Everyone knows that the best way to close out a great year, is to do so with friends. Jingle Bass 2014 was no exception. The soggy weather didn’t put too much of a damper on the day’s events, making it the perfect ending to the 2014 show season. Bass wars brought in many competitors to see who could shake the most rain off their cars. Richard Asselin took home the title of loudest of the day, hitting a 161.5.
Richard’s Skar audio filled Tahoe turned the show into a literal “blowout” when he pulled off a 4-way hair trick, because, it IS all about that bass.

Big thanks to Billy Wheeler and his crew at Tint Plus of Sandy Springs, South Carolina for making it possible. Looking forward to a new year full of friends, cars, and a whole lot of fun!

Saturday was probably the perfect day to be at a show in the north Georgia mountains. Home Depot of Clayton, Georgia, provided the lot for the 3rd annual Driving Away Hunger Car Show and Sound-Off hosted by Diana and Shane Allen. The weather was perfect, sun wasn’t baking down all day and we had a bit of a breeze to keep it nice. People of all kinds showed up to help raise money for the Rabun County Christian Food Ministries. Hot Franklin Imports car club had the lot filling up quickly. There were about as many cars in the show portion as there were that showed up for the sound-off bass competition. Games were held off and on throughout the day, all having some twist for Halloween. The baby bottle contest consisted of contestants downing a bottle full of yummy yet sour grapefruit juice.

Josue Avila won this game as well as the Insane Hot Wing eating contest.

Even the little one’s got in on the hot wing action and gave the big boys a run for their money.

There was a candy corn count that was open to anyone who thought they had the right answer to how many corns were in the bottle. Santiago Mendoza guessed the right number and won the bottle of candy corn along with a bucket full of other candy goodies.
The pumpkin toss was pretty self-explanatory. Teams lined up to see who could catch and return the pumpkins the most times, each return resulting in more space between partners.

Then came the Taste of Terror. Contestants were blind folded and were fed crazy things consisting of stuffed green olives, lime juice, pop rocks candy, soy sauce, smoked oysters, warheads sour candy, and unsweetened bitter chocolate. They then had to guess what it was. Alejandro Macias from Custom Tint and Sounds won the contest.
The Sound Show held in the bottom of the lot was run by Tim Brown. Classes were Trunk, Hatch, SUV, Truck, and Modified. They also held a Bass Race that was just for fun and had everyone watching on the edge of their metaphorical seats. The rules of the bass race were simple. Stay higher in decibels than your opponent, but do not go any higher than 129.9 dbs on the meter.

On a whim, we decided to check out the Monster Bass show hosted by Tint Plus from Sandy Springs, SC on Saturday October 13th, 2012. As soon as we got near, and we had show cars passing us, I knew it was going to be a great show. This was their 13th year hosting the event and there was a great turn out of all sorts of vehicles.
Watching the club wars was very entertaining. They did everything from tug-a-war, to an 8-legged race, mystery pie eating, ping pong ball shake, and a pumpkin carving contest.

ImageImage

The spl competition was a crowd pleaser as 24 vied for the awards. Entrants were separated into 6 categories. Group 1 was trunk and car classes: 0-24″, 25-30″, and 30″-up. Group 2 included suv’s, extended cab trucks, and hatchbacks with the same cone area measurement breakdowns.

As the night went on, costume contests took place. The winner of the 0-4 years group was The Fireman, 4 and up kids went to the boogeyman, and the adult group was none other than The Wolf Man.

Image

Awards came last, with best car going to the Chevy Nova.

Image

Awards were also presented to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in each class including minitruck, import, classic, and domestic.
Best of’s included best bike, lowest and tallest truck,

Image

best stereo, and loudest spl of the day. Many other classes were present as well. Bass awards went to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in each class grouping. At the end of the day, it was a very successful show. You will definitely be seeing me at this awesome show from now on.
