1971 Chevy C10 – All in the family I purchased this 1971 Chevy C10 when my sons and nephew were in high school. Shortly after purchasing the truck, we decided to restore it as a family project. We pulled the truck into my shop where we completely disassembled it down to the frame. The truck was originally a long bed, but we wanted to convert it to a short bed. I purchased a short bed 1967 GMC parts truck to utilize for the conversion. We completely rebuilt the front suspension and drive line from the 1971 and transferred it ... read more >>

    I am the second owner of this truck, purchased from my father in law in the early 80’s. Was purchased as a Camper Special and in 1983 I restored it from the ground up, as close to back to stock as was possible. Removed 2 of the 3 gas tanks, the tow bumper, and replaced split rims to one piece wheels. Has original working AM radio and original 350 engine with 148k miles. My kids drove it to high school pre restoration and my granddaughter will drive it to high school in a few years. It’s all steel and ... read more >>

    This truck has caused me lots of stress. I saved this Dakota off of a scrap trailer heading for its doom. Had a blown tranny and what I thought only had a couple little things wrong. I paid the 500$ for it and got to work right away. To start off it needed a whole new front end. Then I scooped out a transmission from a 5.9. The first year was very rough. The first mechanic scammed me so did the 2nd and 3rd that’s when I finally went back to my friends shop. The second mechanic did my ... read more >>

    I bought my 1986 Suburban new in September of 1985, yes it is a one owner vehicle. It has a 454 big block and a turbo 400 transmission. 86 was the last year for no catalytic converters. In the early 1990s I installed headers and a mild RV cam. I also updated the core support and the grill to a 1991. We use it mostly to tow our boat to local lakes and camping trips on vacations. In 2011 the factory had to be redone and after that I decided to replace some of the parts that were wearing ... read more >>

    My brother bought this truck from the original owner in the late 90’s and didn’t do much to it but drive it until he sold it to my son in 2006. It is an XLT Lariat with AC, PW, PL, PS, PB and cruise. Original AM/FM Cassette. All in working condition. We did a slow roll resto on it for several years. New interior, paint and engine were the major stuff. Added an Edelbrock intake, Holley 4 bbl, mild cam and Hooker headers along with a new stainless exhaust when replacing the engine. Its been a labor of love ... read more >>

    I would like to show you my 1995 Chevy S10 which I bought five years ago. The person I bought it from was trying to make it into a rat rod. I took this truck apart and did all the body and frame work. I had the truck painted 1964 Palomino Maroon with a metal flake green roof. Her name is "Simple." I did all the interior. It's in great shape. The best part about it is that I did all the work curbside in front of my house in the street, since I don't have a garage I ... read more >>

    My grandfather bought this truck from the original owner in 1984 less than a year after it was bought from the lot new. It had Texas plates the whole time he owned it. I grew up with him in this truck, many many fishing trips. It's been in the family for 34 years. He drove it until his death in 2006 and then my aunt "purchased" it from my grandmother as a way to help her financially. Fast forward to 2015 and my aunt uncle had then preserved the truck and stored it until 2 weeks ago when I ... read more >>

    Picked this truck up to be my pool service truck/mobile detailing rig. Bought it with over 200k on it (currently 280k & runs like a sewing machine) wont do a burnout to save its life but it cruises like a cadillac. Killer Rockford sound system. Paint/body is in excellent shape. The trucks bed has helped me earn over 6 figures in its tenure, so its more than paid for itself.
