To get us motivated for our first Truck of the Month (ToTM) contest in 2018, our theme is:


Here is the criteria for this month’s contest.
  • Open to all years and models of Trucks, Blazers, Suburbans, Tahoes, Yukons, and Jimmys.
  • It must be powered by a gasoline powered GM Big Blocks. This not only includes our loveable Chevy big block, but those by Caddy, Olds, Buick, and Pontiac.
  • The nominee must be a board member and the current owner of the truck.
  • The must be together and able to move on its own power.
  • If a truck was selected as a 2017 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 and one of the engine. In addition, we will need the owner’s board name and the Make/Model/Year of vehicle.

Nominations will run through January 24. 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 January 25 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 February 1 and the official announcement of the winner will be on the evening of February 1. The announcement of the TOTM winner will be posted through the General Discussion Board area.

Re: February 2018 ToTM

I want to nominate my son Chad's 1969 big block C10 for TOTM. Chad's forum name is CC69Rat. Sorry, but these are the only photos I have but as soon as the snow melts here in Tennessee I will get some better ones. This has been a 7 year father-son frame off restoration that was finished in December.

Re: February 2018 ToTM

Okay, since the theme this month is BIG, I am submitting my 72 Chev enclosed car hauler. It is powered by a fuel injected 454, 4L80E trans, goes down the road great. It has an 18 1/2 ft. box, winch,and based on a later chassis. Here are a few pics of it working and not working. We have used it for many things, but primarily to haul our 40 Ford gasser.
