Just a bit of trivia for you truck builders!

If you are planning on building a truck for the F100 Supernationals here is a little bit of useless information you might need to succeed in building that trophy winner. It has to be a 56, a 56 has won 9 out of the last 10 shows, your budget has to be at least 120K or more. If you happen to put in lots of bickies in a stock truck will not get a look in for top honours. Anyway I hope this piece of useless information hasn't detered any of you from building a show truck. Just remember it's not how much dollars you invest in your truck, it's how much fun you have building the thing and driving it regular. Cheers All

A slantcab has won the last two years. Both 53's. You may still spend 120K but at least there is hope for spending it on a slantcab.

Ed, "Big bickies" is a expression used here when referring to something that costs alot or very expensive. We would say, "Geez that truck is big bickies". there is a bit of Aussie lingo for ya!
Cheers

Aussie, you said it with the fun you have building it yourself and driving it, most show truck owners never turned a bolt and probably has some to load it in the trailer for them. If you can't drive it then why have it, Garry

CharlieLed you 100% corrected there. You can say big "Bickies" or big "Bucks". Cheers
