WINNERS for 2008!

The Great Stovebolt Bail Out


Thanks to our prize donors

We don't promise a plan for helping the dismal state of global affairs, but we do have a bi-partisan, sure-fire plan to bail you out of any depression you'll have following the elections, fuel prices, weather turmoil, economic disaster ... or just the winter (summer for you Bolters in Oz ) doldrums this year -- our annual photo contest !! It's the same fun year after year!

American Classic Truck Parts was the first to knock at the door. "How can we help?" So, they've donated the big cash prize for the contest. Three hundred smackers -- cold cash!

What a motivator. Soon after, some of our other good friends responded with prizes, too. These folks - American Classic, Mongo's Garage, Purdee, The Filling Station, Mar-K, Poets, Bob Fox, Ed Hoover and The Hollister Road Comapny ... sure makes this easier for us! And GREAT prizes!
