1957 Chevy-Del B.

| Tags: 1957 3100 57

Grandpa bought it new. It was purchased to work, and used on the farm for many years. When Grandpa left the farm, he gave me the pickup. When I asked him if he expected me to restore it, he said,"No, you can drive the damn thing off of a cliff if you want to". I chose to not do that. It's not very pretty, and unfortunately it has lost even more paint having sat outside for quite a few years, but I love the patina, and the fact that it is a totally unrestored original survivor. So do lots of ... read more >>

1954 Chevy-Joe C.

I restored my truck 25 years ago and was forced to sell it as my former better half insisted I had too many toys and she wanted me to downsize my collection. I drove it down to a local Jeep dealership to find her a new car and the owner asked if I would be willing to trade my truck, 1 for 1, for a new wrangler 2 door jeep. I did...sure it was a great deal....but I have been kicking myself ever since. Three weeks ago and 25 years after I restored it, I decided to look online and ... read more >>

This is my 1981 GMC C1500. It was originally given to me by my grandpa who was about to have it scrapped. I was fifteen then and had no idea what I was doing. Over this last year and a half, I've done all the bodywork, paint, engine work, and so much more to get this thing back on the road. I'm sixteen now and here she is. It's been a ton of fun and a HUGE learning experience, but I've learned a lot more than just how to fix up a truck. I decided to share it with ... read more >>

I recently sold my 1999 Tahoe which was used in the winter Tahoe catalog.   Business changes lead me to need a truck again.  After a month long search I found this 1990 Chevy Silverado K1500 at a dealership were it was a trade in. The truck had 127,000 miles and had 1 previous owner. I started with a cooling system overhaul, brakes, rear axle, shocks and more. Then I placed my initial LMC order for this truck. This included wheels, step bars, headlamp relay kit and more. This was followed by several more orders including carpet, instrument cluster lens, ... read more >>

I started the build with 2 trucks and picked threw each with the help of my father and brother. I wanted a lifted truck so we put in 4 inch blocks and 10 leafs on each side so the truck won't squat at all. Messed around with some paint an metallic till I loved be color! Just a daily driver and it's perfect to me.

After getting my first job on my fifteenth birthday, I started to save all of my money with the goal of buying a square body Chevy. I had always loved these trucks, and it was my dream to have one. After a couple of months of saving up all my money, I started looking around for a truck that I liked, but I could still afford. A couple of months went by, and we found the perfect truck and drove 3 hours to go pick it up. The truck was in good condition, but it definitely needed some work. ... read more >>

I always wanted one on these trucks growing up and never had one, so I told myself that when I had my own place and a garage I would build one. So the day came and I started looking around till I found one with a good frame and brought it home. The truck was totally taken apart even the rivets in the frame everything cleaned and painted and started to put it back together. I ran across things in the project that made it take way longer than I wanted but it is all together and I am ... read more >>
