Forbidden Fantasy Show N Shine 2019
Laid out, Lifted and Lady Luck in Laughlin
For over two decades, the Forbidden Fantasy Show has been one of the West Coast’s premiere events. A few years ago, the show was moved to the Avi Resort and Casino in Laughlin, Nevada. This venue has its minor challenges like any other but it’s the unique beachfront parking and incredible view that really provide a backdrop like no other show. The Forbidden Fantasy crew has this show seemingly running each year like a well-oiled machine, even when unexpected changes to the plan get thrown into the mix. Although it was initially thought that the grass by the beach wouldn’t be usable this year due to construction, it was ultimately made available when the renovations were delayed.
On Friday afternoon, vehicles began rolling over to get their parking spot for the weekend. By Saturday morning when the show started, the grass was packed with quality trucks belonging to clubs from many of the surrounding states and even a 1987 Dodge D150 all the way from Michigan! The vendor area included booth display vehicles to show off products from Flo AirRide, LevelRide, Phat Phabz, Switch Suspension, Stone Fab and more. If the gambling opportunities inside the casino weren’t working out in their favor, the spectators were lucky enough to have beautiful weather all weekend. By Sunday morning, many of the participants were ready to pack up and make the trek home but not before the raffle and trophy presentation. Top 75 plaques were handed out along with a host of specialty awards as well as best-of honors. Over all, it was a stellar weekend in Laughlin with quality trucks, near-perfect weather and a lot of happy enthusiasts.
