Cool My first ever SEMI 18-wheeler Show/Shine in Vegas

I've been to so many car shows, lost count years ago and they get more lame every year perhaps because I've seen it all. Skanky models, riced out cars and slammed rides that are useless.

Was in Vegas a few weeks ago for work and attended a semi truck convention, now these guys were amazing! Never knew people spend this kind of cash on a truck they actually used for work.

(most had over 500,000 miles+ on their cabs and were as proud as new parents) They were quite patience explaining a lot of the "mods" and features of the trucks and even gave me a first hand tour of a few

These guys drove from all OVER the country to attend this show and took them 2-3 days to clean the truck for the event. I learned during the show/shine once the event begins, no one can lift a rag to clean their car even if someone left fingerprints. If another competitor saw them cleaning, they would be DQ'd immediately!


enjoy the pics!

One of my favorite trucks there:




this one is super sleek, imagine renting stretched truck for your bday:



Complete show truck with matching trailer!

LOL I went to an auto show in Puerto Rico where they had a truck section. I was as shocked as you were! Wish I had more and better pics but I had a borrowed cheap camera that died on me.





Those are spinners and headliner speakers on the digger, and the truck runs mid 11's:
