    Hey guys, I joined this site because I love GM and especially GM trucks and I figured some guys on here would have some good tips for repairs and stuff as I like to do everything I can by myself. I am 20 years old and bought my dads 1994 C1500 Silverado to help me with my small lawn care business.

    Thanks guys. I don't know if I posted these pictures correctly so I hope everyone can see this. It's not much but it's a tough truck and it's been with our family since it was born in February '94.

    Welcome to the Club. We all started with stock trucks, and slowly made them better. Your truck looks great, and keeping it looking good must be hard in Chicago! Well done!!

    You can say that again! This truck has spent every single day of its life outside, never once been in the garage. It sits in snow, rain, hail, sleet and is constantly coated in salt every winter so all that considered...it doesn't look that bad haha. But I could almost stick my head in that rust hole (yes I have tried).
