Presented by Abbotsford Chrysler’s TAG Customs, show runs June 3-5 2016 at Abbotsford’s TRADEX
ABBOTSFORD B.C.: Among the many legendary attractions to see at the inaugural Rigs and Rides Show coming to the TRADEX in Abbotsford is Highway Through Hell star Jamie Davis and his famed Jamie Davis Motor Trucking fleet, presented by Toyota Canada, as well as an Optimus Prime Tribute truck.
“The hit reality television series Highway Through Hell has been ranked as one of Discovery Channel’s top-rated shows and has a reported average viewership of 723,000,” says Show Director Summer Nicholl. “Jamie needs no introduction here locally or in international circles. Anyone who has ever been stuck on the side of a mountainous highway in B.C. in bad weather would love the opportunity to meet and share stories with Jamie and they will have an opportunity to do just that.”
On June 3, from 4 pm to 7 pm, and June 4 from noon to 5 pm, Jamie will be at the show greeting fans and talking about what heavy equipment operation is like in treacherous terrain.
Featuring dozens of interactive displays showcasing the ultimate in customization options for ANYTHING on wheels, the show is a family-friendly event and one-stop automotive aftermarket shopping experience no one should miss.
Rigs and Rides Show Special Features:
Optimus Prime Tribute to wow Transformer fans
The 2016 “Pete 289” will have auto enthusiasts and kids believing that Optimus Prime truly exists and could transform at any time when they capture a glimpse of the “working class” display brilliantly showcasing what is possible in the automotive customization world. Take a picture as you visit the Chinook and Rags to Riches team that brought this childhood favourite to life.
Rockford Fosgate SoundLab full-throttle demonstration guaranteed to get your motor running
A black and red pirate ship known as The SoundLab’s Pressure Chamber uses a 12 PUNCH subwoofer series P3 15’’ (P3D2-15) driven by three POWER 2,500 Watt Class-bd Constant Power amplifiers (T2500-1bdCP) that produce over 7,500 watts of power. Delivered through four pairs of Rockford Fosgate’s POWER T1 series 6.5” two-way component speakers (T1652-S) and in unison with an LED light show and choreographed media, the Pressure Chamber reportedly delivers an all-out full throttle demonstration that is not for the faint of heart.
One of the most important features of the SoundLab is to have a complete mobile Lab on board. The Lab allows the technician to install a complete Rockford Fosgate sound system into a car in a matter of minutes, giving a live demonstration of a POWER, PUNCH or PRIME system. The Lab gives customers a first-hand experience with RF in their own vehicle.
The Gemstone Nitrous Lounge
More than just a beer garden, the Gemstone Nitrous Lounge is a destination within the event. Gemstone Masonry, famously known for custom-building outdoor entertainment oasis, is creating the social and entertainment hub of the show. Brought to you by Gemstone Masonry and Red Truck Beer Company, the Nitrous Lounge will offer cold refreshments, live music, and much more.
What no show should be without and presented by Opal Spa and Laser, the Ladies Lane is a comfort feature offering express ‘pit stop’ spa services for show guests.
360 Fabrication to present the Grand Prize Package
Show attendees will be able to enter for a Grand Prize Custom Stereo Package, presented by Canada’s top hot rod and custom automotive shop, 360 Fabrication, valued at more than $3,000.
