1983 Chevy C30 – Curtis F.

March 30, 2021 | Tags: CC

I found a 1983 C30 searria Sierra Classic heavy haul pickup with only 147,000 miles on it sitting at a farm no longer in use. It has a heavy 6.2 diesel, with an after market Banks side winder turbo and a special 10 speed manual transmission! The back window on this standard squally was removed and a sleeper was installed right behind the cab. 2- 36 gallon saddle tanks. And a gooseneck tow package was installed. Along with special ordered aluminum bud rims. It is going to be fun to restore and drive. ... read more >>

1970 Chevy C10 – Cristina P.

| Tags: CB

Wishes Do Come True My name is Cristina and I live in Ontario, Canada. When I was a teenager I remembered watching a movie made in the early 90’s about life in small town Texas on the final day of the school year in the mid-70’s. The movie was “Dazed and Confused”. There were a few big named actors, still unknown at the time. There were some really cool muscle cars being driven around by the teens, including a 1971 Chevy C10! The truck was a black short box with red interior, and I was in love!! Since watching ... read more >>

I recently bought this 86. I have found a lot of things that need redone on it to bring it to its full glory.. I am having difficulty finding a place in my home town that can redo the windshield as it is broke and the top was chopped before I bought it. But I'm not going to give up on it .. I'll keep you updated

1980 Ford F100 – Drew & Elaine P.

| Tags: FD

Ford F-100 Step-side Restoration by Drew and Elaine P. This was a delivery truck in my home town in Southern Utah. It spent many years delivering goods for "Care and Share," a non-profit store that takes donations of food and clothing and distributes them to those in need. They had named her "Ol' Lizzy." After driving her for 23 years, I decided she deserved a facelift. Well, the facelift turned into a total restoration. LMC Truck made it all possible. I couldn't imagine trying to find all the parts I needed without them. It took 2 years, but boy... ... read more >>

1958 Chevy Apache – Tony B.

March 24, 2021 | Tags: CA

When I was growing up, my dad bought a 1958 Chevy Apache Fleetside Deluxe. Both my brothers and I learned to drive in it. It was basically my daily driver for most of my high school years. After I graduated, Dad had the truck sandblasted and primed with the intention of restoring it, but , unfortunately, it sat untouched in his basement for the next 35 years or so. He eventually gave the truck to me, and about 6 years ago, I began to restore it. I took the truck completely apart and did a frame off restoration. Since ... read more >>

1992 Chevy 1500 – Anita G.

| Tags: CD

T Truck In the fall of 1991 I drove my husband to Winnemucca, Nevada to pick up his new 1992 Chevy Silverado 4 wheel drive truck. Our first son Travis was 5 months old. My husband drove that truck for his gold exploration geology work until we left NV for Albuquerque. This truck was his baby until he got a new truck in 2006 when Travis was learning to drive. The truck became a teenage hunting fishing high school, college, fire department trainee, and finally Fireman transportation truck. Too many clutches caused a new engine installation. Incident in college ... read more >>

1960 Ford 100 – Jeremiah R.

| Tags: FB

A Tale of Two Trucks I've always had a desire to learn how to fix cars and do body work but I didn't know where to start. So I went to the one person I knew that had the knowledge and experience to teach me, my uncle. After talking to him and what kind of project we could start together, we decided that a short box Ford between the years of 1957-1960 would be the truck to fix. So I went on the hunt and found a 1960 F-100 short box and that's where the journey began. From there, ... read more >>

1986 GMC S150 – Brian B.

| Tags: CC

The Little Truck That Will Again! This is the beginning of my story with my 1986 GMC S15 High Sierra 4WD. I purchased her in Florida about 3 weeks ago and had her transported to my home in Rhode Island about a week ago. The minimal rust is surface only (which is the main reason why I grabbed her). Loaded with options, and the 2.8l V6, I plan on going through all mechanicals and leaving the patina finish with some clear coat on top to protect it. A 5.3l LS may be in the picture down the road, but ... read more >>

1957 Ford F100 – Rich R.

March 22, 2021 | Tags: FA

My First Rebuild 1957 F100 For decades I helped friends with their trucks, car rebuilds, tune ups and just daily drivers. In 2015 I bought a 1957 F100 with a 292 Y-Block and a flat black painted body with an interior that had seen many modifications over the years. After bringing it home I found an marketing page for a white over red F100 and said, I want to make it look like that. Well after some long hard days and the help of LMC I have it close! Love to be in it and enjoyed the experience and ... read more >>
