Clint Marlow

F150 XLT

Year: 1990

Special Modifications: None! 5.0 V8, Auto, Air Conditioning, Power windows and locks, Cruise Control. All the options 1990 had to offer! And it only has 51K miles!

Tell Us Your Story! Not much to look at from a paint perspective but the body is straight and rust free. A bit of a time capsule when you enter the interior with the bright red velour interior. It’s a blast to drive and looks just great next to my 2015  F150 and 2019 Super Duty.

Chris Shepherd

Ford Bronco

Year: 1971

Special Modifications: 4 inches of lift (2.5 inch suspension, 2 in body lift), converted manual brakes to power

Tell Us Your Story! My wife and father-in-law (now passed) bought this Bronco for me for my 40th birthday… At that time in my career, I just left my corporate job of 20 years to become a high school teacher. It was a lonely time as I left all of my friends and contacts. My wife felt having a garage project would be good – therapeutic :), she was right….I love working on this Bronco.

Rick Laino

Tell Us Your Story! Truck was a farm vehicle in France and shipped to United States – totally restored during COVID / all work done by myself except for painting done by professional!

Hector Briones

Chevrolet Avalanche

Year: 2005

Brand of Paint: PPG       Special Modifications: Air ride (lays frame), Ls2 (motor swap), Interior redone, 28″ savini forged 3 piece wheels (triple chrome plated), Full sound system

Bought the truck as a daily driver and was my first truck to own, until one day my wife drove it and got in a bad accident which needed a bed side replacement and seeing it cut up I never had the same vision for it again lol, so I decided to chop it up from frame to metal fabrication which was all done by John Ward to clear 28″ wheels and lay all the way to the ground and still function as a daily driver if wanted along with a/c woot woot, and then came interior,engine, and paint which now looks like a totally different truck! I’m happy with it and for sure a head turner, took alot of weeknights and weekends to get it to this point but now looking back it was a fun journey.
