The company was a huge success, making all era's of American Trucks look great and stylish.
The trucks were so stylish that they needed a truck show to showcase these rad ass trucks and all the "Stylin Concepts" parts. So Gary started the Sport Truck Nationals, during the 4th of July weekend every year.
