April 2019 ToTM

Our April 2019 Truck of the Month (TOTM) contest theme is:

Beat it to Fit, Try & Paint it to Match

Play on some words as usual, but the theme for this month’s contest is those vehicles that are sooooo far from show or nice. Rust and dust maybe their dominant feature. Here’s the criteria for this month’s contest.
  • Open to all years and models of Trucks, Blazers, Suburbans, Tahoes, Yukons, and Jimmys.
  • The vehicle nominated needs to belong to a board member during the time of the contest.
  • It must be road worthy and currently legal (until the cops catch you) to be on the road.
  • It must have an unmatching paint scheme (no all primers)
  • It must have at least three other distinctly viewable issues. This includes things like:
    o Missing panels
    o Dents and Holes (large and small)
    o Dominate rust formations (not patina)
    o Anything that might make someone afraid to go near it for fear of catching some sort of disease
  • If a truck was selected as a 2018 or 2019 TOTM winner, then you are ineligible. If the truck was nominated but not selected as a TOTM winner, then it may be nominated and compete in this month's category.

To Nominate:

You or someone else may nominate the vehicle. The nominee must be a board member and the current owner of the truck. Once you decide on who you wish to nominate, just add your nomination to this thread. We will need two pictures minimum (at least one full view of the vehicle) with/for the nomination as well as the owner’s board name, the Make/Model/Year of vehicle.

Nominations will run through March 23. The first 15 nominees that meet the criteria will participate in the contest We will need two pictures minimum (at least one full view of the vehicle) with/for the nomination as well as the owner’s board name, the Make/Model/Year of vehicle. I will PM the nominees to get any additional data or pictures if they have not already been provided. If the owner has a preferred picture they want used in the contest, please let me know in a PM. You can PM me for an e-mail address in case anyone has problems resizing the pictures for the board. A Poll Thread will be set up by March 24 in this board area and an announcement will be posted on the Discussion Boards to notify all that voting has begun. The Poll will run thru the morning of April 1 and the official announcement of the winner will be on the evening of April 1. The announcement of the TOTM winner will be posted through the General Discussion Board area.

Re: April 2019 ToTM

This one is right up my alley!

My 63 named Frankentruck
283 small block, Quadrajet carb, 3 speed with OD

Yes, the top of the windshield is sealed with duct tape on the outside and inside. The inside tape keeps rust from falling on my feet

Re: April 2019 ToTM

Three years later I've fixed a couple things , shock brackets http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...d.php?t=763851 and a shifter http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...d.php?t=767127 , I did replace the cracked w/shield. But not much visually , other than wheels repainted and new spinners . Still a lot to do .

Re: April 2019 ToTM

My 72 Blazer. I think I barely meet the criteria. But if you look you will see some of the orginal white paint, and the green door and fender on the passenger side showing. Plus plenty of rust and a missing rocker panel.

Re: April 2019 ToTM

Since after almost 10 years she’s finally roadworthy, I’ll submit my ‘67 C-30 dually.
