I would like to show you my 1995 Chevy S10 which I bought five years ago. The person I bought it from was trying to make it into a rat rod. I took this truck apart and did all the body and frame work. I had the truck painted 1964 Palomino Maroon with a metal flake green roof. Her name is "Simple." I did all the interior. It's in great shape. The best part about it is that I did all the work curbside in front of my house in the street, since I don't have a garage I ... read more >>

My grandfather bought this truck from the original owner in 1984 less than a year after it was bought from the lot new. It had Texas plates the whole time he owned it. I grew up with him in this truck, many many fishing trips. It's been in the family for 34 years. He drove it until his death in 2006 and then my aunt "purchased" it from my grandmother as a way to help her financially. Fast forward to 2015 and my aunt uncle had then preserved the truck and stored it until 2 weeks ago when I ... read more >>

This is my dads 1993 Chevy step side truck. I lost my dad last year to cancer. We were car guys we would always wake up in the morning and wipe our trucks off every morning. My dad loved his truck and took very good care of it he had a few cars but he loved his truck. One thing that stands out about one of our last talks i had with my dad was he knew he was leaving us soon and told me promise me one thing you can sell my other cars but please don't ever ... read more >>

This 1989 Chevy Suburban was my dad’s everyday driver. He had it when he married my mother in 1998. I grew up in the back of this suburban. I was a tall kid, so he left the second row seats down and let me ride like a king all the way in the back all sprawled out on the third row. We traveled all over the Midwest going to countless car shows and garage tours. Everyone knew it was him when they saw it coming down the street. My dad, Ken Service, was a hot rodder through and through. ... read more >>

Purchased this rig from the original owner in Idaho. She was quite rusty and sat for a number of years. Anything with a seal or O-ring pretty much had to be replaced. The stock engine is bored .060 over with a CompCam installed. The truck also sports a rebuilt transmission and transfer case. It was only with the help of my dad, who did the body welding for the rust spots and sealing the emblem holes, along with LMC Truck's AMAZING line of restoration parts that this beauty has come back to life. I replaced the headliner, some door ... read more >>

We purchased this Suburban in 1991 as a hunting truck. It spent 90% of it's life in the woods and not much attention to detail. Around 1998 it was professionally wrapped with Realtree Advantage camo vinyl material, which I'll never forget the company asking if we wanted "removable" or "permanent" and my dad saying permanent since it'll always be our hunting truck. In 2016 my dad gave the truck to my youngest son and our first chore was to remove the "Permanent" vinyl Realtree wrap. This process took almost a year. Since then the truck has Hot Rod Flatz ... read more >>

1991 Chevy Silverado – Donated by Gordon Energy and Drainage

November 1, 2018 | Tags:

    This truck, along with another truck, came to the Kansas City Kansas Public School Area Technical School Auto Collision Repair Program as a donation from Gordon Energy and Drainage in Olathe, Kansas. My students were especially aggravating one day, so I pulled this truck in and told them we were going to fix and paint it, not really thinking it would turn out to be much. I split the truck into left side for the morning and right side for the afternoon high school groups. Everyone knew which side they were responsible for, and it became a challenge to ... read more >>

    This truck was my dad’s. Not sure what year he bought it but I remember it from the late fifties. My dad worked for the railroad and after they replaced the ties, we would load them onto this truck above the cab. My dad would then sell them to farmers and anybody else for $1 each. We also hauled gravel, manure, 55 gallon drums we used for trash and emptied at the local dump. And anything else that needed to be hauled. We had a large empty lot next door and I would jump in and drive around when ... read more >>

    I bought this old gem about a year ago for my son Braydun, site un seen, and it quickly went south on us so we decided to completely restore her. It has been a summer that we will never forget, restoring a piece of American automotive history for my son. We started mid June with the goal of placing in our local car show on Aug 25th. We installed a new 350 with all new accessories to include the vintage air system from LMC. New lowered suspension, rear end and transmission. Thanks to LMC we also replaced all the ... read more >>

    My father and I operate a business that sells used building materials. We do demolitions on homes and businesses that are about to be demolished or renovated and sell the reclaimed materials. It seemed natural to find a truck that could be reclaimed and re-used. We found this one in Alberta but picked up a second donor vehicle in North Dakota. 6 years later it is now in use in our business during the summer months.

    I bought my blazer in 1989 from a Chevrolet dealership in Amarillo. It was a demonstrator and had about 1000 miles on it. It now has 331,000 miles. I put a new 350 engine in her at 285,000 miles. Her name is Betsy and has been that for almost 30 years. This is the fifth transmission she has had. The original exhaust has been replaced with Hedman headers followed by 3 inch dual Flowmasters. I have replace the hood and restriped and repainted the entire blazer a little bit at a time to keep from the costing too much ... read more >>
