Our Hope Back in 2000 I was blessed with purchasing a like new 1996 Ford Bronco Eddie Bauer Addition. It is Dark Green/Champaign with the Champaign/Black interior, 5.8L/351Windsor, 177K miles with no off road, no wrecks and no rust. As you can see in the pictures, it has had some style/theme up-grades to honor our Military and Veterans with many parts coming from LMC truck. It is supposed to mimic a P-51 Mustang which is my favorite aircraft. I just retired from the military after 25 years and have driven the truck for the past six years to car ... read more >>
1960 Apache 20 (3/4 ton) Longbed I have had ‘Old Red’ for almost 50 years. I bought it from a coworker in 1971 for $100. He had received it as a hand-me-down from his father-in-law (original owner who put on the ’62 hood) and he let the block freeze. Two cans of Bar’s Leaks and the water leak was stopped. I was building my own house and used it as a utility haul truck. With its ‘granny gear’ 4 speed and a “NoSPIN Differential” (see photo) it also served as a great truck for getting to, cutting and hauling ... read more >>
Broken Up Needed a low truck due to a work accident, purchased a 95 Chevy 1500 long bed extracab, it's still a work in progress, it's been dropped 6 inches with a c-notch and airbags in the rear and a ride tech front-end kit, rolling on 245/40r20s, motor swap with a 99 vortex 5.7 litre.
Rugged Old Ram My story is not flashy or exciting. I have a ‘97 Dodge Ram 1500 that is used as a truck- hauling wood , pulling boats, plowing driveways, and transporting lumber. She was pretty when I started but Central New York winters are not kind to vehicles and it needs a little help now . The 5.9 motor is tough though and nothing gets in its way, especially snow. People are amazed at the snow it will push. I have over 3 thousand in repairs and upgrades and now I want to replace some sheet metal to ... read more >>
Hello everybody, my name is Rick. I'm 58 years old and I'm hearing impaired (deaf). I live in Antioch, CA, one hour east of San Francisco. I am a certified automotive mechanic. I graduated from South Seattle Community Collage and then worked as an equipment maintenance mechanic for Contra Costa County for 30 years. In 1989 I went to Winter Chevrolet, the local Chevy Dealership in Pittsburg, CA, and ordered a brand new Silverado C-1500. I waited for 3 months while the truck was being shipped to the West coast from the factory back east before I could take delivery ... read more >>
43 Years With My Partner I was 43 years old when I bought my first new truck. I ordered it with 3 tone trim and super cool radiator with a 302 engine. 150 horsepower. I used my truck in heavy construction from 1977 to 1992 and went through two engines! I retired my truck in 1992. I wanted to upgrade my truck. I found a wrecked 1992 GT Mustang engine complete.That upgraded me to a 220 horsepower that had only 1100 miles on the engine. I also purchased a AFT and front tank out of a 1992 Ford pickup ... read more >>
Desperado This is my 1970 F100. I call her Desperado because she has been in desperate need of a makeover for the last 20 years. Bought her in 1990 from her original owner to start a lawncare business. She was pure white with original hubcaps, whitewalls, 360 engine and 3 on the tree. Over time she deteriorated but I still drove her weekly. Ten years ago I moved the 3 speed to the floor and added a Hurst shifter. I always had dreams of restoring her and finally my wife agreed to let me do just that for her ... read more >>

Original paint, 6l90e tranny swap, Vortec Supercharger, original block bored to a 6.2 liter stroker. 625 rwhp. I drove away from my wedding in this truck in 2004 and brought my son home from the hospital when he was born in 2011. I just love spending time with my son in the garage tinkering as my wife calls it. Showing him how things work and how to ... read more >>
I have been wanting to fix / repair one of these 69 f100 for many years. I saw one for sale when I was 21 years of age (now 63) but could not afford it at the time. Many years later the urge of wanting a f100 hit me again. Now that I was able to spend cash on purchasing one I begin my mission on locating a 69 F100. Luckily I found one with minimal research and local also. I paid the seller when we reached a dollar amount and then towed her home. This was in 2011 ... read more >>
The Tank This was my son's truck through high school, he opted for a more economical vehicle so I started playing around with it. Its 1987 Ramcharger two wheel drive, original 318 built with 360 Edelbrock aluminum heads MSD ignition slight cam 3:90 rear end, has 73K original miles. I am selling it now to move onto another project. But I wanted to share my work.
