    I have a brand new 2014 Chevy Silverado Z71 Blue. Any sponsors looking to do a lift, tires and wheels, supercharger, performance parts?
    Any info would be good. Yes I have another vehicle to drive if you want to show it off and take to the shop. I'm really excited about the new truck. Way better then my 08 and 09 cc trucks. So much more room and power. Glad gm has step up but it can be improved to perfection.

    Are you going to go shows? BIG shows? Are you going to get a graphics job on it? How far would you drive for a BIG show using YOUR Gas money and hotel expense? Will it be in Many Ad's and Mag's? How many views will it get? Have you had a show Truck/car before??

    This is what the Big Co's want to know and see before they give things away And these days it's getting harder....:neutral:

    Graphics or paint job is fine with me. Will travel to really big shows. Sema for one. I'm very passionate about car shows. Love meeting people and talking to them. Unfortunately never had a top notch show truck. That's why I'm looking for sponsors to be at that level. I don't mind using my gas to travel to big shows. I wanna share my ideas with the big name manufacturers. Just need to be able to talk to sponsors, talk ideas, and actually get sponsored.

    I want a lot of people to see it at different shows. Would like to get a lot of people involved on the truck with their products.

    Well have you done Big shows before? Whats your back ground? My past 3 trucks have been in a few Ad's and Web sites. But I never got it to SEMA although it was in the LTAA/SEMA booth At the Carlisle All truck Nat's in Pa 3 years ago. I have been involved with the Aftermarket for over 20 years and have worked very close with them. My past Avalanche was one of the First sold in The US so everyone jumped on to be a part of it. florida truck pics 038.jpg Disney 029.jpg My newer one has been in a few less but still used ets_avalanche.jpg 086modifiedresized.jpg girls....jpg DSCF2582.jpg As you can see it has changed many times in a few years.

    If you can find someone to get you in There is a very good show for you to go in Tx in Feb http://www.keystonebigshow.com/midwest-show.html not open to the public

    I haven't been in big shows. Been working on cars since 2002. Been Doing shows since 05. I know what people want to see in cars and trucks. I'm trying to answer your questions. I'm willing to do my best.

    They want to know How many Views your truck will get?? THEY want Lots of coverage in Mags and at Large shows. Some Sponsors will make you sign a paper saying if they don't get the Views and Coverage they want OR what you tell them you will be doing then they have the Legal right to charge you FULL RETAIL price of the product they gave you..

    Just remember it's not what it used to be Unless your truck WILL be at and IN the SEMA show they will not give you anything. Times are Tuff and Budget's or Lower. If they sponsor a Nascar or any race team that is about 75% + of the Budget..

    I think all of us would like a sponsor of some sort. If a company offered to hook me up with a bunch of products I would definitely do whatever they asked my to (as far as going to shows). But, as @Enkeiavalanche indicated, these companies are not recruiting people. They let people come to them.

    Thank you y'all very much. I have the drive to do it. I just gotta invest in my truck and get my portfolio together.
    My main goal is SEMA show. Ready for a good car show to get into.
