Despite popular belief that SoCal has it all, the truck scene in Central California is definitely where it's at. Even though there is no major metropolis between Los Angeles and San Francisco, there happens to be a plethora of trucks in the central region. We think that farmers of this agriculturally rich area have genetically altered seeds so much that they have found a way to grow custom trucks. Though that may not be entirely true, custom trucks are definitely sprouting up everywhere in this valley and it seemed like the perfect place for the latest stop on the Havoc tour.
You can't go wrong with a flame job from Kool Hand Luke.
The only thing that could have held this show back would have been a boring venue. When shows are set on flat parking lots, it makes for a very troublesome time of walking up and down every aisle. Well, this show did not have that problem because it was held at the Fresno Big Fairgrounds. This place was very interesting to walk with its many different aisles filled with trucks and separated by trees and buildings. If that wasn't enough, vehicles that made it to the show early were able to snag indoor spots in the three designated buildings. The only thing that was a hassle to contend with was the hot summer weather, but you can't control Mother Nature. Overall, the show was a success in its debut and it will be back next year, so be prepared.

Fresno Big Fairgrounds, Fresno, California
Total vehicle entrants:
Custom acrylic trophies were made for all winners. The Best of Show trophy and $1,000 went to Vince Lombardi of the Choppin' Block Kustom Fab for his '06 Chevy Silverado. The Best Club Participation trophy and $1,000 went to Freaks of Nature. Top 5 Under Construction picks drew cards and the highest cardholder-Dave Prater with his '82 Blazer/Toyota-won a Lincoln Electric welder.
Before the awards ceremony on Sunday was a bikini contest in which some of Fresno's finest strutted their stuff on stage. The $1,000 in cash prizes brought out a line of gorgeous contestants. We're not exaggerating either because there were definitely some eye-catching ladies at this event. Manning the stage with DJ and MC skills were the crew of MadHouse FX. Also, the show was filled with various vendors selling everything from parts for your ride to apparel. If that didn't float your boat, you could have joined us in getting fresh tattoo work in the lifestyle hall. That's right, you could hit up a show and get ink. It doesn't get any better than that.
