Thumbs up C 10 Nationals Maggie Valley NC

Who's going? Our local club has several going. It's a nice show and they have a bunch of classic vendors there in the past.

Get out and drive the truck this summer and have some fun!
It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.

Yes awards are handed out on Saturday. A bunch are going up today. I'm taking the 2 trucks up Saturday morning early.

Several because there are so many C-10 not one show can handle them all. Plus some are to far to drive to.

Good luck all

I got the ramp & 71 truck ready for the ride to Maggie Valley tomorrow, Wish me luck... the ramp has never gone on this far of a trip.
Got all the bikes loaded. I picked up another chopper Tuesday and a fat tire Mongoose today with 7 speed which later on this year will swap over to my chopper!

Re: C 10 Nationals Maggie Valley NC

I'd like to see the car and truck shows go back to the way they used to be , 1 winner with a check for $500.00 or a $1,000.00 , They could probably still do it that way if they stopped giving away participation trophies .

Re: C 10 Nationals Maggie Valley NC

I wanted to make it out this year, but I had a new blessing come about a week ago. And as far as trophies go, Iíll never be able to spend enough on my truck to compete with a lot of guys. Trophies donít mean squat. Itís about comradare and spending time with family.

Talking Re: C 10 Nationals Maggie Valley NC

My daughter and grandson drove the 71 up and I drove the ramp truck. They both did fine but the ramp lost 4 quarts of oil on the trip. The bottom of the motor is covered in oil. I think the oil pan gasket is shot!
The 71 brought another trophy home too! 4 years running! There was over 140 trucks there today.
I registered the ramp and I put my daughter's name on the 71. She was tickeled to have her name called out.

They find a word to use to make it sound bigger and now that's the trend. The fact is, if a show is too far to drive to it is regional, not national. But I guess that doesn't pack enough punch, or maybe too honest for a promoter? When are the C30, C20, K5, K10, and K20 Nationals? Is there a show for GMCs, like a C1500 National anywhere?

All said and done after maybe a better name, I bet the show was pretty good like the old show at Maggie Valley, even with another Nationals across Tennessee the same weekend (in the same region)

Chuckles, 72Bluz RIP, invited me to join him at Maggie Valley one year and I really regret not making that show.
I think I'd really like to make the Nashville one some time.

Talking Re: C 10 Nationals Maggie Valley NC

The show was over 150 C-10's are at least that's what I herd anyway!

National has nothing to do with driving time. I don't think the promoter cares how far you have to drive. I think it's jut a name that draws people.
I'm glad there are several shows this way I don't have to drive for a whole day to get there and spend a fortune to go.
The swap meet was good also.
Ole red done good but the ramp had more conversation's with folks but the judges didn't like it I guess, which it's not really a C 10!
