Our club is holding it's 4th annual show for the American Cancer Society May 31st, '08. If anyone knows someone in the SE MI area that'd be willing to donate a meter and their services for the day please have them contact me. We'd like to have a lane set up for SPL testing with the proceeds going to the ACS.

We're also looking for things like amps, speakers, etc we can add to our auction. Last year CarDomain.com and DEI donated a Precision 4-channel amp. Street Legal Customs donated a remote car starter.

Any company donating will get free advertising on our site, registration sheet, and many other places. All donations are tax deductable.

Our '07 show was in the last issue of MiniTruckin' (Jan '08) and on DropJawMag.com. If anyone knows any local shops that would like to get in on the show please let us know!

Show details can be seen here: http://www.oaktowntrucks.com/carshow.html

Yup he's been up to Mt Clemens a few times. His truck is one of the cleanest rides I've seen.

The show's a big mix of people. Trucks, imports, hot rods, audio, and more. Everyone's there for a common purpose, raising cash for the ACS. I know some shows have issues but this is our 4th show and the only issue we've had was some Scion club that showed up last year and got WAY too competative in the tug-o-war. It was no biggie though. It's a great way to see vehicles that are a little different from what you see in your normal circles.

That's my friend and coworker Rob. Way more money than sense. Full Fox Racing suspension, huge turbo upgrade, propane injection, custom milled billet badges, and tons of Alpine gear inside. Last dyno run hit just over 700 hp without the propane. The engine is in the middle of being completly rebuilt to dominate at the truck tug-o-wars next year.

That's pretty *******. I know what you mean by more money than sense, you can buy them here with the lift kits and turbo upgrades for *only* $70g and like I said, everyone has them:rolleyes:

Ya, you're probably right about a lot of them. Hell, a lot of the guys I know that have bagged trucks don't even install systems. If things go as planned I'll have my Rainbow equipment installed. We'll see.

Not to get too far off topic but here's what the F250 looks like now.

Teardown. Notice the truck barely fits through the door and it's sitting on it's rims.

Ummm... yeah, you might get a nickel for both of those skanks together. lol. ****, was that the best chicks they could find to model for that show? I mean, I know Michigan isn't known for it's plethora of hot women, but I did see quite a few while I lived there.

I'd highly suggest a different outfit next time, in addition to different chicks.

Other shows in the area have strippers, etc that are brought in. Keep in mind though, this isn't that kind of show. It's a charity event for the American Cancer Society.
