Gypsy - Dad's '76 GMC This '76 gmc was my dad's truck in the late '80s and early '90s. He passed away in '93 when I was 8 years old. Soon after passing, my mom sold his truck. Fast forward 26 years, I get a call saying the truck was found and the owner was willing to sell it. Without hesitation, I bought it sight unseen. And well, now it's a completely restored classic that will live in my family for the rest of time.

I found it sitting on the side of the road in Antioch CA. It had already been broken into. I purchased it as is. I had huge dreams and visions for it. 5 days later after a drunk driver decided to plow into it. The front end broke the water pump. I was going to junk it as I felt it was trash. It took me month to get over it but I’m glad I didn’t junk it. Now (2 years later) it stands like a beast 6.0 lq9 with gen 4 internals, twin turbo and a 300 shot. ... read more >>

1968 Chevy C10 – Vivian C.

Marylin's Story This is a story about my husband’s truck. This is Marilyn’s Story. For as long as he could remember, Eddy had his eye on a 1971 GMC step side pickup. It rested on blocks at Performance Auto and Marine in Chickasha, Oklahoma. It was just a shell of a truck - no wheels, tires, transmission, or engine. It didn’t even have seats or a steering wheel. The telephone pole imprint embedded in the grill was evidence it had suffered a collision, which would explain the missing hood. Despite its imperfections, Eddy saw potential and every time he ... read more >>

Built with Pride 1991 Scottsdale I was in search of a full sized pickup while living in NC, since I just purchased a home and it became evident that a pickup truck was going to be a necessity.  Little did I know ,that same pickup truck would move me six times.  I purchased it a Lyle Chevrolet in High Point NC on 12/29/1991.  She is a 4.3 L, Straight Drive.  And back then, there was not to many bells and whistles came with it.  It had A/C, premium sound, tilt wheel, sliding rear window, and that was about it. ... read more >>

1989 Chevrolet Silverado – Tegan J.

June 14, 2021

This is my 1989 K1500 Silverado, and it has been a part of the family since brand new. It was bought by my grandmother (granny) and given to my dad to cruise around town and take to local car shows. He did just that, and then when I came along, I fell in love with the “big red truck” in the garage. When I was 15, it was given to me to be my first vehicle. With a few parts from LMC, the 22,000 mile custom conversion truck was a daily driver again. It has since been returned to ... read more >>

1957 Chevy 3100 – Brit S.

June 11, 2021

Bringing my very first vehicle purchase back to life! My dad and I drove to Warsaw, MO where I purchased this 1957 Chevrolet Truck in 1982 as a sophomore in high school. It had already gone through its first transformation when I found it- housing a 350 with a 4-speed manual transmission. After college I parked the truck behind a barn on our family farm in southeast Kansas until its resurrection began in 2015. My wife and I began to take it apart piece by piece as the 5yr resto-mod project got underway. The ground-up, finished product now holds ... read more >>
