For the past years we’ve become regulars at the Brothers Truck Show—and all we can say is that we’re proud to have witnessed its substantial growth. With over 500 pre-1987 Chevy trucks in attendance, it made their 18th anniversary show the biggest one to date.
So, how did it get started? Well, it all began when brothers Jim and Steve Flanders—along with their crew—decided to start a get-together, and in turn they created what can easily be called the largest classic Chevy truck show in the world.
With plenty of shade, the grounds at the Canyon RV Park in Anaheim was packed with laid and lifted Chevys, as well as top pickings of GMC truck and Suburbans. There were plenty of vendors on hand, selling everything from apparel to performance parts, and no shindig would be complete without plenty of food and cold drinks.
By day’s end, spectators and competitors gathered as Brothers Trucks handed out an assortment of trophies, including Best of Show, Ugliest Truck, Brothers Choice, and Club Participants. The truck that wins “Best of Show” also lands a feature in the Brothers Catalog, and that alone is a pretty big accomplishment since they print more catalogs than some smaller publications.
To sum it all up, this show is the biggest and best pre-1987 Chevy truck show there is. They feature just about every style of truck but there’s definitely more room for lowrider-style trucks, so be sure to sign up and represent.
