    Default A twist to the competition

    This is my first day reading through this thread but while I was reading I thought of an idea that might work. Rather than picking more trucks with different categories, what about picking 4 or 5 trucks (to prevent repeat contenders) and having various categories to vote on. Best wheels, Best interior, etc... I think this would first off, allow each person in the poll to have a chance at winning something, and second, promote creativity with photos that show interior, engine, exhaust, suspension, wheels etc... maybe even throw some videos in there so we can here the exhaust. I know just thinking about it makes me want to go clean up my engine and repair some chipped paint on my baby lol. Now that's motivation!!!

    Default Another POV?

    Hello guys-

    I am new here and I would like to add my $.02 to this friendly debate.

    There seems to be an underlying preference against the stock or near stock trucks whose owners might feel great pride of ownership as well.

    I doubt that I am alone when I say that I truly LOVE a truck that is stock or near stock, especially one that has several years of age on it. Although it might be in a different catagory, these truck can exibit many feelings of pride based in having some age and still being mechanically sound because it was cared for so well and loved over those years.

    My 99 Suburban is such a truck. It is mildly modded, but mostly it has been cared for and maintained with an appreciation for longevity and a love for the way CHEVROLET makes it! Its really a base model with vinyl/vinyl and hand crank, etc., but it gets comments everywhere I go even though 99 was one of the most popular in a sea of Suburbans out there.

    Also my 88 suburban. This is a truly unique and rare vehicle. It's rather ugly on the outside, but it was originally ordered from the factory with 1 ton drive train and suspension and a 8000lb winch. It's a freakin MONSTER just as Chevy made it. I found it with only 80K miles on it and immediaely spent a few $$$ to get it in mechanicly excellent condition again. As for its 4WD capabilities... call me if you get stuck! It's like a tractor! I could probably plow a field with it! The interior is stock and minty except for the headliner which is next on the list.

    Enough rambling .... just want to note that stockers have their fans too.

    A suggestion might be that the modrator could anounce in advance what type or catagory of truck each months contest would be focusing on.... 4X4, street sweeper, kid haulers, crew cabs, etc....

    That's true, but January's ROTM was made up of mostly stock vehicles and they do try to mix them up and match the vehicles for the month.

    '01 Chevrolet S10
    -custom air intake
    -painted dash
    -footwell lights
    -Strange Performance stickers
    -exhaust coming soon
    -Xplod Head Unit with iPod connectivity
    -12" Sony Xplod woofer
    -Majestic 400 watt amp, bridged

    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving is not for you.

    I wouldn't really say that. However, ROTM should be something at least mildly different from the millons driving around.

    What makes them different?

    How could you vote if there were two of the same stock trucks?


    I could go on and on but there is no need. The rules are the rules until we are notified of any changes. I think that it really should be a nomination process instead of the "pick me, pick me!!!!" currently being used.

    Hey, that's my truck!! And he mentioned my name, too!

    I agree with Leo on this point. My truck is King S*** around these parts, based on the above criteria. When I enter the GMTC neighborhood, it's just another plain jane work truck, and I'm OK with that. I'll have other toys to put in for ROTM, as time and money will allow.

    I don't know the happy median for this contest; but I'll be back, every time, voting for the truck that strikes my fancy at that time.

    Good luck to all, don't get mad if I steal ideas from your ride.
