From Rob :
I drove Gumby this winter and even at 30 below, it ran great and never let me down.
I had a new carb put on as well as a complete tune-up done this past fall. I installed a set of three point seat belts so I can take my kids with me.

Still enjoying the site. It keeps getting better all the time!
Thanks, Rob. We certainly have a good group of Stovebolters, which really makes this site a happening place! Ol' Gumby is looking pretty fine! ~~ Editor
From Rob :
My truck is a 1971 GMC. I bought it [ pix ] in the fall of 2006 and drove it for a month before parking it for the winter. It was restored several years ago and is in great shape and a blast to drive.
It has a 350 with an automatic and just about no options -- very plain but I love it.
My plan is to use it as a daily driver, in summer, and eventually restore it properly.
I just found your Stovebolt Page and it is fantastic.
