January 2008 Update

From Stu:

Well, the 'Burb is with her new owner and I have post partum angst.  She fetched a nice price at the Barrett-Jackson acution. Cars were going for a song, so it was gut wreching. I got quite a few kudos. Completely different feeling than a show, as these guys CRAWLING all over your car may be buyers with tens of  thousands of dollars to give you. 

Got a small amount of feature time on SpeedVision and a goodly round of bidding on the block.

The whole experience was pretty overwhelming.

Stu had such a great story with lots of interesting details and side-tracks, we turned this into a feature: Stu Scores a 'Burb. You'll need to read it. It's great! ~ Editor


17 October 2005

From Stu:

       Here's some updated pics of my 'Burb.

       I sold a Nova on eBay and used proceeds for 'Burb. I moved to a hew home and the 'Burb sat for two years with its component parts in boxes in the garage (took up the space of two cars). I ate my guts out looking at that pile of stuff until I'd had enough and listed it in the Swap Meet for 12K. 

       I went on the discussion forums and moaned and groaned about the Wall (I just can't go on with this restoration . . . shoot me now).  Some guy said the premium auctions are getting 50K for a 'Burb and that was enough for me to get going again.

       Chevy Duty and Jim Carter started getting parts orders again and at this writing, all that's left are seats, running boards and harness hook ups - WOOPY!


December 2003

From Stu:

       This is a '51 Chevy Suburban [ picture ] I found languishing at an Arizona feed store. Had it been Minnesota, I don't think there would have been much left.

      I bought it in February, 1996 as my first restoration and I'm still working on it. Cab metal work is now almost complete. I showed the chassis at the Santa Cruz Valley Car Nuts Show January 29, '00 and got two-to-three lookers non-stop for six hours -- whew!

       Old farts and their "Stovebolt 6" stories coming out my ears.

       I love the site and I love this truck.

Keep On Truckin'
