1989 Chevy Suburban 1500- Joe A.

Ever since high school (class of 85) I fell in love with the "Box" style of the suburban. It wasn't until I was in my early 40's that I finally purchased one for myself. She was in pretty good shape with some swiss cheese in the quarters and rockers, but thankfully I discovered LMC and your ample replacement panels and I got to work. Over the years, I have purchased many parts from your great company to keep "bouncing Betty" on the road. This year is the 30 year anniversary for my antique and I plan on passing her down ... read more >>

My father purchased this GMC new in 79. He and my mother went everywhere in it. I became the family service person and mechanic at 18 at the time of purchase. The truck passed to my mother after his passing in 1998. I shuttled her in it up until she passed in 2015. By then time had taken its toll and it needed some attention. One of her last wishes was that it be restored. The engine which had about 170,000 miles was pulled out and rebuilt. The cylinders were bored 0.20 and the block fitted with high performance pistons, ... read more >>

1998 GMC- Jerry M.

I’ve been an LMC customer since 2014 and I want to share my story. I came home to Plainview, Texas in 2011 and in my mother’s backyard was this 1998 GMC belonging to my dear mother which I later purchased. In combination I came across a street truck magazine and the dear LMC catalog which lit me to fire up my love for an American dream, to dress up my truck, a 1998 GMC, with LMC catalog accessories. Since then, I’ve installed a slip kit, c-notch kit, drop shocks which slammed my truck from the rear end inches from the ... read more >>

This 1982 Gmc was bought by used in 1986 by my father-in-law. He sold it in 1995 to his sister and brother-in-law for a farm truck. It worked great until the tranny gave out and they parked it in a bush. In 2012 I resurrected it off the farm and parked beside the garage. 6 years later, over Christmas I pulled it into the shop and got the motor running, pulled the tranny out and have begun restoring it.

Father and son project with help of a few good friends. I originally bought it from my aunt. My dad painted it for her way back in the 80's when she had it. It took roughly 6 years on and off and still buying parts from LMC to improve the truck. First time I drove it since it was close to being finished was to graduation. Full restoration from frame up.

1970 Chevy Blazer- Terry A.

I found this truck at a car show swap meet in 2016. It was all basically original including the drive train. It had the 350 cu inch motor, Turbo 350 and 411 gears. I figured it was due for an upgrade. It did get partially done when it was rear ended. Just my luck! At that point in time I decided to do a complete do-over from bumper-to-bumper. My goal was to keep it almost stock looking. The truck was completely dismantled. Mario from Novelli's Customs did a fantastic job on the body work, replacing all sheet metal damage (no ... read more >>

I purchased this truck on 1-16-17 with the intention of just using it to haul. I have built a number of vehicles but had never done a truck. It had been a while since I did a build and was considering selling one of my previous builds to satisfy the itch. My wife said, "Why don't you just build that one?" It was painted (badly) in orange and white. When I went to pick it up, my son stated, "I will call her U-Haul." Thus, the build was coined "Project U-Haul" and the rest is history. I started the tear ... read more >>

This truck was purchased August 17, 1981, from Newton Chevrolet in Chattanooga, Tennessee, by a man who lived in Harrison, Tennessee. He died just a couple of years later, and the truck remained parked in a garage for seven (7) years, until his daughter got married. His daughter and son-in-law drove the truck, and put approximately 58,000 miles on it until 2001. During those years, the engine was damaged and replaced with a 350 engine, complete with aluminum heads, headers, aluminum intake, and Edelbrock carburetor. In October 2001, the son-in-law was in Lansing, Michigan with the truck, working to construct ... read more >>
