From Preston :

           My truck is a 1965 Chevrolet C10 Stepside. It was originally my Dad's truck. He drove it to high school back in 1973.

           I'm 15, turning 16 in June 2008 and he's letting me carry on the tradition. He even has said it's now MY truck, which gives me great satisfaction and pride.

           I always have loved old trucks and was taught about a three on the tree around age nine.

           My Grandfather bought this truck in 1965 brand new and burned out the stock 292 in the first year. It was refitted with a 250 and has had that engine ever since.

           Additional pictures: driver's side / rear / motor

           It was used as a farm truck until the late 1980's and has very little mileage. It never has been kept in storage for long periods of time, which I hear is good. My Dad keeps it at his warehouse and starts it every morning when he arrives at work. It runs very, very well and shifts smoothly with the original tranny. I put a cherry bomb on there and it sounds really good.

           I want to touch up some rust spots and I'd really like to drop a 292 in it. It has 29 inch wheels, but i want to throw some 33's on it. A brush guard and a roll bar would look good, and I think it'd be fun to have a train horn.

           I intend to drive this truck until I die or the doors, wheels, fenders, engine, tranny, mirrors, windows, and axles fall off simultaneously (but seeing as how this is a Chevy, I think I'll probably die first).

           Nothing like a one-family Stovebolt. You'll need to pass that Chevy truck along to your kid! That's the Stovebolt family way! ~ Editor
