January 28, 2021 | Tags: CD

This here truck has been in my family its whole life. My uncle bought it from the dealership with a flowmaster exhaust. My mother later bought it for my father and he daily drove this truck to his work which was a 40 minute commute. My family has so many memories in this truck such as road trips to the beach or having to push it across the street at a stop light because it broke down. Both myself and my two older brother learned how to drive in this truck so it is very sentimental to us. I'm ... read more >>

Never Give Up I was given a 1966 chevrolet c10 SWB when I was 11 (1984) from my great uncle who bought it brand new. I drove it until I was 16 when I wrecked it. Dad sold it, and the guy who got it patched it back together and drove it a couple more years. However, he was tragically killed in a car wreck in a dang s-10 pickup. The truck sat in a field for 25+ years, and when I was finally able to get it back, it was too far gone....The only usable parts were some ... read more >>

1978 Chevy Scottsdale – Sam H.

| Tags: CC

My 1978 Scottsdale is a four-generation truck. My great-grandfather bought the truck new in ‘78. He drove it about 10 years before my grandfather bought it from him. You can probably figure out that it was my dad’s first car. Then it comes to me. I saw the truck sit in the shop for nearly 13 years before we finally started working on it. Like most Squarebodys, the truck was eat up with rust. So between my dad and LMC, I now have a truck the should last at least another 40 years. ... read more >>

My 85 Chevy I bought the truck 21 years ago. Itis  my prize possession. I built the truck bed, the box sides, wheel wells, fenders and much more from LMC truck. I changed the cab with a out of state cab. It has a custom made interior trimmed in real polished stainless steel, and a real inner cab roll bar. Lots of upgrades, yet stayed true to the vintage and style of truck. I did all my own body work and painter myself.

5 Generations in a 1954 Chevrolet 3100 My grandfather purchased this truck in 1954. He was a carpenter and used it for work. He gave this truck to my father in 1965, and I drove it to High School graduating in 1967. It wasn't cool then when a lot of the guys had 56 & 57 Chevys but it is cool now. My father gave this truck to me in 1994 and I got cheap paint job on it to make it look better, but it still ran perfect. I taught my daughter how to drive in it when ... read more >>

PROJECT DAILY DRIVER I purchased this 1963 C-10 Shortbed Fleetside truck in 1995 from a co-worker who used it as a daily driver. He purchased it from a fellow who bought it in Oklahoma. After having the truck for over twenty years, and having recently retired, I decided it was time to take it from a daily driver to something little more a special. In the fall of 2017 with the help of my son, I started by doing a frame off restoration. After having the frame blasted and painted, I installed disc brakes on the front, a power ... read more >>

I recently bought a 1978 Chevy Pick up which I hope to restore, it’s an original short box 4x4, original paint, faded but solid. The inside needs some TLC but in time I hope to restore it to its former glory.
