1968 Chevy K20 – Luke S.

May 17, 2015

Greetings fellow truck lovers, I have been a total addict for anything with 4 wheels for as long as I can remember! I grew up riding in my grandfathers 1969 C10(which I still have). I also spent time with my other grandfather who was a big Dodge fan and I have his 1968 D100 shortbed. I was blessed to have learned from many things from very talented and wise relatives. The only unfortunate part is that I am the only one in the family to be passionate about car and truck collecting! So, ever since I got my first car(1968 ... read more >>

1968 GMC C15 – Dustin W.

May 16, 2015 | Tags: Canada Orange

My grandfather was the original owner of this truck. He bought it mostly to use on his dairy farm and to pick up supplies in the city. Apparently, my two uncles used to use it as a Saturday night cruiser and apparently that old 307 v8 and 3 on the tree standard tranny was an awesome stop light drag racing combo. My grandfather always wondered why the back tires seemed to wear out faster than the front tires but had his suspicions. Well, the Canadian winters are hard on vehicles that get driven year round and eventually the original box ... read more >>

My 1957 Chevy truck has been my dream truck since I was 7 years old. Now 20 years old I have 2 of them and are currently building both of them

1957 Chevy-Del B.

| Tags: 1957 3100 57

Grandpa bought it new. It was purchased to work, and used on the farm for many years. When Grandpa left the farm, he gave me the pickup. When I asked him if he expected me to restore it, he said,"No, you can drive the damn thing off of a cliff if you want to". I chose to not do that. It's not very pretty, and unfortunately it has lost even more paint having sat outside for quite a few years, but I love the patina, and the fact that it is a totally unrestored original survivor. So do lots of ... read more >>

1954 Chevy-Joe C.

| Tags: 1954 3100 54 blue

I restored my truck 25 years ago and was forced to sell it as my former better half insisted I had too many toys and she wanted me to downsize my collection. I drove it down to a local Jeep dealership to find her a new car and the owner asked if I would be willing to trade my truck, 1 for 1, for a new wrangler 2 door jeep. I did...sure it was a great deal....but I have been kicking myself ever since. Three weeks ago and 25 years after I restored it, I decided to look online and ... read more >>

1981 GMC C1500 – Kolten C.

May 14, 2015 | Tags: CC

This is my 1981 GMC C1500. It was originally given to me by my grandpa who was about to have it scrapped. I was fifteen then and had no idea what I was doing. Over this last year and a half, I've done all the bodywork, paint, engine work, and so much more to get this thing back on the road. I'm sixteen now and here she is. It's been a ton of fun and a HUGE learning experience, but I've learned a lot more than just how to fix up a truck. I decided to share it with ... read more >>

1990 Chevy Silverado – Wayne F.

May 13, 2015 | Tags: CD

I recently sold my 1999 Tahoe which was used in the winter Tahoe catalog.   Business changes lead me to need a truck again.  After a month long search I found this 1990 Chevy Silverado K1500 at a dealership were it was a trade in. The truck had 127,000 miles and had 1 previous owner. I started with a cooling system overhaul, brakes, rear axle, shocks and more. Then I placed my initial LMC order for this truck. This included wheels, step bars, headlamp relay kit and more. This was followed by several more orders including carpet, instrument cluster lens, ... read more >>

1997 Ford F250-Logan R.

May 12, 2015 | Tags: 1997 4 door 97 Powerstroke white

This truck started out as just a regular old farm truck ( it still has its scratches and dings). It wasn't really used much except for hauling and small jobs. The first things I got for it were an exhaust delete, a TS 6 position chip to get a bit more power out of the 7.3, and lots of cleaning up inside and out. The next step to its look was leveling out the truck. After unsuccessfully and constantly looking for a TTB lift for the front of the truck it finally came down to getting a kit custom built ... read more >>
