Pic Thread: Me & My Truck(s) 2018

With summer gone and fall moving along into the holidays it has me looking back at what I did and where I went with my '72 this year. I was thinking it might make for an interesting thread for all to post bits about their year with their 67-72, preferably with pictures. A sort of 2018 yearbook for the year for 67-72s. It doesn't have to be chronological. Random is good. All year long there have been threads asking to see trucks hauling, trucks with this, or with that. We have posted pictures of what we are doing to our trucks, when we went somewhere in it, to show something someone needed pictures of. Here is the place to show them again in one thread encapsulating the year for 67-72chevytrucks.com

I went to some events with it, did some work with it, did some work on it, etc. They are a part of our life, so has life been with you and your truck?

I remember early in the year, still winter, there was a thread asking about covering a truck kept outside... the good/the bad. So I posted what I did for over winter outside parking

Probably (hopefully) the least interesting post I'll have. WooHoo! Pictures of a truck with a tarp!! Just showing anything goes, if it's related to your 67-72

I'll spice it up with these couple trucks that were for sale at Spring Carlisle

Re: Pic Thread: Me & My Truck(s) 2018

Protects the cab/doors, the most important and vulnerable part of the truck. Same idea as carport or garage. Puts it under cover, but just the cab. Prevents leaks from developing. Also keeps leafs and pine needles from getting in the crevices. I hope to get a carport up soon.

I picked up a cap for the '72 just before Spring Carlisle

Nice looking truck! I need to put a tarp on mine in the summer. Sat out here until the dash cracked from the heat.

Re: Pic Thread: Me & My Truck(s) 2018

I was going to post that, should have. Goes with the other info. It's lifted 4". The wheels and tires would fit w/o a lift but this gets it up off the tires sittin' healthy. I did the lift for a set of 35/12.50-16.5 BFGs with 9.75 wide aluminum slots but tires had aged out. That looked good but tires could rub up front. I would have done a 2" lift for the 285s just to give a little lift, but I'm glad it ended up being 4". 2" may not have shown much at all and 4" isn't too high

Re: Pic Thread: Me & My Truck(s) 2018

Not much interest in this idea, ey? It's the weekend, let's get this thing going. We all talk about the board isn't like it used to be, good tight community of fellow GM Truck nuts. I see what they mean. Well, I haven't given up on that. I'll be back with more, but would rather see someone else post up first. I didn't start this to be about me.

Re: Pic Thread: Me & My Truck(s) 2018

This is when I went to see it before actually pulling the trigger on it, that day it was raining, bought the truck what is called 'sigh unseen' on the bottom of it, took the sellers words on and do not regret doing so, last month took it for rust proofing and looked underneath of it, everything look brand new, got few leaks coming from engine block(original motor and transmission) have to see where it is coming from over the winter dead season.

I like that truck. Would love to find one like that. I like the steering wheel. I think they are a good alternative to the cracked OEMs. I like plenty of other older car wheels in these trucks but those are from the late end of this style truck, about the same configuration, more luxurious. They are the first 'soft' wheels are still came in colors like red, olive, saddle, and blue

That's the most I've ever seen of it. I have a hunch things are going to start moving on that. I'll look for progress pictures in the 2019 yearbook thread.

I literally bought and tossed that cap on days before Spring Carlisle. I took some pictures after cleaning things up and tinting the windows

Just got my first GMC! It's a 72 K2500 I bought out of southern Oregon. It's a little rough but in good overall condition. This is the first truck Ive had that still has rockers and cab corners intact!

This is also my first 4x4 and I am going to have a lot of questions for you Tim.

Re: Pic Thread: Me & My Truck(s) 2018

2018 was a big year for my K1500. Finished about 95% of build in Jan and took truck to "World of Wheels" in Feb at Indiana State Fairgrounds. Had never driven truck(except on driveway), so we trailered it to show. Spent most of spring and summer trying to finish remaining 5% of build and cure some lagging issues. Only was able to drive truck about 500 miles in 2018. In Sept., I took truck to 4WD Jamboree in Indy. Jamboree was fun, but my K1500 looked like a toy or toddler compared to the lifted beasts at this show. However, the K1500 was very well received and everyone seems to have a story about this era of truck.

Re: Pic Thread: Me & My Truck(s) 2018

I did a few things to my truck this year. The big one was removing the plaid bench seat then installing ( not quite finished yet ) my buckets/console. Next the tilt I bought 18 months ago was installed and I picked up this totally rebuit 700R4 which plan to get installed this coming spring. There is a big local Car show here every June and the first door prize is a completely rebuilt with upgrades Chevy small block and the second was this 700R4 redone by a local reputable shop. The winner of the 700R4 didnt need it so he put it on Facebook for sale and i bought it. I have factory 373's in my truck so the 700R4Name:  IMG_5225.jpg

Re: Pic Thread: Me & My Truck(s) 2018

Tim, I like the shell on your truck. Iíve been keeping an eye out for one for the 72.
I parked the 72 in my shop a few weeks ago. Pulled it out today worried about pack rats. I used it to take my step son to baseball practice and games this summer. Drove it down to the local car show in September. I didnít enter the truck. Mostly just drive it in to town for errands. Just 2 miles to town. Iíve had it for sell and a guy got real close to my price a couple months ago. A friend of mine says ďthereís always another one out thereĒ. I think that it may not be so anymore. But, what do I know?
