In the land of perpetual sunshine, there are car and truck shows every weekend of the year and no one garages his ride for the winter. With so many choices, it makes it difficult for one show to stand out from the rest, but Slamfest in Tampa, Florida, has become a favorite for truckers in the Southeast. Now in its 16th year, the largest club-sponsored event in the state still attracts thousands of spectators and hundreds of vehicles. Burnouts, bikinis, and nearly a thousand vehicles-this event had it all.
