72 Chevy My son has always wanted a 72 chevy and always been a hard worker, from mowing yards, washing cars, to being a big hand in the family paving business he has earned it. Its been a few year project but we got it done before his 16th birthday, beautiful truck and hard working son.

1966 Ford Bronco – Mark K.

66 Bronco Half Cab I purchased this old horse from my father in law 20 years ago, when it was still just an old truck. I started looking at the first registration and found it to be an early truck that had been purchased the same month and year I was born. It might be in better shape than me? At least when my sons and I are done. Not going crazy with the build but hope to pick the new Bronco driving the original to herd it home.

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 >>

1969 Ford F100 -Jeremiah O.

Family Heirloom 1969 F-100 This is my 1969 FORD F-100. It belonged to my grandparents for the majority of it's existence. They had a camper on the back and used it to pull their 1969 Aristocrat Lo-Liner camping trailer. I remember many wonderful camping trips from my youth, where Grandpa and Grandma joined us with this truck and trailer. The truck wasn't used for much else, so it didn't acquire very many miles. Eventually they stopped camping as it became too much work for them to enjoy it. About 10 years ago my brothers and I purchased the Aristocrat ... read more >>

1952 Ford F3 – Wes N.

Wes' 1952 F3 Daily Driver I’ve always had the dream of owning a ’49 Ford F1. One day while perusing the Manitoba classifieds, I came across a green ’52 F3. The truck had a Chevy powertrain, duals, a homemade flat deck and stacks. The truck, though not exactly the style I was into, looked really neat. I decided it could be a fun daily driver and thought maybe I could even put a dump box on for collecting firewood. My very supportive wife agreed to make the 3 ½ hour drive out to see the truck on her birthday. ... 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.
