TOTM - September 2010

As my brain feels a lot, our theme this month is

A Couple Short

Let us check out the criteria or rules for those being nominated.
  • Open to all years and models of trucks, Blazers/Jimmys, Suburbans, and panels.
  • Truck must be powered by an inline 6 or V6.
  • It must be together and able to move on its own power. It does not have to be licensed for street use.
  • If a truck has been a TOTM winner during 2009 or 2010, it is ineligible for the current contest. If the truck was nominated but was 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 year of the truck, and any other specs of the truck (interior details, engine/drive train specs) that you may want to provide.

Nominees will run through August 24. The first 15 nominees that meet the criteria will participate in the contest. I will PM the nominees to get any additional data or pictures if they have not already been provided. I normally use 1 picture showing a good front-side view and 1 with a rear view of the vehicle in the voting threads. 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 in this board area and an announcement will be posted on the Discussion Boards to notify all of the voting. The Poll will start to run on August 25 and will run until the morning of September 1. The official announcement of the winner will be on the afternoon of September 1. The announcement of this month’s TOTM winner will be posted through the General Discussion Board area.

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God!

Re: TOTM - September 2010

I’ll nominate the 63 Chevy short bed of Aerotruk63. He’s built a perfect example of the most highly NOS optioned 63 on the planet:





And a video link:

Re: TOTM - September 2010

I think that belongs to N2Billet, and it has already received a much-deserved TOTM...

I believe he sold Lucy and I am not sure if Lucy's new owner is a board member.

Re: TOTM - September 2010

I'll nominate my own 68 K20 with a V6 Toroflow Diesel as the largest six banger here.

Specs: 1973 478ci GMC "Toroflow" Diesel V6 hooked to a nonsynchro 5 speed and a divorced Spicer 23. Axles are D44 and D60. Factory air, full gauges, custom interior, approx. 4" lift on 35x12.5s.

Looks rough, but is my daily driver now that my 67 Chevelle has sold.

He did sell it, and the new owner is not a member.

Re: TOTM - September 2010

I nominate Mosesburb's super-sweet Sub with a Cummins. His is the ultimate engine/drivetrain swap build in my opinion!

Here's my old beater! She's more than just a pretty face though - she's got a rip-snorting 250 with a slick shifting 3OTT!!
