I've had an extreme truck since they came out. The body lines are hot, they really produced a beautiful truck when they went into production. I keep adding an redoing things to it. My dream is to put a v8 in it.
Growing up my family made our fun. My dad and his friends would build trucks and our vacations were truck shows and going to the sand dunes in Michigan. So naturally when I turned 15 I had saved up enough money to buy this truck that my dad and I had found in the woods behind a mom and pop dealership. I tore this truck down to a frame sitting on milk crates with nothing left on it. Then, I rebuilt from the ground up in my little 2 car garage. Replaced floor boards rebuilt and improved the motor ... read more >>
Bought truck new in 1995, was in military, made many coast to coast moves, even had truck shipped to Hawaii in 1996, returned to mainland in 2000. Truck now has 414,000+ miles with OEM engine, replaced transmission at 260,000. Just recently had painted and in process of now restoring interior.
Truck had been sitting at a local repair shop for about two years. Turns out the owner didn't have the money to repair the transmission. I stopped a few times over the years and finally the lady that owed the truck decided to sell it, she bought it new. At first I was going to just get it running and try to make little money. Well one thing lead to another and it turned out to be a full frame off restoration. I needed a running gear so I went with a 2002 Tahoe 5.3 and a 4L60E motor ... read more >>
My first truck was a 64 when I was 15. I've always said before that I was too old to drive I would own another one but it would be a 4x4. I looked most of my life and found one in Ohio 6 years ago. Took the trip from Panama city Fl, brought it home and started the restoration. Thank you LMC for having the parts to make my life long dream come true. I'm 50 now and have the perfect truck!
My 1988 Chevy Silverado C1500 Stepside. Where Do I start off? Well My dad Bought this truck for $1000 back in 1990. He had his own construction company with a few other trucks for his employees and he made this one his personal truck. Well when my mom got pregnant with me around 1993, my dad let her drive it because it sat up higher and was a lot easier for her to get in and out of with her being pregnant. After I was born he turned it into a full on work truck for his business and ... read more >>
1987 GMC V1500 - Bought the truck when I was in High School for $1,500 (1998). The bed had been caught on fire by previous owner. I completed the first restoration in 2003 when on active duty Navy, using many LMC Truck parts and I still have the invoice saved in my filing cabinet. I have since been on 3 overseas deployments with the MS Army National Guard and Ole Red has been somewhat neglected. The clear coat is starting to flake and the interior is in much need of renewal. Just placed my interior parts order during the ... read more >>
I purchased this 1971 Chevy pick up sight unseen, my little brother was my eyes. I’ve always wanted the opportunity to restore a truck and finally got the option to do so. My brother called me and said he found a truck and believed it was a good deal. I was very excited with what had been started, when I saw the truck for the first time. I was very pleased with the work that had been done but was not too happy about how the body looked in regards to the patina look which is not anything that ... read more >>
The 2 wheel drive is a 1960 GMC 910 that I found in pieces in 1989. It has been a frame off restoration with a trans am clip which makes it handle like a sports car not a tank. It was originally a 261 3 on the tree but I couldn't stand driving it because of low power and poor handling. I currently have a 350 chevy with a turbo 350 and 10 bolt posi rear, power steering and brakes. When I finished this one I wanted a matching 4x4. 28 years later I came upon the 1960 chevy ... read more >>
