      It was a tough contest this year as our judges will attest.

      "These are all trucks I'd walk through the weeds for (and several I think I already have)," remarked Marsha Williams, who came to us from American Classics Truck Parts.

      That was a sentiment echoed by the other half of our dynamic judging duo, noted author Tom Brownell.

      Tom admired the "cleverness with either the photo or the caption, or both, but also in the case of the canopy express, the rareness of the truck."

      To see what they were up against and to judge for yourself, here are the rest of the submissions. Thanks to all who submitted -- especially those with all the very clever captions! Y'all done real good! Be sure to check your mail in the upcoming weeks for your personal invite to the awards banquet at The Sands Casino in Las Vegas. For those who can't make it, the extravaganza will be carried live on network television.

      And if you believe that, you believe that "It Ran When I Parked It!!!"
