From Tim:

     Hello Fellow Stovebolters. It's been awhile since I submitted any new pictures. This website and the people who run it are GREAT, aren't they? Super Website and Super People!

     I must say 2005 was slow in the "working on the old truck" department. This year is doing much better. I finally installed an aluminum radiator that's been sitting under my bed since 2004, along with stainless steel radiator hoses and twin fans. Yahoo!

     Next, I installed one of them new-fangeled 18" aluminum transmission coolers. Little by little, my friends.

     I hope all is well with you and yours.

     It's been awhile since I've written. These pictures have been there for awhile. My old computer was giving me fits. It finally died and I have now purchased a new computer. Today while surfing around, I stumbled across your website again! Low and behold, there was my truck! You still have pictures posted.

     I'm still banging the truck out, but I did have some fun driving it to different events last year. From Little Rock, I drove to Knoxville and then, in HOT August, I drove to Beaumont, Texas. It's been fun!

From Tim:

     Thanks for including my '46 truck on your website. I like the way you laid it all out.  This is a small update.  I did manage to get the truck licensed and running just in time for winter.  I'll attach a few new pics. Use any or none...as you see fit ...YOU THE MAN.

     Merry Christmas and Thanks Again!

From Tim:

     Hello all. I have been plagued by a LOT of problems, setbacks and a general lack of operating capital. Work is nearly finished on my 1/2-ton pickup. If beaters are sweeter, my little truck should take the blue ribbon at the state fair this fall. A donor 1970 Camaro offered up it's front clip, 350 motor (now with mild cam), TH350 and rearend.

     Currently installing new axles & full bearings in the rearend, due to water damage. A custom firewall was installed by my good friend, Doyle Miller. Doyle also handled the welding and installation of the front clip. Other items of interest: ididit steering column, VDO gauges, and 40/40 seats from a late model Chevy pickup. Lokar cables run the functions, including emergency brakes. The truck has been dipped in PPG epoxy primer after paint and rust removal. With any luck, I'll get to drive the truck later this year.


     Please let me know when you've posted something, so I can tell my friends.

Thanks guys!
