Just added 10 new links to the Lots O' Links section.

Some were sent in and others I found while touring thru the forums. You'll see I've got a few YouTube videos in there, too. I thought there were pretty interesting (two electrical ones and one about the wiring and cables for Clam Shell Doors).

So hope these are helpful. Check them out.

And if you see I have something subsequently listed in a wrong area, or there is a better area to put it (or in addition to), just let me know.

And if they don't apply to our trucks, PLEASE let me know. I know one site had parts for 1969 and above, which is not a lot of our years -- but still a few.

Thanks for the 1952 Chevy Truck site!
For some reason I've always been "attached" to that particular year and now I have another site to ogle!

I guess its happy childhood memories that makes me "silly" about 'em.

Our old neighborhood was full of 'em and other ADs, and us kids got to ride in the backs many times on outings.

Today that would probably be a "criminal act". wink

Dave has one super impressive site. He's been on our site a lot but not registered. It looks like he is doing plenty to keep himself busy.

He has one of the best set up and documented build blogs I have seen. Although I have not seen a LOT ... but this one really impressed me and I think the AD guys could get a lot from him ... either from his site or asking him questions. He's in the UK but he's very good about answering emails.

Howdy! Let me start by saying I check the Stovebolt daily, usually just General section. In that regard when there is an entry that don't meet your criteria its indicated by a black mark, moved. Moved to where? It would be helpful if the explanation indicated where ? I have, more than once, tried to chase one of those "moved" titles. How about letting the black mark follow the topic.
I have a 1938 running and licensed, general interest tales is what makes my day. I find some inquiries and replies educational. Been there and done that as I have salvaged this, over 50 years ago from my Father in laws junkyard and it required 3 donors, not from his yard, to make what I have.
I wonder where you are going to move this.
Thanks for letting me vent. wheezer

Wheezer, when a moderator feels the post will be better served in another forum he can move it. When he does so there is an arrow put at the original post. When you click on the post and it says "this topic has been moved" just click on that phrase and it will take you to the forum it was moved to. The moderator determines if the arrow stays there one, two, three days or more. Typically I leave the arrow for 3 days. That is sufficient time for most anyone to notice the post has been moved and to where. The moderator also can send a PM to the original poster to let him know where, or why it has been moved.
I hope this helps clear this up. It is actually moved to HELP the poster and to also stay within the guidelines of the forums.
Thanks for your understanding.

...and in all honesty, the post you made above is a good candidate for the Greasy Spoon?

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile
