Once you do you'll start seeing some of the wackiest, wildest and most fun car photos, videos and stories this crazy thing call the Interwebs can provide.
Oh, and if you win you'll get a trip for two to Las Vegas, including flights, three nights accommodation and entry to the industry-only SEMA Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center. It's only the world's largest aftermarket car parts expo and a bucket list item on every car guy's list. No biggie.
This is not your typical thread….but it is DEFINITELY the most important thread I have ever started…
For those of you who may have missed it, one of our fellow members, Drewactual, did the coolest thing I have ever seen in all of my years of being on these forums. When one of our members, a wounded veteran that goes by Bearkiller, developed a problem with his truck, he came to this forum to seek advice. Ultimately that member’s truck wound up at Rudy’s. To make a long story short, that member was a little short on funds to get his truck fixed the right way. He did not ask for any help, but Drew took it upon himself to see that it was fixed right. Drew called Rudy’s on his own and without telling Bearkiller what he was doing so that Bearkiller could not decline his offer and Drew paid the remaining balance. The forum I am referring to can be viewed at: http://www.powerstroke.org/forum/6-4...-s-instal.html
To me, that demonstrated what a stand up guy Drew is. As it turns out, Drew did something even more admirable as you will see….I had decided that I wanted to try to do something for Drew for what he had done. My initial plan was to make a thread about his actions and ask members to chip in a few bucks to pay Drew back. I contacted one of the administrators for this site to see if he would agree to collect the funds and distribute them to Drew. The administrator liked the idea and was all in, but he wanted me to get Drew’s permission first so I sent Drew a PM. Drew told me that he wasn’t interested in... [Read More]
There's going to be something different about the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this year that might be worth planning a trip around. This year, the show's organizers will give people in Sin City a chance to see the show in person regardless of whether or not they are directly affiliated with the automobile industry. SEMA is one of the largest trade shows the city hosts every year, but normally admission is reserved for people who are there on "official" business. Typically, that means its a mostly off-limits mecca for modified car enthusiasts, but that won't be true this year because on Friday, November 7, much of the show will be publicly on display for "SEMA Ignited." From 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., cars from the show will pour out of the Las Vegas Convention Center onto the Strip. The show's organizers said they decided to add the event because there have been so many enthusiasts crowding around the exit at the end of the week to watch the cars exiting. Additionally, the "best of show" awards will be given out during a televised presentation as part of the Ignited event. A proud sponsor of SEMA Ignited, AutoGuide will be on hand to capture all the action.
