Arrow TOTM - August 2010

Since the weather has most of us feeling,

Red Hot!!

that will be the theme for this month’s contest.

Let’s look at the rules or criteria the vehicles must meet in order to be nominated
  • The vehicle nominated needs to belong to a board member during the time of the contest.
  • This month's contest is open to all Trucks, Blazers, Suburbans, Tahoes, Yukons, and Jimmys where the primary exterior color is RED. Flames, striping, or some details maybe added, but the primary color must be RED.
  • It must be together and able to move on its own power. It does not have to be licensed for street use.
  • If a truck has been a TOTM winner during 2009 or 2010, it is ineligible for the current contest. If the truck was nominated but was 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 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 July 24. 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 July 25 and will run until the morning of August 1. The official announcement of the winner will be on the afternoon of August 1. The announcement of this month’s TOTM winner will be posted through the General Discussion Board area.

OK, up with the temps....lets see the red hot!!

Re: TOTM - August 2010

I'd like to nominate member hot trux SUPER detailed 1985 red stepside.

His truck has been completely rebuilt from the ground up.
99% of the work was done by Jeff himself.
(with the exception of the seat and door panels)
All paint,... exterior, interior, frame, and all small parts,... all drivetrain work, exhaust, bed wood. Everything.
All done at home in a small garage, and assembled in a single car garage.

Attention to detail is amazing.

Re: TOTM - August 2010

I'm nominting Mylow53. He's one of the coolest guy's here, and well his work speaks for itself. He has his family involved in the build. I'm sure his boy's will never forget the times they've spent wrenching with their dad. Please check out his build thread.

Hope you don't mind Greg. If anyone deserves this it's you man.
Here's the skinny on the truck.
1953 chevy 1/2 ton 5 window, chevy 350 330 horse 700r tranz, lowering spindels mustang 2 frount. ford 9", airbags on 4 corners . purchased in 1983 for $325 while in high school

Re: TOTM - August 2010

Gonna nominate JWall's '98 Fleetside. He's built some nice rides. I know there are others on the 88-98 forum, but this one stood out in my mind....and, it's red.
