1949 Chevy Stepside
29 November 2006
From Paul :
This truck consists of a 1949 Chevrolet cab with 1954 doors, 1953 bed on a 1977 chassis, a 1978 350 C.I. mated to an 1982 350 turbo/TCI shift kit twisting a shaft to a GM twelve bolt. It has power steering, power disc brakes and a B&M ratchet shifter. The TCI breakaway helps chirp second. Flowmaster duals lets one hear the RV cam which has a mild lope. (Not to mention, this is a great shot! ~~ Editor)
The Genuine Chevy GMC Truck Club of Kansas City that we belong to makes all this worthwhile, as the Club hosts a few shows, and puts on two per year. They also set up two cruise nights per month to raise money to buy toys for the Toys for Tots program.
I must admit I have the worst looking truck in our Club but the other members are always happy to see us arrive as well as other members -- no matter what one drives. I am known as "Highway Runner" in our Club. I was the guy in the golf cart that was marked "Safety." I was the at the burnouts kicking the chalk blocks in front of the contestants. I was with Dave Oliver during the "Exhaust High Low" competition watching the decibel meter.
It is always great to see some of the Stovebolters arrive at the All Midwest Truck Nationals.

Paul, you are so right-on about the beautiful trucks that come to the Midwest All Truck Nationals in Kansas City, and the warm welcome. We had an absolute blast and can not wait to come back next year ... and every year! This was the best experience for us in 2006! See ya next year ~~ Editor
