1984 Chevy Scottsdale – Kayde S.

My father at age 15 bought his first truck, a 1984 Chevy Scottsdale, which he could only drive with a licensed adult. This person was usually his mother who had to use a five-gallon bucket to get into the truck. My dad worked on a grain and livestock farm, which meant the truck quickly became your typical "farm truck," hauling hay, pulling equipment, and even· warming newborn baby calves in the cab. When my dad got married he sold the truck locally and couldn't imagine why he sold his first truck. Luckily, he was able to buy it back ... read more >>

My First Truck The story of my very own truck is a very long and frustrating journey but I can try to sum it up. It was June 9th 2018 when I first laid eyes on my very own GMC truck. It was the meanest most ugly truck; but, to my surprise my dad said that it was mine. I was absolutely in love with this Frankenstein of a truck. Tearing the thing apart was the easy part, but cleaning it, and rebuilding the truck was the most eye opening/frustrating/amazing experiences I’ve ever had. There were countless times that ... read more >>

My Boy I got him 25 years ago. Have put in 4 old motors and 12 used transmissions. Got tired of all that. So I had built a 350 4 Bolt Main , 40’d over with a turbo 400 with a shift kit. 350 stall converter. 373 rear ended and front disc brakes. He’s what some call a sleeper. He and I are always ready for Fords . Or punk chevy’s. A bit rusty but a clean 68”. The year I was born. Definitely my boy.

Saved From Rotting Away My father had this 1992 Chevy c1500 for a long time. Since I was a kid I wanted it. He always said it was unreliable and not worth the time. He only used it for dump runs and such. Recently a drunk driver can down our one way street the wrong way taking out my vehicle. So my father gave me the option to have his 2004 Toyota Camry or the truck. I naturally jumped for the truck. It needed lots of work to get her running right and lots a work to get rid ... read more >>
