Arrow September 2021 ToTM

The theme for September’s Truck of the Month contest is.

Low Resistance!

Another play on words. From my IT/electronic days a low resistance connect is often referred to as a SHORT. So that is what we will look at this month, our short wheel-based trucks. To see what it takes to be a nominee this month, the truck will need to meet these criteria:
  • Open to all years and models of short wheel-based stepside and fleetside Trucks.
  • 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.
  • If a truck was selected as a 2020 or 2021 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 with at least one full view of the vehicle. In addition, we will need the owner’s board name and the Make/Model/Year of vehicle.

Nominations will run through August 25. 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 August 26 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 September 1 and the official announcement of the winner will be on the evening of September 1. The announcement of the TOTM winner will be posted through the General Discussion Board area.
