From Christopher :

Here is my 1950 Chevy Advance Design truck. I bought it last July. This is the exciting and dramatic story.

I was in the market for a new truck and had actually put a deposit on a brand new truck. I just couldn't get excited about it though. That, and the thought of the payments was making me loose sleep.

So, I started looking for a used truck. Of course, this was right around the time when the bottom started to fall out of used cars and trucks up here in Canada. That's what had led me to a new truck, as ones a few years old were nearly the same price. Trouble is though, a newish truck has to look pretty good, I'm self employed you see.

And then I saw "Rochester." It hardly ran, but I got it home. Of course, it would never have been possible to get it to run as well as it does without Stovebolt. Boy, have I asked allot of questions here. Good Grief.

I have done so many things to that truck, and have enjoyed every minute of it. There were of course a number of surprises, like the engine mounts being made out of hockey pucks.

So far I have put 6500 miles on the truck.

Thanks to Trucknix's help, I have restored a radio for my truck as well.
