1972 C10 Restoration - Sharp Cheyenne

The 1967 through 1972 C10 pickup is a truly classic design. Its strong edges were a notable departure from the sculpted curves of the 1960-66 models, but it still wasn't quite as squared-off as the 1973-87 pickups which followed it. This is one reason why the '67-'72 Chevy trucks have remained popular for so many years. The yellow and white 1972 C10 seen here is one of the later examples of … Continue reading »

1960 Impala - Taking Flight

The late 1950s and early 1960s are often referred to as the era of the tail fin. These aircraft-inspired accents could be found on many cars from this time period, and few of those applications are more recognizable than the 1960 Chevy Impala. A winglike ridge lines each side of the bodywork, culminating in a squared-off tip at each corner. It was perfect for a society that had fallen in love with … Continue reading »

1987 Chevy Silverado - No Ordinary Parts Hauler

At face value, the term "parts hauler" sounds like a negative description for a vehicle. When you hear about a shop's parts hauler truck, you'd likely imagine a beat-up, dented old workhorse—a vehicle made for running errands, nothing more. If you're anything like us, you certainly wouldn't imagine something as clean and tastefully modified as this 1987 Chevy Silverado could be an ordinary parts hauler. Then again, once you hear the identity of … Continue reading »
