From Rob:

       Well, on the 'Bolt I'm known as "Still Lookin'" 'cause I still haven't found that ideal ol' Bolt. But I've got my '48 Willys CJ2A to enjoy for now.

       When I was 12 or 13 (back in '81), Dad took me to an auction and there was this old flat fender Willys. Needless to say, I was hooked. My opinion was then (and pretty much still is) real Jeeps have flat fenders!

       Finally, 20 years later I find one. A friend of my brother had taken it in on a house painting job and I had a full size Bronco with a bad tranny. You can see where this is going. He wanted my Bronco and I, of course, wanted the Willys!

       It was faded black when I brought it home and had a few issues. But it came with nearly new tires and chrome wheels and a Bestop.

       But real Jeeps also had to be olive drab green. So thanks to Krylon and Walmart, it became just what I wanted.

       So here's a pic and later on I'll send in a pic of my Super A Farmall.

       I love The 'Bolt. It has brought back my desire to have an old Chevy again!

       In August 2006, Rob finally got himself a Stovebolt -- a FREE Stovebolt -- a BIG Stovebolt -- a 1951 1-ton Dump. Now he's "still lookin" for parts, parts, parts ~~ Editor
