For over two decades now, Brothers Trucks has graciously hosted classic GM pickup enthusiasts at their annual (except 2020 due to Covid-19) summertime show and shine event in Sunny Southern California. 2021’s installment (held at Oak Canyon Park in Silverado, CA on August 1st) was filled with both Chevy and GMC trucks ranging from ’47-’87 year models—that’s 40 years worth of diversity packed into a single show, and the exact crowd that Brothers caters to. But the selection of drool-worthy trucks in attendance goes much deeper than just various year models with the amount of different style builds that gravitates to the event. With 650+ registered trucks piled into the park, there was no shortage of inspiration out there.
This show, being that is GM truck exclusive, is unique in another sense, as it has successfully built an atmosphere that champions camaraderie among truck builders and a respect of all takes on GM’s timeless pickup models. From high-dollar street rod inspired C-10s, to in-progress projects still in “barn find” condition, and trucks geared more toward function and utility—no truck bearing GM badges was turned away, and the show was all the better for it.
For the team at Brothers Trucks, the show represents a way for them to round up other Chevy fans near their home base in Southern California to see for themselves the creative directions fellow GM enthusiasts take their projects. The hundreds of trucks on display all showed different takes on what is defined as custom, which is really what this whole thing is about anyway.
No matter what kind of trucks you are into, this show has something for all to admire, but it really has become a holy place for Bow Tie purists. Being there is believing, so don’t miss the next opportunity to make a day of it.
