was my first time attending the Slammin n Jammin car
and truck show and it definitely won't be my last year! The
presented by Falken Tire and featured many vendors selling all kinds of
accessories! It was a 7 hour drive for me from Concord, NC to
where the show was held. I trailer’d my Impala through the
Parkway Mountains... Not fun! Luckily my Chevy
2500HD was up to the
After I pulled into the show on Saturday, I realized I was in for a
surprise! The line to get in took almost an hour to drive
