This 1982 Gmc was bought by used in 1986 by my father-in-law. He sold it in 1995 to his sister and brother-in-law for a farm truck. It worked great until the tranny gave out and they parked it in a bush. In 2012 I resurrected it off the farm and parked beside the garage. 6 years later, over Christmas I pulled it into the shop and got the motor running, pulled the tranny out and have begun restoring it.

I bought my truck for 300 dollars. It was not running when I got it. I had to fix the fuel line problem and it ran till it overheated twice heading to work.I put new head gaskets on it then it ran well till it over-heated the third time. Then I put new head gaskets on it and it was smoking pretty bad- oil blow. By then I just rebuilt the engine and got it back in my truck. I went from EFI to Carb setup and I'm loving it all and it's my project truck to work on. I ... read more >>

Father and son project with help of a few good friends. I originally bought it from my aunt. My dad painted it for her way back in the 80's when she had it. It took roughly 6 years on and off and still buying parts from LMC to improve the truck. First time I drove it since it was close to being finished was to graduation. Full restoration from frame up.

I found this truck at a car show swap meet in 2016. It was all basically original including the drive train. It had the 350 cu inch motor, Turbo 350 and 411 gears. I figured it was due for an upgrade. It did get partially done when it was rear ended. Just my luck! At that point in time I decided to do a complete do-over from bumper-to-bumper. My goal was to keep it almost stock looking. The truck was completely dismantled. Mario from Novelli's Customs did a fantastic job on the body work, replacing all sheet metal damage (no ... read more >>

“My Truck Story” My story is kind of a “Ranger XLT” story as well as a “LMC” truck story. The year was 1972 when I was in the Air Force at Albuquerque, my good friend bought a new Black Ranger XLT and I thought that was the most beautiful truck. Of course I couldn’t afford one so I did buy a used 1968 Ford “Custom Cab” Truck. Later on I decided that if I couldn’t buy a Ranger XLT, I decided just to build one. I like to restore things so I began working. Over the next four years ... read more >>

Here my 69 f100 with a 302, still under construction project. I also have 77 and 79 pickups. But my 69 is my favorite one. My father taught me a lot about old Fords because that’s all my grandfather drove in Mexico while farming. I have a 4 month old son and hopefully when he turns 15 I’ll be giving him my 69 already fully built with lmc parts.
