17th Annual Brothers Truck Show
400 Chevys in the Shade
Every summer here in SoCal this editor is reminded to drag out his former Truckin Project Old School and clean it up because one of the coolest local truck shows is just around the corner. Brothers Truck Show & Shine is in its 17th year, and is always held on the shaded grass of Featherly Regional Park in Anaheim, CA.
While the show is packed with all the usual suspects and familiar faces, there are always a handful of fresh trucks debuting at the show and making a big splash. The Best in Class award is a coveted one that everyone wants to win once in their lives, and the overall best of show is even more so, as that truck will then be slated for the next year's Brothers catalog, which is like the modern Sears catalog for Chevy and GMC fans. Some of the standouts for this year included Best in Class for the '47-'54s, Chris Burgess and his Devious Customs-built '52 GMC, looking ever so cool in chocolate brown with black trim and a hint of gold leaf. As usual, our buddy Juan Trevino won '60-'66 with his killer copper Suburban. Another old friend Dennis Sever won best Under Construction with his nearly-completed blue and silver Suburban. Brothers Choice went to Rob Phillips and his Road Race C10R, and Best of Show as well as best Paint for a '67-'72 C10 went to John Schick and his Killer Ice Blue example.
If you're in driving distance of SoCal and are looking for a fun trip next summer, head on over the Brother's show. It's the most C10s you will ever see in one place. Not even Disneyland can say that!
