  Welcome to our Virtual Garage for pre-1973 GM trucks -- If you're restoring, preserving or just driving an ole "Stovebolt," our "e-zine" has information we hope you'll find useful for living with your old truck -- from links to parts vendors (the best list of Stovebolt-related links on the 'Net!), a Gallery of old trucks to a virtual Swap Meet where you can find (or sell) those elusive parts to complete your restoration projects. We even have a discussion forum where you can ask questions, post ideas and even hang out with some old rusty Stovebolters!

We have a lot of things here but the best one is knowledge and we share it for free (no membership dues or pay-to-view).

So pull up a virtual running board, cop a squat and check the Gallery for lots of old truck stories. If you have some questions about the old GM truck project you are working on, try our FAQ, Tech Tips or jump right into The Forums, where the Stovebolt Brain Trust resides.

We've got everything in here from 1/2-tons to 3-tons, COE's, Panels and 'Burbs, Firetrucks, Tow trucks -- Lots of trucks in all shapes, sizes and stages of restoration and enjoyment.

Join us and make us stronger
Because none of us are as smart as all of us!

A man and his motor

Waking up a 65 year old truck from 33 years of slumber, well ... it's a Bolter's idea of Springtime!

Craig and Mark Weisseg (and a host of interested family, friends, neighbors ... on on-line buddies), have made all this happen in a little over a year!

The truck is on the road

Read more about this fascinating journey in the Gallery story. Mark has done a great job to journal the entire experience.
