June 2013 ToTM

Our theme for the June Truck of the Month (TOTM) contest is:


Figure it out yet? Well for those of you who are slow, our theme is for our narrow bed or stepside model trucks.

So here is the criteria for this month’s contest.
  • Open to all years of stepside.
  • 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 2012 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, and the Make/Model/Year of vehicle.

Nominees will run through May 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. 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 May 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 June 1 and the official announcement of the winner will be on the afternoon of June 1. The announcement of the TOTM winner will be posted through the General Discussion Board area.

Re: June 2013 ToTM

I nominate ChuckDriver's '57 big window short stepside.

It's not "done" per se, but its got a great stance, cool rims, a killer engine upgrade and of course a custom Impala dash install. AND all the work he's done on it is first class.

Re: June 2013 ToTM

I'll nominate my 87' 4x4 stepside. Not quite done, but it's running and driving so I guess it meets the rules.

I'll nominate my truck. I call him Arthur, named after my long departed Grandpa. He had a 57 with the same colour combination (not a 95 LT1 though!).
