From Jay :

           Hi all. Glade to join with all the "Bolt Heads." Here some photos of my 1964 Chevy C10 short box. [ rear view ]The truck is a pro-street with 468 ci and 500+ HP [ under the hood ] with a GearVendor six speed over drive system. It's been many years of work.

           The truck was a rust free starter and it went through six years of a frame up creation after all the work. The last details where to add a chrome grille bumper and slick new head lamps. [ interior dash ]

           I spent a Saturday detailing and readying the truck for its first show and my first show. There were 340 plus cars and trucks with 23 in my class. To my surprise, the truck took first place in its class. I'm still grinning!

           I was looking forward to a great summer of cruizing and shows. Then on the Friday before Memorial Day weekend, I was replacing the alternator bracket with some thing more heavy duty.  The truck was backed into by a DUI dope at a friend's shop. He stoved in the nose of the truck and wreaked all the new chrome, the hood and more.

           As Stovebolters know, no one makes hoods for 1960 to 1966 trucks. So after many calls, I went on to the Stovebolt help forum and within hours, I had dozens of replies and all the parts I needed. Brian "colettsbro" Johnson of Owatonna Minnesota, came to the rescue with a good rust free hood. He built a crate and with his help and others, the truck was back on the road by Thanksgiving '07.

           So thanks for all the help and support from fellow Stovbolters!

           Those Stovebolters do us proud!! Glad it all worked out and congrats on the trophy!! Excellent!! ~~ Editor
