Stovebolt Sagas

The Stovebolt Sagas -- Stovebolters' epic adventures searching out those elusive, restorable (or restored, or even mint) old Stovebolts! First person accounts that record what it was like, in the heyday, as it were, of the old truck hobby, to actually find an un-restored, all original Stovebolt in its natural environment. Your experiences are the heroic sagas of today -- your adventures may thrill as-yet unborn generations of Stovebolters!
