The 2002 Spring Break Nat's - Custom Truck Show
Hey, Who Parked the Show On the Beach?
This might be a first, even for truck shows that are held at the river. At the Spring Break Nat's in Laughlin, Nevada, we watched several show-goers park their boats and PWCs on the shoreline of the Colorado River and walk a mere 20 feet up the sand to the show, where they detailed their minis under the warm Nevada sunshine. Sure, there have been shows and runs at the river before, but we can't recall one that actually took place on the shore.
Held at the Avi Resort and Casino, CGS Motorsports' show took off with a bang and never looked back. Two live bands played throughout the day, and a grip of vendors displayed products with show-only pricing. Colorado Customs and Line-X were the title sponsors of the event, which was cool because it brought out the Line-X girls and resulted in trophies made of solid billet aluminum, courtesy of Colorado Customs. Another bonus was that the majority of the showfield was parked on grass rather than the usual dirt or asphalt. It was all beer bongs and thongs early on as the show got underway and the party got started. A few highlights for us was seeing Southern California resident Chad Lucas roll out his 'bagged, body-dropped, and blown Nissan Pathfinder. Keep your eye open for a future cover shoot on this high-performance, cutting-edge door-slammer built by Grant Fab. Another trend-setting truck in attendance was the body-dropped Tacoma from Trevco that featured brand-new front sheetmetal and a molded rear frame clip. The usual detailing and trophy winning took place, and everyone seemed to enjoy the atmosphere of another show at the river.
