Where else are you going to find an outdoor truck show in the middle of winter? The east coast and Midwest are battling some of the coldest, cruelest conditions seen in a long time. Up north maybe? Not a chance. The west is where it’s at, and Arizona, in particular, offers just the right setting to start each show season off with a proper blast off.

Daytime desert temps are perfect for catching some sun and previewing some of the latest creations in the show truck circuit. Bring The Noize, a long-running event put together by the Art Of Noize crew in Arizona has claimed its place as the first full custom gathering of the year. Cars, trucks, and visitors from all over the southwest region and states beyond migrated to the Victory Lane Sports Park in Glendale for what has to be one of the most laid back Sunday shows around.

Aside from dedicating a day to the pastime of drooling over automotive cool, Art of Noize celebrated the life of a fallen club member Anthony Choy at the show. Anthony had recently passed away from injuries suffered from an auto accident while driving his lifted truck almost 20 years ago. Our heartfelt condolences go out to his family and friends inside and out of the custom enthusiast community.
