From George :

I'm looking forward to the Stovebolt Reunion at the Kansas City All Truck Nationals show this year! I've been working on my 1958 Fleetside and am glad that it will be ready for the show. My partner has a '49 Ford and a Gas Delivery truck that I did the mechanical work on and he should be bringing those.

The biggest update since last year has been my paint job. I changed from the solid color to two tone. In this picture, you can see the color contrast real well.

I also put a five speed in it from a Chevy S10. It still has the 350 engine and four barrel carb, Firebird rear end with Camaro Rally Wheels.

Only a week or two ago was the first time I had it out driving around the neighborhood. I went to a local show in Riverside. The weather has been so hot, that it's been more comfortable to drive the '70 Chevy Stepside since it has air conditioning and power steering. The '70 is practically my daily driver.

I keep this one at the shop and it's under cover. Since I go to the shop ever morning, I can bring it home with me whenever I want.

The little girl is my neighbor's. She calls us Aunt Stella & Uncle George.

Well, she's a cutie pie! Uncle George should bring her to the show! It'll be great to see the '58, oh and you, too! ~ Editor

From George :

This is my newest 1958 Chevy Fleetside. I sold my blue 1958 Chevy C-10 about a year ago. So, I started looking for another one. When you are not looking, a truck you want jumps out at you. As soon as you are ready, you can't find what you want. Geezzz!

I found this classic truck on the local Craigslist. It was located in Lee Summit, MO which is only about 20 miles from my shop.

I had a lot of stuff left over from the other '58. Plus, I had some good ideas from having worked on the other one. I like the '55-'59 style. I really like '55 and '56 the best but they are really hard to find.

The truck basically had good running gear but nothing electrical worked -- no lights, gauges, horn. It had a new wiring harness installed but it wasn't completed.

There were also a lot of things the previous owners had done I wanted to change.

This vintage truck has a 350 engine, Saginaw 4 speed, and Firebird posi rear end.

I've had this truck for six months. It's been in various states of repair -- I've been working on one end or the other. I got all the electricals done!

I'll use this truck for shows and driving around in good weather and what not. I took it to a nearby show just recently.

I am making a lot of progress but still have a long way to go. It will be ready the Stovebolt Reunion in Kansas City in 2010.

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
