From Doug:

      I purchased this 1966 Chevrolet C-10 on June 24, 2006 for $1,750.00, and it replaces "Curly" (see below). "Curly" was crushed by a Oak tree on January 14, 2006 during a severe windstorm. I have decided to name this truck "Curly Too" for obvious reasons.

      "Curly Too" is a completely original (except for the paint and hub caps) long bed fleetside, and currently has 50,700 actual miles. It is powered by a 283 V-8 engine that is teamed up with a Powerglide transmission. It also has the Custom Appearance option and the large rear window. Also, I think it has Positraction.

      This is the third 1966 Chevrolet pickup I've owned in the last 21 years, and probably will not be the last. These trucks are hard to beat. Maybe that is why the 1966 models were the best selling Chevrolet trucks. All three of the Chevrolet pickups I've owned were assembled at the same plant in Atlanta, Georgia during the spring of 1966.

From Doug:

      "Curly" was wrecked by a falling Oak tree on the evening of January 14, 2006 during a severe wind storm in the Georgia mountains. That old boy was with me for over 11 years, and served me well. He helped save my house from being severely damaged by that tree. Therefore, he was sort of a hero.

      I will be searching for another 1964-1966 Chevrolet Pick-up, and will add it to the gallery when I find a suitable replacement.

      The Stovebolt Collective rallied to Doug's support ... for aide, comfort and obviously some comic relief. So, Doug's thinking now (February 1) is "it may not be the end of the road for "Curly".  If it is not too expensive, I will replace the cab and hood." ~~ Editor

From Doug: 

 

      "Curly" ran like a champ on my trip to Connecticut in May 2005, but did not run as well on that gasohol that they use there. As you can see in the picture, my kitty felt right at home in "Curly."

From Doug: 

      I would like to introduce you to "Curly" my 1966 Chevrolet C-10 Longbed Fleetside. I purchased this truck for $2100 in October 1994 when it only had 46,500 miles. It has been a daily driver ever since I purchased it.

      "Curly" replaced my first Stovebolt, a 1966 C-30 Pickup that I had named "Rusty." "Rusty" had 357,000 miles when he retired so I know that "Curly" has a long way to go. "Curly" now has 158,000 miles on the original drive line. Even the clutch and alternator are original on this truck.

      I am going to take it up to Connecticut from Georgia in May, and I know that "Curly" will not let me down. He has made that journey at least a dozen times without any problems.
