Lone Star Throwdown, or LST as it’s referred to, is one of the premier custom truck shows in the country. It also happens to be one of a few of those that happen in the state of Texas. This show draws folks from all over the country, along with Canada and Mexico during Non Covid times. With just a few days until the show, Charles Wickam and I decided we were going to head down and take a look, and boy are we glad we did. There were insane numbers of trucks and some really cool stuff we loved. We didn’t shoot every single truck there, but we got hundreds and hundreds of them for you to check out, that’s for sure.
After getting up at 4am, and leaving the house with my main dude Otis The Shop Dog at 4:45, we hit the road to drop Otis off for a play date with Mom and Dad and their dog Baxter in Waxahachie. The roads were wet, the fog was nuts, and I headed to pickup Wickam after leaving mom and dad’s around 6:15. More fog, some rain, and with a Wickam on board we headed toward Conroe for the show around 8:15. A couple hours later we were eating lunch at Whataburger, duh, and then a primo parking spot had us walking through the show in just a few minutes.
I snapped photo after photo, Wickam and I dreamed and schemed and planned fantasy trucks in our heads, we talked to racers and truck guys and gals we knew at the show, and when our feet felt like they were going to fall off we jumped back in the truck and headed for home. 5 hours or so later I pulled in the driveway with Otis and started organizing photos. It was fun, but man I’m tired.
So, here is your first gallery. I’ll have more coming over the next few days, but figured I’d make this first one nothing but OBS, 1988-1998 GM trucks since everyone loves them so much and they were out in force at LST 2021.
Enjoy, let us know which ones are your favorites, and check back for more tomorrow!
