Last year was a landmark for trucks. The F series and Silverado/Sierra models were the top two best-selling automobiles for the past year, outselling the humdrum Toyota Camry. As a result, every truck manufacturer announced new design models for 2014 and updated many of their existing lines. The biggest change is the 2014 GM truck with all-new design and engines. The custom parts are already flowing for the new model trucks.

The C-10 trucks have remained extremely popular for who want to build or fix up classic trucks. The style has leaned towards resto-mod and patina with character on the outside with new suspension and performance mods or LS swaps under the hood.

Furthering the performance aspect is the pro-touring-style trucks built for autocross and canyon carving. Several companies began to develop C-10-specific suspension handling components and performance parts to further the pro-touring C-10 scene.

Going into 2014, it’s the fifteenth year of Street Trucks Magazine. To honor this anniversary, we’reselecting 15 of the hottest trucks and crowning one the 2013 Street Truck of the Year! In selecting these trucks we looked for trendsetters, innovative trucks and quality, and we judged the popularity and reach a certain truck has had at shows and with our readers. We congratulate all of those selected on their hard work, innovation and dedication to helping grow the custom truck world.

The winners of the Top 15 trucks and the Street Truck of the Year will be awarded specialty trophies designed and produced by the guys at Aftermath Designs. Visit them at

We look for trendsetting and innovative trucks with a following.
We have selected Cloud 9, the ’67 Chevrolet C-10 built by Mike Losh, as the 2013 Street Truck of the Year. Cloud 9 debuted at SEMA last year with Car Crazy TV. But the story began long before that with a family heirloom truck that underwent years of build time. The entire build-up was showcased online and the truck gained a following. The clean and crisp factory styling blended the classic look with innovative touches and a few unique styling points throughout.
