Calin's Pick
Favorite Truck:
Dwayne Holder's '36 Ford

Why Calin Picked It:
I have 565 reasons I picked Dwayne's Ford and they are all sticking out of the engine compartment. What can I say? I'm a sucker for trucks with excessive amounts of motor stuffed into a lightweight chassis. Now you may be thinking a steel '36 Ford truck isn't that light, but this truck is all fiberglass on a tube chassis, tipping the scales at only 2,600 pounds. Now you see why the title is "Onehelluvaride."

Andy's Pick
Favorite Truck:
Kulvinder Mattu's '05 Chevy Colorado

Why Andy Picked It:
Having been a fan of the Colorado ever since it replaced the S-10, I really like seeing them customized and really tricked out. Kulvinder's Chevy is the perfect blend of old-school style and new tech. The paint color combination is awesome, and the engine-turned color break down the side is an exclamation point to an already perfect ride.

Kevin's Pick
Favorite Truck:
Gabe Sandoval's '83 Chevy C10
What Issue:
August 2007

Why Kevin Picked It:
It's hard to decide on one vehicle, but Gabe's truck struck me as the cleanest feature truck of the whole year. It's an all-around custom truck with a sweet, single-color paintjob by Kustom Werx and a subtle yet clean interior. On top of that, it has a wicked 327-cid engine that was rebuilt by his own brother and uses a crankshaft from their father's racing Vette. I'm not really a big fan of these square-body Chevys, but this one is done well and is plain-out sick. While on vacation in the Houston area, I was able to capture the images of Gabe's amazing ride. A special thanks to my friend, Rascoe, for warding off the wannabe cops who tried to shut us down in Old Town Spring, Texas.

Galen's Pick
Favorite Truck:
Jay Martinez' '99 Gmc Sierra
What Issue:
March 2007
Where You Saw It:
Cover And Page 58
Why Galen Picked It:
When a guy builds a cover truck and doesn't even think twice about pulling a trailer behind it, that says a lot. Jay's philosophy is that it can be fixed, and that is exactly what happened. Most people would have lost hope and started a new project, but not Jay. Six months later, this incarnation of the truck was sitting on the floor of the Las Vegas convention center at SEMA, done again.

Mike's Pick
Favorite Truck:
Tom Pagano's '56 Ford F-100
What Issue:
July 2007

Why Mike Picked It:
This is easily my favorite truck that we've featured in Sport Truck this year. Tom's truck has everything I look for in a custom truck: power, style, and uniqueness. The blown Mustang Cobra mod motor looks amazing, but I think my favorite part of this truck is the spun aluminum fuel cell, surrounded by all of that stainless steel tubing, mounted in the bed. The fuel cell looks old-school, and it's the perfect accent to this truck. If you ever get the chance to hear this uncorked truck run, you'll swear you're standing next to a PSCA race car that's about to run the the quarter in less than 7 seconds. It's nasty!
