Ghances are good you’ve heard of Brothers Trucks. The company, based in Corona, California, has been supplying 1947-1987 GMC and Chevrolet truck parts since 1995. Since then, it has established a large, consistent customer base, quickly making Brothers an industry leader.
With its enormous following, the Brothers Trucks staff hosts an annual gathering—the Brothers Trucks Show and Shine—that celebrates all things GMC and Chevy trucks. If you like variety, the show hosts everything from mild to wild.
This year’s event took place on July 7, 2019, featuring some of the West coast’s nicest 1947-1987 GMC and Chevrolet trucks. Now staged at a new location, Oak Canyon Park in Silverado, California, the 21st annual show went off without a hitch despite some uncertainty about the new location. This most prestigious event was limited to 650 participants, and that number was reached several weeks prior to the event.

Not only is this event a gathering of enthusiasts, but it’s also a great place to meet vendors and suppliers to gather ideas for your own personal builds. At the end of the day, just 22 total awards were handed out, including “Brothers Choice” and “Best of Show.” Company CEO Steve Flanders hand-picked the Brothers Choice award, describing the vehicle as the one “he would most want to drive.” This award went to Randall Robinson’s custom-built crew cab, a.k.a. “The Ponderosa.” Best of Show went to the 1967 bagged C10 of Gus and Alex Orendain.
The Brothers Trucks Show and Shine event is a fit for the entire family. There’s live music, food trucks, product vendors, and plenty of shade and sunshine for all to enjoy. Be sure to mark your calendar for next year’s event—you won’t want to miss it!
