March 2011 TOTM

To go along with the March holiday, our theme for the TOTM contest is.

Like a 4-Leaf Clover

Yep, we are going green…To be a nominee this month, the truck will need to meet these criteria
  • Open to all years and models of Trucks, Blazers, Suburbans, Tahoes, Yukons, and Jimmys.
  • The nominee must be a board member and the current owner of the truck.
  • It must be road worthy and currently legal to be on the road.
  • The truck’s primary color is GREEN!
  • If a truck was selected as a 20 10 or 2011 TOTM winner then you are ineligible. If you were nominated but were not selected as a TOTM winner then you may be nominated and compete in this month's category.

To Nominate:

You or someone else may nominate the vehicle. The nominee must be a board member and the current owner of the truck. Once you decide on who you wish to nominate, just add your nomination to this thread. We will need two pictures minimum (at least one full view of the vehicle) with/for the nomination as well as the owner’s board name, the year of the truck, and any other specs of the truck (interior details, engine/drive train specs) that you may want to provide.

Nominees will run through February 21. The first 15 nominees that meet the criteria will participate in the contest. I will PM the nominees to get any additional data or pictures if they have not already been provided. I normally use 1 picture showing a good front-side view and 1 with a rear view of the vehicle in the voting threads. If the owner has a preferred picture they want used in the contest, please let me know in a PM. You can PM me for an e-mail address in case anyone has problems resizing the pictures for the board. A Poll Thread will be set up in this board area and an announcement will be posted on the Discussion Boards to notify all of the voting. The Poll will start to run on February 22 and will run until the morning of March 1. The official announcement of the winner will be on the afternoon of March 1. The announcement of this month’s TOTM winner will be posted through the General Discussion Board area.

Re: March 2011 TOTM

I would like to nominate Bigsnookmaster and his 1968 C10 stepper. it's gorgeous top to bottom. Lot's of detail and well thought out fab work, like Greg custom made all the accessory brackets so the components are mounted down low and the belts are all 3 the exact same size. He made shims of different thickness for the bolts in the bed so all the screw heads could be indexed to the same position. That's really alot of detail and the whole truck is just as well thought out. I think It's just beautiful.....

Mike,

Your truck is awesome.... and with the Callahan logo it definately fits. I gotta ask though, is my monitor shot or is your truck blue?

Your monitor is shot, it is a turquoise green PPG #511

In the sun it has a tendancy to pick up some blue tones but you can see from the glove that is the true color the way it looks in real life out of the sun.
