In February of 1972, I was honorably discharged from the United States Army and when I arrived home, I saw a brand new Ford pick-up in the garage at the home place. My Stepfather had just purchased the truck and drove it until 1993. As he aged, his strength began diminishing and finally, he was unable to turn the steering wheel since it was not equipped with power steering. He asked me if I wanted the truck and I said, "yes" without hesitation. The truck was now my truck, with 49,000 actual miles, being fully stock. I drove the ... read more >>

This is my 1992 Dodge D150 truck, I’ve had this truck for about 2 years know and I love the ole truck. It has the 318 fuel injection motor and the 5 speed standard transmission. My grandad loves these old trucks so he’s helped me do a lot to this truck! We’ve taken the old carpet out and replaced with a black vinyl mat and I’ve had the seat reupholstered. There's much more I’ve done to the truck inside and out. Lot has been done from LMC!! I’ve really enjoyed it.

This project was a one year build. It took me four years to find the vehicle. My father owned this truck in 1975 and so it was a project of sentiment. I wanted to do something different. It had to be special. I put a 24 valve Cummins Diesel and modified the body to a dually. The truck drives on a 1-ton frame. I kept the same colour scheme a the truck my dad had. The closest I could get from that year is the blue form a 2017 Jeep YJ, colour code Chief Blue with 2017 Viper White ... read more >>

My name is Jill, and I'm Todd K.'s daughter and this is his truck story. This truck had been in our family for many years now, my grandfather Wayne bought this truck brand new in 1979. This was his daily driver to work everyday to and from the cheese factory in Winchester, Ontario. He always talked about how he loved that truck and how it was a very reliable truck for him all those years he drove it. Although he loved the 79 it was time for him to get a newer truck so he went out and bought ... read more >>

I bought this pickup for my dad in June 1992 for $2,000. He had been keeping and driving my '63 Impala for several years while I was stationed overseas. When I told him that I was coming back to get the car for restoration, he said he had found a good pickup to replace the transportation that I was taking away from him. No problem--I paid for the truck as a way of thanking him for taking care of the car. Unfortunately Dad only had the truck for three years before he passed away in June 1995. When I ... read more >>

1973 Ford Bronco – Kenny R.

    I purchased this Bronco new in 1973 from Gamel Ford in Aurora Missouri. It has made many hunting trips to Colorado over the years. It was at the river almost every weekend during the summer months. I have always taken great steps to take care of it and your company has helped me with that. All the parts that I’ve purchased from LMC have been top notch and have worked perfect. There have been so many wonderful memories that I have made in my Bronco and at 71, I’m still making many more! Thank you for your high quality ... read more >>

    I bought the truck when I was 16. Originally I wanted a square body but I found this old man owned OBS that basically said to buy me. She had 130k on it at the time stock everything. Well the stock didn’t last long, first I did a leveling kit, but of course that wasn’t enough. I went with a 5.5in procomp suspension lift that myself and a few buddy’s did at my house, after I get the truck back on it’s two feet I blow a crank herring at 210k. Dropped a brand new 5.7 in it. Now ... read more >>

    For Hector and his family, trucks have always been a part of their lives. He and his wife both grew up around them and now their kids have caught "the disease." And since Hector works at LMC Truck, it's no exaggeration to say he lives and breathes trucks. Watch his story.

      After getting a 7.3idi diesel motor I wanted a solid old truck to swap it into and drive daily. I've always wanted a highboy but living in the salt belt in Belleville Ontario old trucks are hard to find, this is why I took to Kijiji. I bought a truck from Star City Saskatchewan and hitched a ride with my sister in law as she passed through on her way to Banff to pick it up. The real story begins here, The truck I had bought sight unseen on only a few pictures was not all it was cracked ... read more >>
