This past weekend in Biloxi, Mississippi premiered the wildest show on the coast, Scrapin The Coast 2020! This one-of-a-kind spectacular show attracts builders and vehicles from all around the world! Only top quality cars, trucks and motorcycles are featured here. A sea of custom paint jobs and unique setups surrounded 24,000 attendees (a record for Scrapin)! The live music performances, burn out competitions and stereo contests makes this a truly exclusive experience.
The Heart of Any Air Suspension System
Although VIAIR was unable to attend the show this year, repeat exhibitors Phat Phabz and Our Lifestyle Podcast showcased our motto: “VIAIR is the heart of any air suspension system”. One of the ways we bring this message to life is through our decals and posters. It’s also used as an educational tool to explain how air suspension works:
- The compressor acts as the heart, air bags as the lungs, the controller as the brain, and airlines are like veins through the body.
- If your heart fails, the rest of your body cannot function.
- That’s why it’s important to purchase a good quality heart in order to receive a good running system. It’s as simple as that.
The heart of any air suspension system message is paired with our New Gen. 2 Compressors! Air suspension enthusiasts praise our sleek new head design and 100% Duty Cycle @ 200 PSI which is the perfect solution for upgrading your trunk setup.

Phat Phabz Bagged and Body Dropped
Phat Phabz brought out all the stops to showcase their VIAIR equipped booth vehicles this year! They featured top-notch bagged and body dropped vehicles that stopped attendees in their tracks. Phat Phabz is known for their excellence in bags, body drops, & billets with builds. Their builds are featured at SEMA year after year. As a master dealer of VIAIR, they are your go-to for VIAIR’s New Gen. 2 dual packs or to stock up on your air suspension needs.
Our Lifestyle…The Podcast
Automotive Mini Truckin’ inspired online radio show, Our Lifestyle Podcast, hosted by Mike “The Mayor” Murray & Jason “ODB” encompasses the custom lifestyle of the many genres of the automotive world. Focusing on air suspension in the mini truck scene, Our Lifestyle Podcast is the go-to source for everything Scrapin The Coast! Throughout the show, viewers could visit their social media page to view the latest pictures, videos and shout outs of the “who’s who” in the air suspension scene at Scrapin The Coast show. Their booth display hung a VIAIR banner that showcased their support while they passed out VIAIR goody bags with lanyards and decals with our “VIAIR is the heart of any air suspension system” tagline.

18 Years and Counting
Greg Miller, Eric Kendrick, Ronny Tolar and Myles Holcomb have been the event organizers and hosts for the past 18 years! This show grew from humble beginnings: it started with 450 vehicles hosted at its original location at the Gulfport Sportsplex in Gulfport, Mississippi, and has since outgrown the facility to its current location at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum.
With a new record attendance of approximately 24,000 spectators, 2,300 feature vehicles, and over 176 contestants in the stereo contest, Scrapin The Coast is representing the quality of the show in the custom car community!
