BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - Organizers say they had another record crowd for the “Scrapin the Coast” exhibition of street-modified trucks, bikes, cars, low-riders and hot rods.

Organizer Eric Kendrick tells WLOX-TV (https://bit.ly/1GfBjCa ) that the crowd has been growing by about 20 percent each of the past several years.

The Sun Herald (https://bit.ly/1fqYYt0 ) reports that Saturday’s crowd was estimated at more than 20,000. The show ended Sunday.

There were stereo, burnout, hydraulic and bikini contests both days.

Co-founder Greg Miller says organizers don’t care about the vehicle’s age. Most are modern, but some are antiques.

Most activity takes place at the Coast Coliseum. But, as with Spring Break and Cruisin’ The Coast, vehicles travel Beach Boulevard, where spectators line the roadway with impromptu tailgate parties.
