From Ronald: 

          Fellow Stovebolters, here is a picture of my 1952 Chevrolet COE. This Advance Design Big Bolt is powered by the original babbit-pounding 235.

          I found this ol' girl on the lot of Adler's Antique Autos in nearby Stephentown, NY where it sat for a little more than a decade. Much work has been completed (brake lines, brake shoes, wheel cylinders, master cylinder, oil pump, recorred radiator, etc.) and a lot is planned when spring 2005 arrives.

          I intend to keep her as stock and original as possible with the exception of installing a 261 and electric wipers. She has been on the road since late summer 2004 and has proven very handy with some moving chores and a real blast to drive!

          Here is a picture of my 1961 White 2000 to keep my Chevy Cabover company. This is a roadworthy truck powered by a White Mustang 6 cylder engine. GVW of this truck is 22,000.
