As a kid, I was raised working on cars and truck. Spent many days under a hood, under a car, working or handing tools to my Dad. Working on cars with my friends became a passion for most of us. I joined the Navy in 1985, traveled, moved, got married, raised a family in my 24 year career, always saying that some day I'll have another car or truck that I can work on, make it mine and drive it to shows, or just a cruise with my wife sitting next to me. Once I retired from the military, ... read more >>

Growing up, my Dad always had a truck. I was a truck guy before I could walk. As I got older, I really started to fall in love with the old school Ford's of the 1970's. It started with all my Big Foot monster trucks. This set up a dream-come-true opportunity for me. It all started three years ago, as I was heading to work. I could see an old truck for sale on the side of the road up ahead. It just kept getting cooler, the closer I got. It was a 70's Ford and I had to ... read more >>

I am the 3rd owner of this great truck. It came from California and ended up in Washington when I purchased it. When I got the truck it had 4 flat tires and needed every bit of TLC I could give it. The person I bought it from was going to build a mud bogg truck and I was able to save it from being cut up. The 350 motor has been rebuilt with a mild cam. I installed a new TH350 transmission and rebuilt the NP205 transfer case and added a twin stick 4wd system. I went through ... read more >>

Purchased brand new in 1979. Within the last few years, I've upgraded to a 4 barrel intake with custom exhaust, everything else is original. Always used as a work truck but not as much these days. Favorite time spent is behind the wheel, driving over into the country near my ole homeplace, traveling along the dirt roads, revisiting memory lane, and stopping to visit for a spell with some family and friends reminiscing about the good ole days. Also enjoy driving with my granddaughter and great-granddaughter in the cab with our fishing poles in the back. It's been a ... read more >>

This truck is a 1983 Chevy K10 with a 350 small block. My grandad bought this new in 1983 and used it for many years as a work truck and farm truck. Besides the many dents and lots of rock chips it was still a solid old truck. I’m 1993 he gave it to my dad, and my dad decided he would restore the truck. All new fenders, bedsides, tailgate. The only thing original is the cab. In 1996 he got rid of the truck and never saw it again. When I was smaller I had always seen pictures ... read more >>

My 1982 Ford F-100 was given to me by my father. He bought the truck brand new in 1982. After having a few health issues he was unable to drive any more. So after sitting for several years the truck had a lot of work that needed to be done. The original color was red and maroon with black interior. This restoration took me nine years. It could have never gotten done without LMC. From lights to bumpers to steering wheels to mirrors and handles, LMC had everything I needed. Thanks LMC for helping me restore my father's truck! ... read more >>

Bought this truck a year ago and my son and I have been restoring it for his first truck. We started the restoration in July 2017 and he turned 16 just a few weeks ago. It was a good truck to start with, but like all 80s trucks that have been driven, it needed some lovin. Lots of cutting, welding, and body work but it was well worth it. LMC was awesome for this project. They had everything we needed to restore this truck. New front fenders, rocker panels, floor panels, carpet, and all interior accessories. A coat of ... read more >>

This truck was purchased new by my dad in the fall of 1989. Custom ordered and his first Ford. Being a self-employed sign painter and pinstriper, naturally the truck was used as his advertisement. The hand-done pinstriping was done down the sides, bug deflector, and tailgate. A bed cap was installed and lettered. The hubcaps were replaced with Alcoa stainless simulators. In 1992 with a 4th child on the way, his beloved captain's chairs and center console were removed in place of custom seats with a drop-down center seat. Other than that, the truck remained fairly stock and meticulously ... read more >>

Mine is kind of an unusual story. Back in 2000, I saw this truck while visiting my son, Wes, in Indiana. It was for sale, but just a little more than I could afford at that time. About 8 months later I received a call from my son, he asked if I had the phone number of the fellow in Muncie, Indiana, that had the Lil' Red for sale. I told him, the truck is probably sold by now, but he insisted that he should check to find out. A few days later, I called him to find out ... read more >>

After reaquainting myself with your parts catalog and seeing the features of customer's trucks, I felt my recent redo was worthy of sharing. My husband was restoring this truck when we married. He enjoyed playing with it, so to speak, and I enjoyed doing the car show events with it, but I finally convinced him his playing was hard on the paint and the engine if you know what I mean. So we stuck to more of the showing. We had a standing policy each birthday or anniversary we would give each other at least one thing that was ... read more >>

1987 GMC High Sierra – Tyler T.

September 10, 2018 | Tags:

    I always wanted a truck. In fact, a squarebody GMC since I was a young. Came across the opportunity to get one, and he was looking for a trade or $2000 cash, so I asked if he'd trade for my quad and it worked out. The truck looked like a rust bucket but I knew it had potential and had all the tools to build it on the farm. My dad did a lot of body work and painting when he was younger so it turned out to be like a father /son project, which was awesome. I got ... read more >>

    I owned a small tool and die shop, “Liberty Machine and Tool,” and we were in business for twenty years. In 2013 I bought a 1968 F-100 and started to restore it but an electrical fire destroyed everything. The truck was in a part of the building that didn’t get too hot so I decided to go ahead with it. I took it apart to the last nut and bolt and sandblasted it down to bare metal then built it back from the ground up. The motor is a 390 bored and stroked to a 443, with 650 hp ... read more >>
