A decade is a long time to be involved in anything whether it's gator wrestling or throwing a huge car and truck show. Greg Miller dabbles in both, but he has gained most of his notoriety from the overwhelming success of Scrapin' The Coast. 2012 marked the 10-year anniversary of the show, and the STC promoters and staff treated the promotion and planning of the show like cruising the strip and parking lot pimpin' was to go out of style or something. Being at Scrapin' felt like being at a three-day party! The lazy beach town of Biloxi, Mississippi, was definitely ours for the taking—for the weekend, anyway.

I burst my STC cherry this year but everything I had heard about the show was spot on. From the amazing beachside location, the turnout of awesome trucks and people, right down to the swamp-ass-inducing temps—my expectations for the show were met, and the weather wasn't really all that bad given the breeze from that Gulf that is literally right across the street.

What I was surprised by though, however, was the high number of fellow STC virgins I met throughout the weekend. Maybe it was the anniversary or the reappearance of 2 Live Crew—who knows? But as much as I wanted to hear “Me So Horny” live in concert (which, I actually missed), I really just wanted to see what all the fuss was about that surrounds the show. After finally being broken in, I can honestly say that I'd recommend this show to anyone out there who has the means to make it out. I know I won't miss it next year, or years to come, if I can help it. Thanks for the awesome time Scrapin' staff, and here's to 10 more years!
