  Welcome to our Virtual Garage for pre-1973 GM trucks -- If you're restoring, preserving or just driving an ole "Stovebolt," this website has information we know you'll find useful for living with your old truck -- links to parts vendors (the best list of Stovebolt-related links on the 'Net!), a Gallery of old trucks, helpful Tech Tips, 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.

Stories and photos from the 12th Annual Stovebolt Reunion in Kansas City

Well, the event was a smashing success. Great weather. Wonderful turnout (from Australia to Canada and lots of places in between). Some impressive rides (not only the Stovebolt ones but lots on the show field).

Besides the lovely bunch you see here, be sure to check the Bolt Bucket to see more from the event.

Congratulations and thanks to those who came out to meet face-to-face with on-line Bolters. Impressive support and cooperation for the entire event. Looking forward to reading more of the stories from the weekend.



An old truck with a lot of story

This 1952 Chevy truck belong to David Craig from the United Kingdom. He's got a cool story about it in the Gallery, but more important: he has a whole website devoted to the nine-year restoration of this truck. It's one better than a build-blog since he includes lots of photos and instructions on how he did a variety of restored, modified and upgrade. A must see!
