The Gulf Coast was packed with custom cars, unreal audio systems and good times this weekend.
Hank Davis was there and shows us what Scrapin’ The Coast 2016 was all about.
They scrap, they roll, and they bounce. People from all over the country are making their way to Biloxi to attend Scrapin’ the Coast 2016, for chance to see some of the coolest custom rides on the planet.
Michael Cotten tells News 25, “The stuff that I have on a screen at home on Instagram, or Facebook and everything, it’s actually like I get to see it in real life. It’s kinda like bringing fantasy to reality.”
This is the 14th year the show has taken place, and it’s become a huge summer attraction for the coast community.
We caught up with Bennie Mann, who’s watch the event grow since day one.
“I’ve seen a lot of growth, a lot of different vehicles. Cars, Motorcycles, trucks going from a one day event to a three day weekend.”
Mann says this year’s is the biggest Scrapin’ event yet, and he wouldn’t be surprised if it evolves into a week-long affair. With so much to see and do, it just might have to.
I had a chance to test out some serious audio equipment, Rockford Audio’s mini sound lab, and by them end of the demo I couldn’t hear a thing.
Matt Smith came all the way from Ocala, Florida to show off his mini truck, a custom ’83 Chevy S10 that he’s had since he was 16 years old. He first came to Scrapin’ the Coast for a road trip in 2010.
“It’s a big show, good trucks and I finally finished mine so I thought I’d bring it. It’s up there, one of the top shows around, in the southeast,” Smith says.
At the end of the day I caught up with the rowdy gent’s car clue from New Orleans and they showed me what it means to be a part of the Scrapin’ family, ending my day with a ride in an antique, airbagged Caddy.
