Been searching for a Chevy Panel truck for awhile. Finally found one at Sherman Oaks California on Craigslist. Had a good mate go check it out and buy it for us in May 2017. It was sitting in a gravel yard all dusty under a carport. The previous owner didn't have any time to drive it so was selling it after he had done improvements for holidaying in, as we say in Australia. It was a totally different truck once we washed and waxed it. What a find, we were over the moon to find such a lovely truck ... read more >>

This truck belonged to a family friend who bought it new in 1982 at a local Chevrolet dealership here in San Antonio. He lived and worked in downtown SA so he didn't put a bunch of miles on it - it actually has only 58K on the ticker. He passed away in 2008 and the truck sat in the garage until I bought it in 2014 and began a 2 year frame on restoration doing all the work myself. I wanted to keep the original paint scheme going and did my best to keep the truck as close to ... read more >>

My love for trucks began in high school, and throughout the years I would own several different trucks. Our family had a steel frame building business so trucks were necessary for our everyday operations. Ownership for this truck dates back to 1974. The truck was just 3 years old at the time and was advertised in the local paper. Its first owner lived on Mackinaw Island. The owner’s job was maintenance on the Island; hence the tool boxes. The truck is a 1971: ¾ ton, 4 wheel drive, four on the floor, with lock out hubs and 1 ton ... read more >>

1967 Chevy C10 – Dennis B.

I have had the truck for about a year. I bought it from a classic dealer in Henderson, NV. I retired about a year and a half ago. My daily driver had been a late model Silverado, but after several months I realized I wasn't using the Silverado. I also have a ’38 Chevy Street Rod. My garage is tandem bay and I got tired of moving the Silverado every time I wanted the Street Rod, so I put the Silverado in the back bay. Then I really wasn't using the Silverado so I sold it and got the ... read more >>

Brotherly Love – Larry and Gary K.

Ford and Chevy lovers have always enjoyed friendly competition. But what happens when twin brothers choose sides? In all honesty, Larry and Gary's love for trucks (and each other) is greater than any brand loyalties they have. Larry's Fords My love for classic vehicles goes back to my high school days. My first vehicle was a 1949 Ford Coupe, which I co-owned with my twin brother, Gary. After that, being influenced by older brothers who also loved classics, I purchased many vehicles, including Chevys, Dodges and Fords. At one point, I was buying and selling so many vehicles, the ... read more >>

My Blazer is a 1971 4WD. I purchased it from its original owner in 1992. I drove a 1970 GMC in high school and always wanted a convertible, so rather than cutting the roof on my pickup I started looking for a Blazer with a removable top. Surprisingly I found a Blazer down the road from my neighborhood. It was in great condition when I bought it, and I drove it daily for a number of years after, until I decided to restore it to original- okay, mostly original. I now am running a fuel injected 5.7 CI engine, ... read more >>

I had been looking for a 1966 Chevrolet C10 for about two years because my dad had a 1965 when I was younger and I really like the square body style. So when I found this one last May in Nashville, Tennessee, with the 3-speed on the tree and 283 V8, I ended up purchasing it. My grandson Jaden (15 years old) and I flew back to drive it home to Ogden, Utah. Well, when I picked it up it wasn’t quite as nice as I thought it would be, so during our trip we fixed several items. After ... read more >>

I'd been thing of buying a used truck for occasional use around my simple tree farm. I didn't want to spend a lot of money, but the choices for under $2500, regardless of make, had been overused and well rusted. Then, a friend mentioned an estate auction offering this '84 Chevy S-10. They said it was in good shape (hopefully the photos worked out). I soon discovered that this truck had received a Rusty Jones treatment which had served the truck well even with dings and bumps to the pickup bed. At under $1000 there was a flood of ... read more >>

I bought the truck from my granddad's cousin around 1980. Had it painted for what seems like pennies now. My granddad helped me create and install new bed boards. Drove the truck daily until 1992. The truck sat in the shed until 2004. What a waste. My wife bought me parts from your catalog for Christmas for 20 years. The resto-mod started in 2004 and was done in 2015. I was able to talk my best friend, Steve Warren, into doing the build. I took the truck apart and Steve helped until we took it to his shop around ... read more >>

When I was younger my grandpa was my idle/hero. He owned this '89 GMC truck that was purchased new from the dealership. I had fallen in love with that truck and spending time with grandpa. In elementary school I would pretend to be sick just so grandpa would pick me up in the truck and we would sit on his chair together watch TV for the rest of the evening. In 2004 tragedy struck our family and my grandpa passed away from cancer. As I was too young still, my grandpa's truck was sold. On December 20, 2016, I ... read more >>

Something we always wanted back- Steve and Susie Furtado and their 1977 Chevy Bonanza Back in the late 70’s/early 80’s in Campbell, CA, Susie and I had a ’77 Chevy short bed that we really liked. We traded it in for a bigger truck to tow a 26 foot travel trailer. We really missed that Chevy. Fall of 2012 we started looking for another 70’s squarebody. On an internet web site we saw this 1977 Bonanza. The picture looked pretty good and the price seemed very fair and it was a little less than an hour away. December 31, ... read more >>

I've had several Blazers in the past for plowing vehicles. When my 1985 Blazer lost the battle with the Upstate NY winters, I started my search. A friend of a friend of a friend said he knew were there was an '89 Blazer in great shape, but no motor. I purchased the motorless Blazer for $300. My buddy Tod Barlow and I came up with the idea of using the spring and axles out of a 1979 GMC K20 P/U to make a heavy 3/4 ton Blazer. We purchased new floor pans, rubber flooring, rockers, heat shield, sound deadened matting, ... read more >>
