For the past few years, I’ve traveled all over the Tri-State area going to various car shows. Everything from nationally known shows like Layd Out At The Park to smaller charity shows benefiting local animal shelters and food banks. I’ve had the privilege of hanging out with some amazing people and so many clubs that I’ve lost count. My favorite shows always hit close to home and I will do whatever it takes to make it to them. Billy Wheeler hosts some of the most laid back shows that have been my favorites since the first time I made it out to Monster Bass in 2012. There’s never a dull moment at the shows. Everything from 4-way tug-o-war to toilet paper relays to sunburn contests keep everyone entertained. As fun as the shows are, the reason I keep going back is the host, himself. Billy and his wife support the local businesses any chance they can. It’s always a family event no matter who you are, what you drive, or what club you’re in. Recently, Tint Plus held a benefit show for their long time friend, Danny Seymour, who is battling throat cancer. Words cannot express how moving it was when everything was tallied for the final amount raised. This past week, they lost a member of their car family and have gone into protect mode to take care of the final costs for the family. A funeral fund was set up at a local bank and they have set the goal at $3000. in just a few days, they’ve managed to make it halfway to their goal. The way that Billy Wheeler and his Tint Plus family have stepped up to help those around them in their time of need makes such a huge impact on the car world. Faith that there is someone looking out for you and the ones you love is a comforting thing and there’s no one better than Billy and his “family”. 

For information on how you can help with the Tint Plus Funeral Fund, you can contact the Palmetto Bank of Anderson, South Carolina or go by Tint Plus in Sandy Springs, South Carolina. They are having a car wash to raise donations for the funeral fund today (June 3rd) so if you are in the Anderson area, make sure and swing by to get your car washed or make a donation!

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.

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.
