Spring is here!

If you are bringing the old truck out of winter storage, or up from the woods, be sure to check the Tech Tip for a few helpful hints.

If you have some work to do before you go cruising, be sure to check out what parts you need from American Classic Truck Parts. They still offer a 10% discount to Stovebolters.

"All the 59's (and many other years) used various hardwoods from their local regions."

I am always interested in seeing new documentation, especially 60-72.

I painted my new Oak floor with POR-15 black and their Black Top Coat two years ago and so far, so good (she is garage kept)...
