1985 Chevy 3/4 Ton – Hunter S.

April 19, 2021 | Tags: CC

My eleven year old son just bought his first truck. He has been saving his money and working very hard so he could buy his truck. He told me,  "Dad when I am a teenager I won't have a high paying job so I want to buy my truck now so when I can drive I won't have a truck payment. Plus I want everything done and my truck fixed up and ready to go by then." He just turned twelve last week. He also said he could have mom and dad and grandparents give him stuff for his ... read more >>

1981 GMC Sierra – Clint W.

Old School 80's Classic Rebuild by Clint I started on this project over 10 years ago. I remembered as a kid there was a older guy that had spent a lot on an late 70's square body Chevy/GM. Classic old school blower sticking from under the hood. As I got older in life the desire to have one of these trucks never went away. In fact my first pickup was a 1885 Chevy Silverado that I drove for years. So somewhere in 2009 I found a really nice short box that had been partially restored. I immediately thought this ... read more >>

1986 Dodge RamCharger – Aiden B.

| Tags: DE

My first ride, purchased a few months before I turn 16, is a 1986 Dodge RamCharger SE 150 with a 360/5.9 engine. I’m very tall for my age (6’6”) and wanted something big and unique and a RamCharger fit the bill. We found a solid, rust free truck and my Dad and I are working on it to get it in shape to be my daily driver and weekend adventure vehicle. We have a good base but it needs a lot before we get there, First up, getting running better and replacing a lot of the rubber seals, door ... read more >>

My Work Buddy I’m a handyman or maintenance person for an apartment complex out here in California. I found this lil gem tucked away in a car port . Which was an old 1975 C-10 Custom deluxe. It used to belong to another maintenance person and friend who passed. It’s my work truck. I’m going to restore it back to its former glory with some upgrades

1989 Chevy S10 – Eric H.

My 89 Chevy S10 Tahoe Bought the S10 in November 2019. It had 163k miles and I was the 3rd owner. The couple bought it from their aunt in Kentucky. Well cared for but needed a special touch to get it back to original, nothing major. Just simple repairs and cosmetics. Here's the S10 after it's paint job last month.

2002 Chevy 1500 – Tim T.

| Tags: CE

It’s a very simple story where I passed up two chances to buy this truck. It was 4 months old and I thought I needed an extended cab truck. Two months later I called the seller and he still had it. I asked about driving it. Glad I did. It had 4K miles on it and the new smell in it. This is a work truck with added packages to keep it from looking like a work truck inside and out. I’ve been driving it for 18 years. I love my truck.

1979 Ford F150 – Keith F.

| Tags: FC

When I was a kid my grandpa had a 79 ford and it was like the biggest best truck in the world to me.  So basically I'm 40 years old now and I've been through a few 79 Ford's but they all just wore out. I found a 79 and  took it to the frame and started building me a new 79. Everything is new, every bearing, every seal, and every rusty bolt. All that's left is the paint job and to do the interior. It is far from stock, I found a 429 cobra jet engine and rebuilt ... read more >>

2001 Chevy 1500 – Bernie L.

Mountain Life 01 Silverado I purchased this truck in 2005 with 33k miles on it. It has been my daily driver of sorts until until I retired in 2016. Since then I’ve been tweaking it & doing a “refresher restoration” if you will. It just turned 130k miles. We used it to travel to and from our permanent campsite in Tennessee.

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 >>
