ryan.manson@motortrend.com One of the hardest aspects of my position is trying to best determine the editorial coverage when it comes to tech stories. The easy solution is to just run what I think might be cool, but then I have to remember that not all of us are into the same thing. Some guys dig C10s that lay their rockers in the weeds while others won’t look at anything unless it’s a straight-axle’d Ford. I like to think I’m somewhere in the middle; I dig just about anything that’s lowered and overpowered. But, like all y’all, when it comes to one of my personal builds, I have my own mental mockup and direction that I’d like to take it. And that’s when things get, complicated. Like most of you, I have a…

win the week to wicked 1972 c10

Whether it be cable TV or Internet, on demand there’s quite a few car shows where there’s always a deadline and some kind of car or truck has to get built in a big hurry. But the Week To Wicked series is the only show covered in real time on Facebook Live proving it really happened. And it’s not only seen on Facebook Live but professionally produced videos with daily updates appearing on YouTube and www.classictrucks.com. Giving away a Week To Wicked–built classic Chevy C10 is a tradition that started with the very first LMC Truck C10 Nationals and it continues again on May 3-4, 2019 at the Texas Motor Speedway. This year’s giveaway truck is a ’72 Chevy C10 Fleetside shortbed and it was built from the frame up using…

power blue

Chevys aren’t the only type of vehicles on Mark Hollie’s list of favorite rides. Neither are classic trucks. Both just happen to be high on that list. Mark has been building, buying, and driving cool cars and trucks for more than 30 years, and his lifetime collection of Bowtie haulers has included ’51, ’53, and ’66 pickups, among others. His most recent classic Chevy advances him forward in time to 1972 and this custom C10. If you squint it looks tame—but you don’t have to look hard to see a few outward clues hinting that the powder blue and white paint might be covering up a high-performance personality. The truck was already finished when Mark discovered it in Atlanta. He told his friend Steve Green about it first. It was newly finished…

getting rid of rot

For those who truly care about their classic truck one of the scariest things that can happen is finding rust. It may be a little bubble under the paint or a hole you can stick your head through, but regardless of the severity it must be dealt with to keep it from getting worse; the question often asked is “how?” There was a time when all sorts of creative, albeit unrefined, methods of rust repair (we use that word loosely) were to simply cover it up with fiberglass, a chunk of sheetmetal screwed into place, or a combination of both. We’ve seen rust holes filled with expandable foam and body filler and once had a truck that a previous owner had patched the floor with a combination old license plates and…
