From Steve :

           Well I have some sad news. I sold my 1957 Chevy, Albert. I was ambushed with a hand full of cash. So the 1965 Chevy 3100 will get some new parts faster than I thought.

           Thanks for the intel Steve. Hope we hear from the new owner so we can keep the history of Albert alive. ~~ Editor

From Steve :

           I found this 1957 3100 when cutting through a back street with my daughter last July. The lady told me it sat five years since her husband passed away. We came to terms after two weeks. I added brake fluid, fresh gas and drove it home. What a ride -- poor brakes and fast idle.

           It has 350/350 from '70 Chevy, power steering, four new glass fenders, S-10 tilt column, relocated fuel tank, new bed (a yellow pine with clear sealer), ok paint and power seat. I added some smaller tires to the front (pictured here), I think it looks better. After two months it now is my daily driver to work. It's great driving it to work at the Ford truck dealership.

           I found some 31 x 10.5 LTX at a swap meet. Come winter, I will figure out what to do next -- go stock, custom or rat rod. My Daughter named the truck Albert and thinks it's hers on her 16th birthday.

           Talked to a lot of nice Stovebolt people on Friday at Midwest Truck Nationals (Kansas City). Great people (This picture was taken at the show -- you can see the bigger tires.) Got a lot of good info. It's great what you can do with rattle can paint and some elbow grease

Thanks,
