It was a hot and humid weekend, but that didn't deter more than 2,500 enthusiasts from showing their rides and almost 20,000 spectators from attending this year's rendition of the Royal Purple sponsored Import and Truck Bash.
The show field was packed full of every kind of lowered, lifted, modified, mini, fullsize, and late-model truck, one of the best things about ITB, along with it's extensive collection of vendors. As the crowds walked through the show, it was sometimes hard to gauge the amount of people walking up and down the rows. But that all changed when the bikini contest was announced. As the hot bikini babes hit the stage, a sea of raging testosterone surrounded the platform. The girls, loving every minute of it, danced, jiggled, and exposed their tender-loving hearts to the cheers of the fans. By the time it was all over, Miss ITB had a fat wad of greenbacks. ITB brought out cool people and awesome vehicles, and was an amazing experience we won't soon forget.
