a fresh new exciting outlook for the c10 culture

WITH ONE builder’s guide under my belt that has been published and passed around nationwide, I can already feel the love this industry has for not only the trucks, but the lifestyle that ultimately tags along. The messages I’ve received and the warm welcomes tossed my way make me grateful for the position, and it opens my eyes to see just how many enthusiasts are actually paying attention. The C10 community is an active audience that is quick to praise, although ready to throw shade if you need correcting. Mistakes will always be made, but it’s nice to know the fans always have your back. In this issue, we are bringing some heat as we break down quite a few incredible feature truck stories, event coverage from around the country and…

seal it!

Rod End Dust Boots SEALS-IT RODOBAL DUST boots completely isolate the rod ends in your suspension and steering from dirt, water and other types of contaminants.

slammed64 super-truck

WHEN YOUR CUSTOM VEHICLE resume is as impressive and extensive as Tony Leal’s roster, the problem generally becomes what to do next—and how do you top your previous builds? Leal’s shop, now known as Slammed64s, specializes in the lowest of the low and the baddest of the bad and just so happens to generally revolve around the year 1964. Why ’64? Tony’s answer came quick and easy: “Because pretty much everything built in 1964 was badass!” He has knocked out a handful of 1964 truck builds before (featured in these pages and others), including both Chevy and Ford versions. But for this build, there was quite a bit more on the line than just topping his previous personal builds. This one would be entirely different and mean much more, as this 1964…

WHEN JOSH GIFFORD decided that he needed to showcase his shop’s capabilities, he knew that he couldn’t just build something ordinary. Sure, you can show off the quality of your skills while keeping things understated, but Josh really wanted something that would make even the average non-automotive type stop in their tracks. Creative Mobile Interiors specializes in custom RVs and buses, so something large-and-in-charge was a must. The tough part was finding a worthwhile candidate. Maybe a wild Sprinter van? Nah. How about a new Ford Transit? Nope, too boring for the masses. Add in the fact that Josh is a bowtie guy through and through, and he soon realized that he wanted to take it old school and build a classic GM RV. Luckily for Josh, it’s not terribly difficult to…
