Forbidden Fantasy Show N Shine 2017 Presented by Viair
Wild on the River
Forbidden Fantasy Show N Shine 2017 Presented by Viair, celebrated its 20th year of representing the scene with custom fullsize trucks, minis, and all forms of vehicles that sit flat on the ground. In only its second appearance at the Avi Casino in Laughlin, Nevada, whose compact show area led the promotions team to be very selective over which vehicles were going to be occupying the best spots up on the grass-lined display area overlooking the Colorado River.
That meant the primo spots were reserved for the best-looking trucks and cars with the Forbidden Fantasy crew personally reviewing each vehicle and critiquing its build quality. All in all, the show was more intimate and the trucks themselves were all heavy hitters. Add to that the promise of a pool, a full casino, great food, and nightlife entertainment, the setting could not have been better. The location has turned this show into a destination with many participants going for three, four, even five days to enjoy all that this ideal setting has to offer.
This year, Viair had stepped up to be the presenting sponsor and had a huge showing at the show with a booth, a photography team covering the show, and a great showing from display vehicles running Viair products. Some of the other companies on hand included Canadian Chassis Components (CCC), also a sponsor, Flo Air Ride, Hammerd Apparel, Grinder TV, and Switch Suspension. This type of show cannot follow the big-getting-bigger mantra of other shows because the size of the venue will never grow, and it doesn’t have to. It’s limited for a reason, attracting the best of the best. And the Forbidden Fantasy staff knows what to look for, how to plan a great show, and after all, that is what going to truck shows is all about.
