When you're always looking towards the future, sometimes you forget to stop and think about the memories of the past.It's hard to believe the Dropt 'N Destroyed show is in its fifth season. The show started off like most, as a small local show in a little parking lot and has now turned into a big event. On September 27th & 28th, Dropt Out held their fifth annual show at Boettler Park in Green, Ohio. This park was a big upgrade from the previous year's location offering more room to cruise, park, tell tall tales, and most importantly reminisce of days past. This year's event was also a little different from the past as the goal was to raise as many toys as possible for the children in Akron Children's Hospital. Minitruckers could cut their admission in half by bringing a toy to donate. Most everyone brought toys to donate and the Dropt Out crew was able to collect much more than expected. During the two day event, Sloan Product set up to show off their amazing painting talent, and Drop 'Em Wear? and Drop Jaw provided everyone with plenty of options on gear. Minitruckers came from all over bringing out a variety of different custom rides. The rides awed the locals with the quality of work, the crazy ideas, and most importantly the positive atmosphere that minitruckers can create. If you missed the show and the amazing time, make sure to check out Sikness Video because they didn't miss a second of the highlights. The Dropt Out crew is already working towards the future, so stay tuned because Dropt 'N Destroyed 6 is right around the corner.
