1960 Chevy Apache – Brandon F.

July 29, 2021

In April 2015, my grandfather gave me his 1960 Chevy Apache from Arkansas and hauled it back to Maine.  He gave it to me when I graduated.  I have been restoring it since 2015-2021. Disc breaks, brand new wire harness, brand new front and rear suspension, built 406 small block Chevy.  It would be an honor to have it on the cover of LMC.  You guys helped me put this truck back on the road.  Thank you.

1986 Chevy C10 – Jesse J.

July 27, 2021

Project 383 - Joslin Racing This truck was heading to the scrap yard.  Thankfully I was able to save it.  It's now a project truck in memory of my late grandfather.  I call it Project 383 because a nice 383 will be in place of the old blown 305 with factory a/c and cruise.  Once done it will be painted a midnight purple.  And all of my parts will be coming from LMC.  They have everything I need to bring this truck back to life.

1969 GMC Suburban – Mark S.

July 26, 2021

Atomic Suburban This 3/4 ton, 4 speed, 4x4 GMC Suburban was 1 of 10 special orders by Atomic Energy of Canada in 1969. It was used to collect samples from the bush around the Atomic Energy plant in Pinawa, Manitoba, Canada. These samples were then tested for radiation and it held this role until the 1990's when it was sold to a civilian. The Suburban was ordered in a fleet yellow that is unlike any other GM yellow and another unique option is code 9939AA "additional electric horns", which presumably were to scare off bears and moose while driving ... read more >>

2003 Chevy S10 – Roger S.

2003 S-10 Xtreme My truck was bought by my son when it was about 2 years old. It was an original Xtreme. He was in the Marine Corp. so when it was wrecked he did not have the money to fix it the correct way. I bought it in 2014 from his girlfriend. In 2018 a deer jumped from a hill and destroyed the roof and front end so I had it repaired back as an Xtreme. I love the truck and put air bags in the rear so I can haul things in it. When I’m not hauling ... read more >>

1966 Chevy K10 – Dennis R.

July 22, 2021

Short Fleet 4x4 Purchased in California 30 years ago, recently restored and original. Chevrolet estimates there were approximately twenty trucks ordered with these options (short fleet, big window, 4x4, V-8). All good things come to an end... soon to be for sale!

1982 GMC C3500 – George M.

July 21, 2021

I bought this 1982 GMC C3500 165.5" chassis cab for $500. It came with a broken 6.2 diesel and an SM465 4 speed transmission. I put a 350 gas engine in it and drove it for a few years until I wanted to do something different. I ended up converting it to 4wd and added a 12 valve Cummins from a 1995 Dodge 2500 followed by an NV4500 5 speed, NP205 transfer case, and a Dana 60 front axle. The conversion took about 3 years, but it still is a work in progress. I put it on the road ... read more >>

1960 Chevrolet C10 – Wade M.

This is a 4th generation truck.  I remember riding in it as young child.  My dad had it somewhat fixed up for his dad.  My grandpa had the truck for approximately 15 years.  When grandpa was diagnosed with cancer, he return the truck to my dad.  Afterwards, it sat in the pasture for approximately 10 years.  When my oldest son was 14 1/2 years old, he asked my dad if he could have the old truck.  My dad told him he was welcome to have the truck, as long as he (we) would fixed it up and drive it.  ... read more >>

1978 Ford F100 – Donald H.

July 20, 2021

Thank You LMC! In 1978, I bought a new Ford F-100 in order to move to the Lake Tahoe area in order to build my home. It became my work truck for the next 40 years in the construction industry. When I retired so did my trusty ‘work truck’. About that time I came across a LMC truck catalog and I decided then that I need a retirement project. My beat up work truck became my hobby. Over the years with some great help from LMC, my old truck became my pride and joy. It gets tons of compliments ... read more >>

1988 Chevy Silverado – Michael M.

July 16, 2021

I purchased a used 1988 Chevy Silverado 22 years ago. When I bought the truck, it was in fairly good condition but over the course of time things needed to be done, both mechanically and cosmetically.  About 8 years ago I had it painted.  The shop that we chose did a really good job.  The truck has always been a “work truck” so I had the bed of the truck Arnold Coated.  This was not only for protection of the bed, it also took away that “tin can” sound.  It looked great.  I retired in 2016 and that’s when the ... read more >>

1986 Chevy 1500 – Arthur C.

Not Your Typical Truck So I was in the market for a vehicle and lately I've been noticing a lot more people driving Teslas at work. So I thought to myself, should I buy a tesla? Its gas efficient, and doesn't make any noise and looks futuristic in a way, and would make it seem like I care about the planet. But then I thought to myself, "does this really represent who I am?" The answer to that question is heck no. I don't like reading books, drinking coffee for leisure, or listening to soft rock music. I like ... read more >>
