From Jim:

          The old Bolt has made it here and I had her parked in the back for a while. But now I've made room in the garage and she is ready for some work. I have located a bed thanks to Barry Weeks -- He had one.

          I'm almost ready to start except now I decided I needed a bigger GARAGE. So thatís what I'm up to. Construction starts very soon.

From Jim:

          This 1940 Chevy 3/4-ton was given to me. I came across it through a friend who knew of a gentleman who wanted to give it away. The gentleman, Duane had owned it since the 1960's and no longer had a desire to keep it.

          The truck originated from Spokane, WA and belonged to a hardware store. The original 216 engine is no longer in it (out with the 6 and in with a 8, only because the six is missing in action.). I have plans to put in a SBC (283). I also plan to shorten the frame 10 inches, add all new running gear, newer front suspension, disc brakes, body work and paint, and am looking for a bed for it.
