Havoc East 2008
Kentucky - where custom trucks are born!
The first weekend in August was the perfect timing for this year's 2008 Havoc - East. Bowling Green, Kentucky boasted perfect weather and the Beech Bend Raceway was packed to the gills with custom metal.
Being an all-truck show, Havoc '08 didn't dissapoint. The rows of trucks and SUVs were jammed with custom modifications, and the blood, sweat and tears invested in each and every project was evident. Our staffer's favorite truck was the orange, flamed S10 that featured a glass tonneau cover, Nitrous Oxide, and a custom round tube chassis. Be sure to keep an eye out for it in the major mags and remember that you saw it here first, on StylinTrucks.com.
And there weren't just singular trucks at this show, many clubs rolled in, setting up elaborate displays and staking their claim on the valuable show grounds. Freaks of Nature had a great lineup of red trucks in attendance, and Vaperz had at least 17 trucks there. Imagine that caravan driving down the Interstate...
But staring at custom pickup trucks and SUVs wasn't the only thing to do. Sunday's bikini contest offered a hefty prize for the winning female, trucks were roaring down the drag strip (anyone see that 10-sec diesel?!?!), and a group of knuckleheads were jumpstarting the 2008 Darwin awards with sketchy golf kart antics.
All in all, our Stylin' Staffers gave the show three thumbs up. See you next year!
