Every May, Hal Johnson, the "Godfather" of Godfather Customs, and his crew throw a sweet bash at the International Horse Park in good old Conyers, Georgia. Over the past couple of years, we've seen this show blossom. There are always new and exciting things going on, and as a good show should, it just keeps getting bigger and better. Mini-trucks, monster trucks, slammed and lifted golf carts, great oldies, and brand newbies were featured. All kinds of people came to show off their pride and joy and compete for one of the many trophies that Godfather handed out this year. As usual, Godfather gave out Top 100 Truck and Top 100 Car awards and special awards, including Best Truck, Best Muscle Car, Best Paint, and Best Interior.
There's always a ton of things to do at the Godfather show, but every year, the staff brings in something new and different for you to experience. This year's specialty was helicopter rides. When not in line waiting for the chopper, you could browse the vendor row that included Drop Em Wear?, APC, South Honda, Auto Forms, and, of course, the Godfather booth. With the number of high-quality rides that turned out to compete, it was easy to spend all day drooling over them. As always, the food was excellent and we stuffed our faces. Then it was back to check out what else was in store.
If the first-class vehicles, the chopper rides, the vendors, or the food weren't enough to keep you busy, then you could also check out the burnouts, hopping, and of course, our favorite, the dragging. For the contests, or just for fun, these exploits took place all-day long. After the day's activities came our second favorite part: hanging out and enjoying the company of all our fellow mini-truckers. There was plenty of shade to prop a lounge chair in and chill out while hiding from the hot Georgia sun.
The folks at Godfather Customs sure know how to party. Every year, we check out the rides and have a blast. There is so much to do that we almost never have time to get to it all, but we always have a good time and we're sure you will, too. Mark you calendar and make plans to be there next year.
