February 2013 TOTM

For our first 2013 Truck of the Month (TOTM) contest the theme is:.

It’s Cold Outside, So Come On In

Our theme is about the truck with the nicest interior, stock, custom or anywhere in-between.

Let us check out the criteria or rules for those being nominated.
  • Open to all years and models of trucks, Blazers/Jimmys, Suburbans, Tahoes/Yukons, and panels.
  • It must be together and able to move on its own power.
  • If a truck was selected as a 2012 TOTM winner then you are ineligible. If you were nominated but were not selected as a TOTM winner then you 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 at least one picture of the interior and one full outside view of the nominee's vehicle, as well as the owner’s board name, and make/Model/Year of vehicle.

Nominees will run through January 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. 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 afternoon of February 1. The announcement of the TOTM winner will be posted through the General Discussion Board area.

Re: February 2013 TOTM

Well, my truck doesn't hold a candle to many of these customs.

And, except for the sweat and $$$$ I've put in on my one-man build, I wouldn't even think about entering my RAT1968 baby in anything...
....Except I thought those folks that are working by themselves on one-man garage builds might like to see her.

She's not stock. And not a big-time custom. But I'm proud of the outcome of the three years I've put in (so far).

Re: February 2013 TOTM

Wow, hard choices, I've got to aim higher! I couldn't help but be reminded of Evil Trailblazer SS's truck - Excellent work in the "factory plus" theme. I don't have pics, but it deserves to be here.

Re: February 2013 TOTM

So BRUISER asked me via PM to post pics of my resto and get in on TOTM! thanks for the vote of confidence!

Here it goes...it started life as this



And I've slowly but surely been working and molding it into what you see below! Mind you, the body work and paint isn't done yet, but EVERYTHIG ELSE is done...



















The truck is done with it's 4L80E (2005 core with shot peened hard parts and 5 pinion planets, full Sonnax treatment and Alto/Kolene soft parts) swap, headers and full 2.5" exhaust, Gen V cast valve covers, lots of suspension and steering parts, 2004 Corporate 14 with big pinion bearing, HD Ribbed housing and Eaton LS, and tons of other goodies I'm missing...it's such a long project I sometimes lose track of what I've already done! All lighting is LED throughout the truck, TONS of NOS interior parts, etc. etc.
