In July of the 2013 the Canadian Chapter of the SunSet truck club hosted the aptly named “Battle At The Bridge” car and truck show in Lethbridge Alberta.
Headed up by Steve Woodward, and supported by a number of volunteers, the show brought out publications like
Minitruckin’ Magazine, and Performance Auto And Sound, in addition to big name sponsors such as Accuair and AirTEKK.
Like all great Western Canadian events contributing photographer
Mike McConnell was on hand snapping away (his coverage also appears in the March 2014 issue of Mini Truckin’ Magazine), and based on what both he and Gabe of French Canadian Video have told me Battle At The Bridge is exactly the kind of event I would enjoy thoroughly. Great cars, great trucks, great people, and nothing but good times.
Perhaps one of these days I’ll be able to make a trip out to Calgary and check it out myself!
Start things off with this VIP Lexus that is no stranger to Mike’s lens
The Poor Form LS430 is also a familiar car here on SIE
Also showing with Poor Form was this gorgeous Datsun
From the looks of things this car is absolutely spotless throughout
It’s crazy how much forward movement gets introduced in VW suspension when you bag them
Jetta with tons of character
If you can get someone to bring an Esdel to your event you are doing something right!
Whatever is going on with the door of this Monarch interests me
I can’t recall the last time I saw an 88 Accord on the road…
This ’53 Chevy looks to be off to a great start sitting low with what looks to be a Vortec motor between the rails
Hard to beat a great looking Impala Wagon like this
Magnum Tint from Red Deer Alberta laid out
This just might be the only Buick Century I’ve ever seen modified
Looks great too…
Late 90s Rams are also another vehicle I don’t see on the ground all that often
Rounding out the not so often seen on the ground is this F150
Hats off to whoever sprayed this truck! Looks phenomenal in the sun
Perfect for the streets of Cali, or the grass of Alberta
Super nice I.C.E. and management setup in the back of the car too
Not super crazy about the wheels on this personally but I do love seeing turbo hot rods
A little bit of rat styling goes a long way
Not sure why but this is one of my favourite photos of the set…
Another simple yet awesome shot
I would love to see the looks on peoples faces as this car drives by well under their windows
It would probably look a little like this actually…
Hell of a long reach up to this shift knob
One of the better graffiti covered vehicles I’ve seen
I’ve always had a bit of a thing for up-sized Iroc wheels
The Ghost flames are a great addition to this GMC
As I type this caption about this GMC Scottsdale I’m watching the Barrett Jackson auction which takes place in Scottsdale Arizona… weird
Flipped Colorado lights and ‘Cali combo’ completely change the rear of this s10
This bear a striking resemblance to the Air Assisted Ford
The world needs more low duallys
I’m sure you all agree
Simply incredible c10, love the sleds
Awesome switch box choice too
Speaking of things are awesome this trophy is certainly one
Great looking bagged v8 powered Path Finder
Lady driven 78 or so Mazda
This truck was recently in an issue of Minitruckin magazine…
…It also happens to belong to Steve Woodward one of the main organizers of Battle At The Bridge
If you want to see more of this truck check out Mike’s full set of photos here
Going to close things out with this truck which I just love…
…of course I’ve always been a sucker for white walls, purple, and pinstriping
Event organizer Steve Woodward and myself have already been in talks about the 2014 Battle At The Bridge and I am looking forward to sending out some product to help support an awesome show!
