The Southern California Minitruck Council held its annual show at Classic Auto Sound in Chino, California, this year and it was another huge success. With the SoCal scene picking up after a few years of decline, the SCMTC is doing all it can to stay strong. This year's event pulled a few more non-council clubs than previous years. The goal is for next year's show to double in size, bring more clubs to the council, and help to bring the council back to its glory days of the mid- to the late-'90s reign. Clubs from all over Southern Cali came out to compete and hang out with friends. Classic Auto Sound also held a sound competition, which was sure to please the bass heads.
