Marination representing Seattle for Best Food Cart on GMA

Marination Mobile, Seattle's favorite Hawaiian-Korean tacos and more truck, has been nominated as one of four food carts competing in \Good Morning America Weekend's Best Food Cart Challenge. Viewers were asked to nominate their favorite food cart with a 300 word essay. Kamala Saxton, who owns the "cart" (behemoth?) along with Roz Edison, said, "We knew that the contest was going on but did not ask our customers to complete nominations on our behalf as we know they are very busy people."

When Saxton got the congratulations call from ABC, she didn't believe it. "Being the true skeptic I am--coupled with having prankster friends who live in the 212 area code--I thought it was a joke. I immediately got off the phone and hit redial. Low and behold someone answered, 'ABC New York, how can I help you?'" Saxton laughed and added, "Alooooooha, Robin Roberts! And mahalo to all of our amazing customers who literally got us here, and there. They reaffirm this crazy path we've chosen every day."

Good Morning America will film the truck's business operations this Wednesday, at Marination's regular Fremont stop. (132 N. Canal St., November 18th, 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 pm.) To vote for Marination Mobile, visit www.GMA.ABCNews.com on Nov. 21. The food truck with the highest score from a judging panel and online votes will be announced as the winner on GMA Weekend sometime near the end of November.

Wonder if those other three contestants serve SPAM...? Bet Marination's Big Blue could demolition derby them all into scrap...
