Came across the September 1973 Consumer Reports magazine, and in it, a comparison of the six leading light duty trucks of 1973. The participants were the Ford F100, Chevrolet C10, Dodge D100, Toyota Hi-lux, Chevrolet Luv, and the Datsun Li'l Hustler. Click here to read it all for yourself.

Are you in to radio controlled cars & trucks? If so, would you like to have a 73-87 radio controlled truck? Well, I have good news....you can! While I was hanging out at one of the 73-87 message boards I frequent, a member there posted a picture of the R/C Blazer you see below. Turns out this Blazer belonged to one of his online friends...and since I thought it was one of the coolest little toys I have ever seen, I asked if he could put me in contact with the builder. Long story short, Santiago Montejo (the builder), put together this article for all of us to read. So, if you think this is something you would like to do, click the picture below to be taken to his article. Oh, before I forget...he has provided detailed pictures of three 73-87's he has built! Thank you Santiago!
Been working on the truck a little lately, click the image below to see a couple other "updated" pictures. Also, wrapped up the fuel cell install article...added the final picture, one of the fuel door installed in the painted bed floor. I am pleased with how it turned out.
Want to add an overhead console to your 73-87 truck? A visitor of this site and an online friend of mine, Bruce Latulip, has put together a new tech article doing exactly that! Bruce just recently installed a late model overhead console to his beautiful stepside and took the time to take some photos along the way and put together a neat little how-to for the site. Click the link above to see exactly how it was done.
Finally had a chance to update the site after a couple months. I have added some brand new GM assembly line photos courtesy of visitor Larry Wittman, click here to see the latest additions. Larry also sent in some other GM promotional photos, they can be seen here. Thank you very much Larry for sharing these with all of us!
Lately I have been receiving numerous E-mails requesting help decoding all sorts of engines and transmissions. Unfortunately I do not own any engine or transmission suffix books, but I can however tell you where to begin your search. Visit Mortec.com, there is a ton of information on their site pertaining to Chevrolet engines, and more than likely you will find what you are looking for there. If that doesn't answer your question, please visit any of the sites below, all are filled with owners of these trucks (and older), someone is bound to know there. My screen name is bigblock73 on all four, stop by and say hi.
