Slam, Bam, Thank You Alabam(a)
Once again, Orange Beach Invasion pre-registrations reached their max for 2022’s event. And with this being a pre-reg only show, that meant that the show was at full capacity even before it officially began! Held in Orange Beach, Alabama, the showgrounds were as beautiful as the rides themselves.
OBI has gained quite a reputation for its show vehicle approval process, which includes a “no squatted trucks” rule since the owners of said trucks have been blamed for less-than-ideal behavior at past events. Anyone who wanted to show their vehicle at OBI had to send in a photo of their vehicle for approval from the show staff—no exceptions. Say what you will about these rules, but no one can deny that the quality of vehicles at this year’s show was top notch!
The event’s title sponsor was none other than American Force Wheels, so it made sense that plenty of huge trucks on huge wheels were in attendance, but of course, tons of slammed rides were there as well. Everything from vintage iron to practically new trucks could be seen throughout the show, offering spectators lots to look at no matter what their preference was—barn-fresh patina or polished-out graphics.
And if you needed some parts for your own ride or a fresh pile of the latest threads, OBI had lots of vendors on hand to take care of you, with a bunch of food spots to keep you energized throughout the weekend.
