Well, it’s that time of year again. Time to slide that cover off the old truck, fill ’er up with a fresh tank of gas, gather up the missus and hit the highway for another season of cruising and perusing. We’re already full stop into the show season by the time this issue hits the newsstands but even as I write this, there have already been a handful of cruises and get-togethers down in the Southwestern United States.

The Pickups Limited of Orange County hosted Jeff’s Fun Run back in January and Classic Performance Parts is planning a cruise of their own in March; check out www.customclassictrucks.com for coverage and for more info on upcoming events check out Pickups Limited’s site at www.pickupslimited.com

That’s just a smidgen of events that happened this spring in the Southern California area, I’m sure there are hundreds more going on throughout the rest of the country. In fact, we’d like to hear about them! If you’ve got any info on upcoming events in your area, shoot us a note and a link and we’ll put ’em up on our website. If you’re really savvy, shoot some photos from the event and put ’em on a disc and send it to our office, we may just print ’em and make you famous!

And speaking of spring, most of you are probably just thawing out from a long, cold winter along with that project you’ve squirreled yourself away with to pass the frigid winter months; we wanna see ’em. Gather up some hi-resolution digital pics on a CD or send the original prints to our office and we’ll file them away in our Readers’ Trucks folder for a future issue. We love to see in-progress projects so don’t be shy if your truck is still in the early stages, we all gotta start somewhere!

As for our plans here at CCT for the summer months, we’ve got a couple of exciting engine projects that I think will spark some interest among you loyal readers as well as a couple of truck projects that will be gathering some serious steam in the coming months. I’m not going to divulge too many details as I’d like to keep you in suspense for just a short while, but we’re pretty excited about what’s to come.

We love to hear from our readers, good, bad, or indifferent, so if there’s anything you’d like to see us cover or anything you’d like to see more or less of, shoot us a note; we’ve always got a couple of extra minutes to spare for y’all!
