't want to sound like cry babies, but we felt that we deserve to know why we didn't even place when all 3 of us had WAY more done to our trucks than the other 3. So we asked the judges how they based their judging and they couldn't even give us an answer. Dude was tripping over his words and shit. Pretty much how it went was ONE GUY judged your ride, so if he didn't care for it much....guess what, you're getting low scores! Fucking Bullshit.

I dunno. Like I said, I/We don't want to sound like sore losers, or crybabies or whatever, but we felt that at least one of us should've gotten something. We all have so much done to our trucks, only to lose to a stock truck with big rims???

Re: Total Bullshit....

lol... car shows are pointless unless your there to just have a good time who gives a shit about trophy's.

I've learned from a few friends who feel the need to go and question judges after shows that it's a waste of time and you won't get anything but more pissed off. Let it go :shrug:

Oh and the xtreme on 22's is pretty slick... I can see why they picked it over your guys trucks since it's got big rims and is more showy, while all of your rides are clean and sporty.

Re: Total Bullshit....

Yea, we knew that it wouldn't do any good to ask and they weren't gonna be like..."Oh yea, you're right. Here, let me get the trophies back and give them to you guys". They probably made fun of us and called us crybabies after we walked away, but who cares. We just wanted to know why one of us didn't even place. We weren't expecting all 3 of us to take 1st 2nd and 3rd or anything like that. Just one of us should've gotten something.

I mean, you do all this work to your truck, you think it has a legit chance because the competition isn't too stiff, and you come up behind trucks with way less done to them. It's enough to piss anyone off, I don't care how cool you act about it....

Re: Total Bullshit....

It's DEFFINATLY a popularity contest at these shows....


This S-10 here takes best of show in every show he enters. It's a bad ass truck, but it's been like this for at least 6+ years. It's an old ass build and there's trucks out there ALOT nicer. Only because everyone in the whole minitruckin scene around here are friends so they give it to their buddy by default.

Re: Total Bullshit....

i know how you feel man... i entered a contest at my school... i dont have much done but i had enough to look decent and you could tell i took care of/modded my truck... well i entered the "stock truck" class of the contest (for mildy modded, mostly stock vehicles) and got NOTHING when i could see no other trucks cept for a few that fit in the category... one happened to be a colly... guess what he had? a system... that was it... bone stock with a system (and not even a fancy one or that nice of one)... when i was lowered/tint/exhaust/carpet bedliner/custom system with GOOD sound and a plexi/wood box (some aesthetics's [sp?] )... that truck got 2nd ( 1,2,3 ) and i got NOTHING... i wasnt there to win anything but when that happened i was like wtf

Re: Total Bullshit....

They had a point system. I wish I had a copy of the chart still but it went like this and they had examples of things beside the categories. Like Exterior for instance they were supposed to be looking for paint, doors, wheels, body kit, etc.

Exterior 1-5
Interior 1-5
Performance 1-5
Stereo 1-5

Now there supposed to give you points based on mods and stuff. So just for instance here is a list of my mods. Now the guy that looked at my truck wasn't to enthused when he looked at it but he was nice to me. He wanted me to tell him "What stuff I have done to my truck that he isn't going to be able to notice" I put an asstrick(sp?) beside everything I told him that I could remember. Some of the visual stuff I left out because it was obvious stuff like the tint.

Re: Total Bullshit....

No offense taken Dave. Your truck is nicer than mine for sure and you have alot more in it. I knew for sure that I would come in behind you, just didn't think that we'd all come in behind other colorado's.

And didn't they even have a "0" on judging? 0,1,2,3,4,5? That motherfucker with the custom paint should've gotten a 0 for his disgustingly filthy interior......

Re: Total Bullshit....

lol, like I said before... Don't question judging @ car shows. Especially if you don't personally know the host/judges. It'll just end up pissing you off.

And brewer... your prolly right bout the 20's and the hood. ;)

Re: Total Bullshit....

The whole experience just turned me off of shows completly. I'll meet up with 355's all day long, but I don't think I'll "enter" a show again. At least untill I have some full out custom ride.....
