TOTM May 2010

We know how attached we can get to our rides and sometimes there is:

Love in a Fleeting Moment!

To be an eligible for this month’s contest
  • Open to all year fleetside trucks.
  • The must be together and able to move on its own power.
  • The truck has to be licensed for street use.
  • If a truck was selected as a 2008/2009 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 April 23. If additional information is needed, I will PM the first 15 nominees to get any additional data or pictures if they have not already been provided. 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 April 24and will run until the morning of May 1st. The official announcement of the winner will be on the afternoon of May 1st. The announcement of this month’s TOTM winner will be posted through the General Discussion Board area.

So let’s see those lovely fleetsides.
