The journey with my 72 C-10 Chevy Pickup started in 1977 when I purchased the truck from my Dad. I had 2 small girls then, and spent the next few years hauling them and our dog around in the back. At the time, the truck was my main transportation, and I always enjoyed driving it. Through the years, I painted the truck and rebuilt the engine. Now, I have grandkids, and enjoy hauling them around. They ask me, Papa why are people staring at us. I say, honey it’s just the truck. Everyone loves a well kept old Chevy Pickup. ... read more >>

This truck was originally purchased by my father in 1988 and eventually passed down to me in 1998 to drive in high school. It was used as a run-around truck for many years after I went off to college and the truck stayed home. I started the complete frame-up rebuild in 2013 and I couldn’t be more pleased with my final result.

I am original owner of this 1976 Chevy pickup. I ordered this bicentennial 3/4 ton Chevy 20 new from the dealership as a chassis cab. Two weeks later I cut 5 1/2" out of the middle and 5 inches of the rear and installed a great used short box. It has factory bucket seats and sliding rear window. With 38 inch tires I used the truck for construction for 20 plus years. I stored it for 12 years then I decided either sell it or fix it up. So I decided to do a frame off restoration. I restored both ... read more >>

2012 Dodge Ram Big Horn- Chris S.

My previous three trucks were Chevys, this is my first Dodge Ram. It is by far my favorite. I'm the second owner, its life as a work truck is over. From this point it will be my 5,200 lbs. Hot rod.. my style of customization is "it looks like it came that way from the factory even though obviously it's been modified.." I get a lot of compliments about it, you'd never know it's never garaged.

This jewel has been in our family for 3 generations. My grandpa bought it in 1972 brand new, he drove it approx. 100,000 miles before he passed away. It had an a/c vent break so my grandpa used a hair roller for an ac vent. Very clever. It's still that way today. Then my dad (Charles Byler) got it and named it gentle Ben (my grandpa's nickname) he was 6'3 gentle giant. Approx 25 years ago is when my dad got it and it has been a restore project ever since. My dad passed away 1 year ago and now ... read more >>

Bought my truck 3 years ago for $2200 from an elderly man, which was the original owner of the blazer. Its a one owner truck with only 66,542 miles on it when I purchased it. I brought it home, drove it for 2 months and then tore it all the way down to the frame and started a full restoration job. Everything from front to back top to bottom is brand new!! I have already owned 3 square body blazer and 2 square body s10 extended cabs, and have worked on vehicles most of my life. But my father Carlos ... read more >>

Uncle Charley's old truck sat in the garage 20 yrs. After he passed, Aunt Judy decided to part with it and gave it to me. I dragged it home with towbar since it had no brakes. It started with a lot of starter fluid to my surprise, old 283 sb. It took 2yrs to restore frame off, sandblasted frame and body, transplant a new all aluminum ls 5.3 with gm hot cam, custom intake, headers, 400th transmission, new np205 transfer case, rebuilt front and rear differentials, 4 wheel disc brakes with hydaboost, vintage air, Dakota gauges, Cheyenne interior, step side ... read more >>

From an early age I always loved old Ford trucks, my dad had one and I knew I had to have one. When I was in high school my dad purchased me a 1979 Bronco that I still have. I learned a lot working on that bronco in high school and became a mechanic. Now with the skills and funding to build my truck I always wanted, started with a cab and frame off of Craigslist and parts from other pickups and Broncos. First time painting and body work, learned a lot and made plenty of mistakes. It took many ... read more >>

I bought this truck when I was 15 with the money I earned at my summer job. I drove it all through high school and kept putting money into it to make it exactly like I had dreamed of it. My dad and worked on it to fix the minor problems the last owner had neglected. I have fixed almost all of the rust and done other upgrades along the way. It is still currently my daily driver, but I plan on eventually getting historical plates on it after it is 25 years old. It might look a lot like ... read more >>
