We’re brought N0-CLUB down south again to Biloxi, Mississippi on the Gulf of Mexico! This time we checked out one of the WILDEST shows in the States; SCRAPIN’ THE COAST.
“Scrapin the Coast in Biloxi, MS is the south's largest and premier car, truck and bike show. Started in 2002, it has grown by leaps and bounds every year. Scrapin’ the Coast is one show you do not want to miss out on.” - www.scrapinthecoast.com
Our trip began at 7am the Wednesday leading up to the show weekend.
We had Jordan and Allee (@jwbiggs154 and @Jeepvixen) hauling Darryl’s truck down (@Killed4x4), Dusty (@Cammedandslammed) hauling Travis’s truck (@travis.birch), Ethan and Rachel (@Reiche_9 and @Rachel_henryy) diving his own truck and Greg (@brows_exhaust) along for the ride.
It was smooth sailing through the American Border and then we immediately encountered some torrential rain, and as you would expect, super tight road construction as soon as we entered Ohio. After that it was smooth sailing down through Kentucky and into Tennessee. We were about an hour out from Nashville when the rental trailer Dusty was hauling blew a bearing and started smoking- this was at about midnight.
Some quick mcguivering and some ratchet straps got us the rest of the way to Nashville, where we made the wrong decision on where to sleep for the night. We checked in at a Motel 6 but is was basically like checking in a R rated movie… and the rooms were gross, so we immediately got a refund and tried to find another hotel. Who knew finding a hotel on a Wednesday night could be so difficult, or that Nashville was such a busy area for hotel rooms…. LOL. We finally got a decent hotel and some sleep around 2am.
The next morning we fixed the rental trailer and were off to Gulfport, Mississippi. At this point we were about 8 hours out. As soon as you hit Mississippi, it’s like getting smacked in the face with humidity.
Show vehicles start to arrive around Thursday afternoon, be things start to get into full swing on Friday. There is a main stripe down on the beach that everyone cruises down, which leads to the coliseum, where the official show is held. We headed down to the the show grounds Friday Morning to set up the N0-CLUB space and chat with Greg Miller - the owner of the Scrapin’ The Coast show, as well as several other shows.
Saturday and Sunday’s quality of show was off the charts. Lowered car and trucks were of course present, as well as lifted trucks, side by sides, and more! We met up with a couple guys who came up from Houston, Texas to hangout for the weekend and get banners on their trucks. We had a blast with everyone, and even took home some hardware. Two guys from Texas with N0-Club banners took home 1st in mild dodge as well as 1st in wild dodge categories; and one of our own Darryl Timbers took home 1st in Radical 4x4 Category. N0-Club overall took home a trophy for the furthest travelled as well, which you can check out at our vendor booths at future shows.
Some of the paint jobs on the vehicles on display are worth more than the vehicle itself, they are insanely detailed and intricate. One guy who’s truck had an airbrushed clown design said the truck had over 20 coats of clear coat on it. Of course American Force and Fury Tires were present with all their sponsored trucks out on display, and all the other vendors had some great stuff to check out!
The show also had hydraulic demonstrations and a burnout competition; which Travis took home second place and jack and set of jack stands - which came in handy since he broke his truck in the process.The show also hosted an after hours event at the drag strip and had a night cruise happening all night on the beach strip. Everyone who came to say hello and see what N0-Club was all about was friendly and welcoming, some people even bought banner just because they liked what we stand for.
Once Monday rolled around it was time for us to head home, so we packed everything up and pointed the trucks North at 3am and made the long drive home encountering only one more torrential downpour in Kentucky before making it home to Canada.
Overall, if you are looking for quality show that is extremely well done and organized Scrapin’ The Coast is definitely one to put on your list. Whether you drive your truck down or fly in, there is something for everyone at this show, and the people are beyond welcoming. We made some new friends this year that might even make the trip north to come to the 2020 Season Opener and its safe to say that we will be heading back Mississippi next year!
