The Gift My dad gave me his 79 GMC. He is 87. I asked him to leave it to me, but of course I told I didn't want him dying any time soon. The following month he came to me to come pick it up and put in my name. I show him pictures of how I was goning make it look after I start updating the plain truck. So I have been adding to it as much as I can with the goal being a show truck.  I have rims,tires, jeep type halo led lights, sound system alpine ... read more >>

1995 52K Cheyenne It was bought in 1995 as a graduation present. A unknown added a leaf a torsion key to increase towing capacity. During the early 2000s winter the water froze and cracked the small block 305 with 51k miles. The Chevrolet sat on the side of a house then on a trailer up until 2020, where it was dropped off in my driveway and we started to clean it up a little. I had a Small block 350 out of a 1990 Silverado, put a new flywheel and clutch pack on the 350, and dropped it in ... read more >>

My Work Truck I'm currently restoring my truck. So far I've added a fuel tank to the left side, replaced both doors, fenders and hood. This summer I'll be replacing the bedside panels, and toying with how to hide the left side fuel tank fill.

It is a California truck. I purchased this as a hobby. The truck was pretty much original. I gave it a suspension lift, new shocks, leaf springs, and brake lines. But now this is where LMC comes in to help me get the parts I need to finish it off. Still have much to do, but the truck runs great and is getting lots of attention everywhere I go.

1977 2wd K5 Cool little story, I bought this truck from my best friend years ago and as life got tough on me with my daughter going to college and getting married I had to sell it to help pay for things. Never bitter about it but missed my truck bad. Then one day my daughter invited me for dinner and when I showed up her and her husband found the truck and bought it back for me. Needless to say the truck will never leave this family again

From Scratch with LMC At 71 I launched a new hobby. For 5 years I watched a blue 74 C10 square body hull wasting away in the neighbors yard. After several years and multiple offers the hull became my project. Thank God for LMC! I did some body work, then painted it red. Wrong answer. Wife hated it. After 50 years together I knew the only answer was sandpaper, tape and a different color paint. I wisely let her pick it out. I installed a 350 bored out .0030, double hump heads, aluminum pistons backed by a turbo 350 ... read more >>

I purchased this truck and drove it home. It will need a lot of TLC but l think it's going to be a fun and enjoyable project hopefully be driving it with a lot of upgrades by mid summer!

1993 Chevrolet silverado k2500 love I bought this about 2 years ago from my neighbor, I absolutely LOVED this truck when I first saw it. I mentioned to him that if he ever wanted to sell it to please let me know. I had a 2008 silverado 1500 at the time, a month or two later the engine blew in it. Long story short, I got a good engine and sold the 2008. He approached me and asked if I was serious about buying the 1993. I said YES without hesitation. In july of 2017 I owned it, I ... read more >>
