From Mick :

        I love your web site. I like to see that the old trucks are still alive in the hearts of America. I spent four years in the US Navy, stationed in Japan. I first saw this web site while out to sea. I couldn't wait to get back to the good old USA and find me an old Chevy.

        I finished my time in the service and found myself an old, beat up 1966 C10 Long Box Stepside. The truck was in very bad shape. There was not one good panel on this truck. This is no show truck!

        I bought this truck from a friend for $200. It has the 250 straight six with a four speed. This is my daily driver to work and play.

        I have the truck sprayed with Hot Rod Flat Black Primer. I would like to get two new front fenders and two new back fenders next spring. Want to get some paint on my old Chevy, too.

        This is a very fun truck to drive. I get a lot of looks on the street.

        I also have a 283 small block with Tri power in store for next summer.

        I don't have any pictures of the truck before I started fixing it up. I didn't have a digital camera at the time I started working on the truck.

        These pictures were after I welded cab corners, rockers, floor pans, repaired the seat with a LMC truck seat, new carpet, new wood box, CD player: bed \ interior \ side view

        Thanks for the great web site.

        Well, Mick thanks for serving (first off) and glad you found us! That's pretty cool to hear you stumbled across the site while at sea ... and got the Stovebolt Fever. If this truck was a mess when you got it, it sure if a far cry from that now. Looks great! Glad to have you in our Gallery. ~ Editor
