I was looking for a nice truck. I searched and searched till the salesman decided to show me something different. Then WOW. He showed me this beautiful Dakota. It came with everything: 3.9. 6 cyl. 5 speed. Drives awesome.
Dodge D150 Goes South Hi guys, I recently purchased a 1984 Dodge D150 out of Arizona. I had been looking for one of these for quite some time, over a year on and off. Originally, I had my heart set on a mid-70's D100 but all that I saw were either too expensive or quite rusted. Plus, I wanted a stepside, which kind of limited the pool of what was available. I ended up settling on the '84 as mentioned. It was far from mint condition but seemed to have potential. The owner told me it had been repainted ... read more >>
Long Hunt Then eBay Find I've been searching for a mid-70's Dodge or Plymouth truck for a couple years. I'm not rich so all I wanted was something drivable to work on as I drove it. While watching auctions, I found my D150 with no bids. I waited till the last hour to bid and ended up winning my awesome truck for way less than I thought it would go for. My '77 Adventurer is in really great shape and I'm glad I found LMC to help with parts.
Dodge 4x4's 4 Life! My dad worked at the Dodge dealership as a mechanic in the late 60's and 70's until he married my mom and became a farmer. A farmer's number one tool is his truck and they were always Dodges. He passed that love of Dodges on to me. Here are a few of the ones I've acquired over the years. Mopar or no car!
When I was a kid, my dad had a 1989 D150 that I loved to go for rides in and trips to DB Mart (convenience store) for Awful Awfuls (a milkshake). That truck was the first vehicle I ever crashed; my dad left the keys in the ignition when he went to feed the horses so seven year-old me decided it was my turn to drive, which ended with the truck embedded in a rhododendron bush. Well, he ended up selling it when I was 10 (the old 318 was tired and failing, and it was more rust than ... read more >>
The "Hummin Cummins" Resurrection My best friend had purchased this truck in January of 2009 with big plans to turn it into a real head-turner. Little did we all know, he would pass away in an accident just 4 months later. The truck sat in his parents front yard for the next 8 years and for Christmas 2017, I was presented with the truck and work began immediately to bring the truck back to life. Many parts from LMC helped to bring not only the outside back to new condition, but the interior as well. Over a year later, ... read more >>
Cummins Diesel Fired Dodge Once I got to see the legendary 5.9 Cummins in action on commercial fishing boats and various logging equipment, I knew that was the engine for me. So, in '95 I bought this Power Wagon from a super fussy individual. He kept her nice and I have now been the owner for almost 25 years. Not a daily driver, but I use her when necessary. Runs like a dream with 160K. Maintenance and TLC is the key. I am now working on a headliner project that I hope LMC can help me out with. ... read more >>
Original Owner I purchased this out of the showroom from a local dealer on Christmas Eve 1987. It has a little over 34,000 miles and is pretty much original, except for the wheel/tires, sunroof, tonneau cover, and a little tint on the glass. After owning but not able to keep a number of classic cars in the 60's and 70's, I decided to hang on to this and I'm kind of glad I did. It was my very first four-wheel drive vehicle.
My previous trucks were Chevy's and Fords, this is my first Dodge Ram. A friend of mine had a 2001 Dodge Ram that he loved. I drove it a few times and really liked it. My wife and I searched for over a year and found one in Sacramento, CA. A deal was struck and we bought two one-way tickets to Sacramento and bought it. It’s the best pickup I've ever owned. It’s been my daily driver, work truck, travel truck, and tow vehicle. The current mileage is 150,300. The engine is a Cummings Turbo Diesel, 24 valve. After ... read more >>
I guess the truck had been sitting for a long time. I started it and it sounded strong. It smelled bad inside. I got it home. It had a hole in the floor and mice had been living inside. I started fixing it up a bit and it ran good when I drove it. It was banged up and I worked on the dance. I had the manifold bolts replaced and it's quiet. I've tightened up the pan bolts and it doesn't leak now, and runs nice for an old truck. It's got a long ways to go. ... read more >>
