Alpine Car Audio was the host of this year's Relaxin' in SoCal truck show. With it's spacious parking lot and lengthy street front, the Torrance headquarters seemed like the perfect place for a block-party-style show. The goal of the show is in the name-relax. A Sunday in the middle of June was the perfect time to have a truck show where everyone could just walk around and mingle like a family. With the afternoon sun gleaming off the custom paint of the trucks, the participants and attendees definitely got their fill of beautiful rides.

With a showing of more than 100 cars, trucks, and SUVs, the turnout was just right for everyone to have some fun. Most car shows have a bit of a competitive nature, which is essentially the point. But the Relaxin' in SoCal show always gives the impression that the truck owners, designers, and fabricators are there to mingle and tell stories, more like a family reunion. This year's show was no exception. Even though prizes were given away to many lucky attendees, everyone who attended the show went home a winner. A special thanks to Alpine Car Audio, Kinetik Power Cells, and Pacific Coast Customs for sponsoring this event.
