Look out for more on this truck in an upcoming issue.
We went deep into the sticks of Louisiana for this puppy, and it was worth it. Sure, there were a few problems with the local law, but all in all it was a success. You couldn't really beat the show grounds, and with a casino on hand, fun could be had all night long. I even won a few bucks, which was enough to buy my friends a round of drinks in preparation for the big show at hand. The as-could-be-expected show was great in size, considering it was held at a new location. There were still plenty of new and old faces. We can't wait to go back in '08, and next time we're going to be ready for the poker tournament, as well.

Message From Brandon:
"This being the 4th Annual Gator Drag, I have worked all year trying to give you the show everybody wants. I know the cops were being hard asses this year, and I am doing everything in my power to prevent that next year. Let's all come together as fellow minitruckers and help to keep the shows we have left alive and support each other. We are all here for the same reason. Thanks for all of the support and see you all at Gator Drag '08."
DIB brought out their now infamous Mazda on 22s, it was a big hit at the show.
SoCal shop Deranged Rides had some eye candy walking the show.
We never caught up with the owner of this truck. How clean it is caught our eye, but also
Three guys cleaning one truck, now that's team work.
It's old-skool, but with a new-skool flavor. You gotta love it.
This killer Isuzu could be found in the indoor part of the show and it really wowed the cr
