This page is dedicated to humble beginnings. These photos and stories are taken and told by the owners/builders of trucks featured in this issue. Most date back years ago and are glimpses of a time when there wasn’t an end in sight.


Ross Johns’ 1990 Chevrolet S-10

“I had to search through an old computer to find these photos, they are that old. I’m glad I found them though, because this truck has been a part of my life for so long. It’s cool to look back at the build phase.”


Eric Higdon’s 1998 Chevrolet S-10

"I’m sure this is not the last time this truck will be done. Maybe I’ll keep it as-is and just drive the hell out it. I haven’t decided yet."


Daniel Heman’s 1997 Chevrolet S-10

“Here’s a look at the handmade sheetmetal engine bay, the 112-piece aluminum grille being finished up after over 200 hours of design and fab work, and the all-metal bed with Lexan pocket and battery compartments in primer. I had planned to leave a spot in the dash for my grandfather’s old workshop clock early in the build.
