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 >>

1964 Ford F100-Steve W.

| Tags: 2 door 57-72 blue FB

My dad bought this truck at an auction 15 years ago. He never did anything with it, it just sat in his field for over 10 years rusting away. I told him to bring it to my shop and I'll see what I can do with it. One year and $6000 later, it has been wining trophies almost every week at local car show.

1977 Ford F100-Travis M.

| Tags: 2 door 73-79 black FC

Growing up my step dad introduced me to hot rods. I had my own collection of magazines and drag racing videos. I always wanted a classic. When I was 18 I bought a later model truck and paid on that thing for 6 years. I worked hard every year to make payments. The day, I'm talking the very day I paid it off I hit ice and flipped it with my girlfriend and her friend in it. We walked away unscathed. I took it as a sign and purposed to her. She's now my beautiful wife. I bought this truck ... read more >>
