Like so many others, I set out on a quest to buy back a truck like my first truck, a '72 Chevy. I bought my original '72 from my first cousin. He brought my aunt to visit my mom and when he pulled up in the drive in that black '72 I immediately loved it. Even though I was only 15 at the time and had no money or even my driver's license for that matter, I told him to please call me when he was ready to sell it. About a year and half later he called and ... read more >>

My family has been in the used auto parts business for over 35 years, buying core engines and transmissions for the rebuilding industry. So let’s just say it was in my blood to have a 350 engine one day. This truck was bought by my Uncle Joe about 10 years ago in Daytona, Florida, where he spent his winters after retiring from the family business that he once owned. During those 10 years he tinkered with this truck every winter. 90% of the truck was redone from top to bottom. During the summer months when he would come home ... read more >>

1977 GMC Sierra Grande C15 – Bane N.

Truck was originally purchased by my Grandfather back in 77. My dad inherited the truck a few years back and drove it from California to Alabama. Made it all the way with no issues other than a clogged cat and new tires during the trip. My dad had it repainted, keeping the original colors. I inherited the GMC about 9 months ago after my dad passed. The truck is really in great shape overall and runs well. I have plans to do a few things but plan to keep it original for the most part. Since I started driving ... read more >>

This truck is all original like it came off the line in 1955. It is fully restored with a 3 on the tree transmission. The truck has been in the family for over 50 years. My dad  bought this truck from a buddy in the 70's. He used it as his work truck and then he used it to haul coal and wood to keep us warm in the winter time. My parents would take it to the local IGA to pick up groceries. In the mid-90's he had it restored by a friend that did restoration in a ... read more >>

Ever since I was 8 years old when I visited my grandma with my dad, I looked forward to getting to take country drives with him down dirt roads in the "Missouri Truck." Even as a young boy I knew I wanted to keep that truck in my family and restore it to an even better state than when it rolled off the assembly line in 1965. My great-grandpa Allen purchased two vehicles brand new in his lifetime, a 1920 Model T Roadster, and a 1965 Chevrolet C10 fleetside short bed in Shelbina, MO. The "Missouri Truck" has done ... read more >>

1968 Chevy C10 – Chris D.

July 13, 2018 | Tags:

    My truck story begins in 1994 when my buddy Bob returned from technical school in Arizona with his 1972 Chevy C10 Super Cheyenne. It was gorgeous, loud and fast with a green and white color scheme, sporting a 400cid, flowmaster 50 series mufflers and an oak bed floor. I was in love. Although at that time my sights were set on going to college so I didn't have time or money to pursue something like that at that moment. The next summer I located a 1969 Firebird and purchased that but wasn't happy overall with that platform. It mostly ... read more >>

    My truck story began when a good friend of mine asked me if I’d like to purchase his great-grandfather's 1984 F-150 that his grandfather passed down to him when he died. I knew it was a fixer upper when I bought her but I knew in the long run it’d be worth all of it. When I bought the truck it was overheating, skipping, shifting very hard, and only ran on 4 cylinders! So three months down the road after shaving the head, getting a new carburetor, new radiator, dual headers and dual exhaust with thrush mufflers, she is ... read more >>

    Cream Puff, the 1977 Ford F-150, joined the Wilson family from an Asheville, NC, Food Lion. Matt, my father, passed the all original farm truck sitting in the grocer parking lot thinking it would be irrational to buy it. To ease his mind, he told himself he would return later the next day, and only then he permitted himself to look at it. The next day, I saw my parents returning from the store with my father driving the truck and I instantly fell in love with it. Not long after the purchase, my father found a new job ... read more >>

    My father and I have always been motor-heads and he has taught me everything I know about vehicles. He and I built a 1969 Chevelle a couple years back. In 2012 I turned 14 years old and that's when my father started talking to me about what vehicle I wanted to drive when I turned 16. Naturally, I started looking online as soon as he said that- this was my chance to find exactly what I wanted. My father was also sure to tell me that if I wanted to build something we could do that, too. I would ... read more >>

    I purchased this truck in August 2017 with 13,643 actual miles. It has the 351M and auto transmission with power steering and has the Explorer package. The original owner passed away in 1985 and the truck has been stored inside since. A friend of mine, a strong GM guy, and his wife bought it in 2003. He repaired the brakes but she was not comfortable with the thought of driving it, so he parked it without ever putting it on the road. It took me four years of prodding to persuade them to sell it. It has the original ... read more >>

    1964 Ford F-100 – Jim M.

      I was driving down the road 21 years ago and spotted this 1964 Ford pickup. To me it looked like an orphan needing a home. So I checked on it and closed the deal. It was the last year I was single and I married my high school sweetheart in 1965. So it has a lot of memories for us. With the help of a few friends and LMC we put it back on the road. Now I have two long time girls in my life. Thanks to LMC it's fun driving again.

      My 1967 Chevy Truck Story When I was 16 my first car was a 1967 CST cab large window short bed C10 fleet side. With straight 6, and 3 on the tree. I turned 16 in April 1985, and we purchased the truck for $250.00. I had saved up $220.00 and my mom helped me with the rest. A great family friend, Doug Donaldson, brought it to his house and said, " you aren't driving it until we paint it." I spent the entire summer sanding it. Doug brought it and me to a frame shop in Reno, Nevada, ... read more >>
