From George:

        I located this truck about a year ago in Colorado from an ad on the Internet. I drove out and purchased it.

        I borrowed my partner's rollback and went out to haul it back to Kansas City. It was in reasonably good shape but needed the usual going over. Brakes, tune up, front end and wiring.

        After detailing and some interior work, it turned into a real sharp truck and a great driver. I have had a lot of fun working on it and going to the local cruise night.

George has a nice collection of 'Bolts ... plus a few that he has parted with. In 2011, he added a nice red 1956 Chevy 1/2-Ton. He's had his 1970 Chevy C-10 Stepside for a while (which we've seen at the Stovebolt Reunion in Kansas City). Previously, he had a 1958 Chevy C-10, a 1958 Chevy Fleetisde and a 1955 Chevy 1/2-Ton (we still have a nice shots / stories in the Gallery). ~~ Editor
