From Clint:

        Hi! I am a United Methodist minister in Greenwood, Louisiana, just outside of Shreveport. My Bolt is a '42 Chevy 1/2-ton pickup that I traded a very rusty '66 Mustang hulk for earlier this year. It was manufactured in Kansas City I believe in January of 1942 and spent its entire life as a farm truck in Texas.

        I traded with the original owner's grandson. The frame was pretty rusted and the engine / driveline was frozen up. So I found another frame and driveline complete and in excellent shape just across the state line in Texas. See, I am keeping this Texas theme going. LOL.

        Anyway, the truck has been disassembled and cab has been sandblasted. It's in epoxy primer now while I finish the bodywork.

        I'll send some pictures as the work progresses.

        Thanks for a great website. It has been a huge help so far.
