February 2019 ToTM

Since the name is being reborn, our first contest theme for the new year will be based around those vehicles that started the craze for GM. So, our theme for the February 2019 Truck of the Month (ToTM)


If you need help, our theme is the inferno that set the GM utility vehicle market ablaze. In case you need help, our theme is the 2-door based SUVs, that started with the Blazer

Here are the criteria for this month’s contest.
  • Open to all years and models of Blazers, Jimmys. 2dr-Tahoes, and 2dr-Yukons.
  • The nominee must be a board member and the current owner of the truck.
  • 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 2018 TOTM winner then you are ineligible. If the truck was nominated but not selected as a TOTM winner then it 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 Make/Model/Year of vehicle.

Nominations will run through January 24. The first 15 nominees that meet the criteria will participate in the contest 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 Make/Model/Year of vehicle. I will PM the nominees to get any additional data or pictures if they have not already been provided. 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 by January 25 in this board area and an announcement will be posted on the Discussion Boards to notify all that voting has begun. The Poll will run thru the morning of February 1 and the official announcement of the winner will be on the evening of February 1. The announcement of the TOTM winner will be posted through the General Discussion Board area.
