From Shannon :

           I had a 1958 Chevy pickup truck when I was in high school. But then I got car fever and let it go (young and dumb ).

           Fast forward 29 years. I saw this 1958 Chevy 3100 Apache Short bed Stepside truck on a sale lot in Mt. Airy, North Carolina (about 10 miles from where I live in Virginia). I let it set for two weeks. I knew the wife would not let me get it.

           On way to the bank one day, I showed it to her. She said, "Why don't you get it?" I almost flipped the Equinox getting into the lot. Turns out her Dad had one when she was little.

           So, I've had it a little over a month now. I have the bed off and am starting on the front end and cab. This will take a long time as I have to get tools and parts as I go. Here's a view from above.

           This is my first go at fixing up a truck. I am going to do body work myself. I will need lots of Stovebolt help to get it back together and back on the road. This will be a daily driver.

           Here are some Webshots photos.
