This was my Dad's truck when I was in high school. I occasionally drove it. Graduated in 1983. It was the model with the black on the bottom and orange and yellow on top. I took over the truck in 1988 and painted it all white. I got married and kept it for a few years. I sold it cause I had to start being responsible for my first daughter who was on the way. I'd see the truck around town over the years but then stopped seeing it altogether. Fast forward to 2018 when a friend of mine ... read more >>
Second owner of a 1977 4x4 short bed f150, purchased in 1991. Was my daily driver for 15 years. Has been stored and not driven for the past 13 years. My 16-year-old asked if she could drive it instead of getting a “new” car. Converting it from a 300 and 4 speed to a efi 351 and overdrive auto transmission. The first of many parts needed from LMC was a steering column bearing for an automatic steering column from a 1982 donor.
I grew up in this blazer as a boy. I have always wanted it. After 20 years of it sitting at my Dad's shop fading away, I finally got him to give it to me in 2019. This has been a long wait now getting into it with the full support of my girlfriend, I am able to bring it back to life. Little at a time it is an adventure I take my two boys to baseball in it and my mom is so happy to see it coming back to life. My dad well, he wishes he ... read more >>
62 and Feeling Fine In my youth I owned, and restored a 1964 Chevrolet C10 short-bed, step-side truck. It was indeed back then, my pride and joy. In my early twenties I found myself strapped for cash, and thus had to sell my truck. At some level I've missed owning and driving that Chevy my entire life. Life went on. I would become a Southern California police officer, husband, father, and within the last five years, a grandfather. As well as a three-time, 32-year cancer survivor. I'm now 62 years old. Memories of the 1964 Chevrolet C10 remain vivid. ... read more >>

At the age of 15 my son Ryan, wanted to fix up two Chevy trucks as a father and son project. After looking for a little while, we found two 1993 Chevy 1500. So we got them home and spent the first year getting all the running gear taken care of. Then he drove his over the winter. The next summer, we worked on the body and paint. The last year we worked on mine and got it painted. This project reminded me of the days I worked on cars with my father. I can only hope Ryan remembers ... read more >>
My New to Me Used Truck I bought a used Dodge Ram1500-w/ 4x4, but the dash had been completely trashed, and the radio doesn’t work, but it’s been lifted for off- road use and I really enjoy my used truck, but with 4.00+ a gallon for here in Ca, I don’t drive it everyday, though I’m going to fix it up. It’s my first full size truck.
Restored 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 I retired two years ago and decided to stay busy by started a handyman service. Just me, my truck and a lifelong collection of tools and experience. Trouble was, no truck. The vehicle I had last used was dead and went to scrap. My son saw me searching online for a second hand pickup. He said, “Dad, look for the newest,,rust free old dodge you can find with the Cummins Turbo Diesel. You will never need another truck.” I searched for two months and found this 1998 on a ranch in Southern Alberta. I ... read more >>
I have been looking for an affordable Pre2000 C1500 Suburban for quite a while. While flipping through Marketplace on Facebook I came upon a 1999 C1500 Suburban 2WD from Texas. The photo's looked real good and it only ad 180,000 miles on it. I messaged the person selling it. I was her first response so we agreed to meet immediately near her home. I took cash with me just in case this was the one. Well, it was. I took it for a test drive and noted all the little issues with it and no major ones. Seems it ... read more >>
My first vehicle was a 1950 Chevrolet 1/2 ton pickup that I bought in 1973 when I was 16 years old. Over the next year my Dad, brother and I spent most weekends working on that truck and making it just right for a 16 year olds first car. Last year my Dad (now 83) starting a losing battle with his 2nd cancer. I was spending a lot of time at his house and the discussions always seemed to go back to those days when we were working on cars and spending time together. I realized that these were ... read more >>
