Indiana is known for many traditions. They have a huge basketball following, the Indy 500 races, and Peyton Manning's long touchdown throws, to name a few things. However, on the weekend of August 18th through the 20th, Indiana becomes known for much, much more... one of the biggest and baddest minitruckin' shows in the country! For those who made the trip to ITB, you know what we're talking about. For those of you who couldn't make it, this is one event to mark down on your calendars for next summer.

As the show weekend got closer this year, the weather became questionable with some scattered showers, but eventually turned into perfect car-show weather. When the gates opened, vendors such as Suicidedoors.com, Garage Tease, and many others welcomed hundreds of the finest minitrucks across the country. Eventually, the fairgrounds became swamped with a variety of different styled minitrucks, leaving everyone, no matter what kind of minitruckin' taste they might have, satisfied and feeling more involved with the lifestyle we all shared. The nightlife was adventurous as always, as minitruckers scraped the pavements and tore up many Indiana-style road reflectors.

Sunday rolled around with high anticipation, and all of the lovely ladies got to capture the spotlight while they strutted their stuff across the stage in a variety of the hottest bikinis we have seen! Once the award's ceremony concluded another successful event, everyone began packing up and headed toward the exits-knowing that this show will be another great experience for the 2007 show season. We look forward to many, many more years of sharing the experience of The Bash with all of you lifestylers. See you next year.
