From George :

             I wanted to send some updated photos of my truck. I have it on the road now . It still is along way from done but what a cool feeling it is to finally be able to go for a cruise. I have put about 300 miles on it just since last weekend and this thing goes great.

             I really have to think about all I have done to it since 2005. I swapped the frame to a different one that was in better shape. I have replaced the king pins and all the suspension bushings and tons of rust repair on the cab and front fenders. I cheated and bought new rear body sides and fenders.

             I still have to get the doors to fit a little better and finish the body work before paint. I'm saving that for rainy days. If the sun is shining, I'm going cruising.

             I have to thank you for a great web site. I don't post often but I check the forums most every day and always look forward to the new additions to the Gallery. I'm hooked on these trucks.

             Thanks again.

             It's always good to hear from some of our old-timers (George just turned 40 so everyone is calling him an "old timer." Now, any Stovebolt # 5,000 or below is an "old guy." ~~ Editor

From George :

             Here's my 1950 Chevy 3100. Since I bought it a year ago, I have installed a great floor board kit, new rocker panels, cab corners, and cowl panels. I took out the running 216 and installed a 350 and a automatic transmission. I have swapped the rearend for a 10-bolt and installed a disc brake kit and new wiring.

             I'm hoping to be able to drive it next summer if I can get the rest of the body work done.

             My wife and daughter refers to it as "the thing out in the garage." But they are starting to come around. My son, who is six, loves to work on it with me.

Thanks,
