From Nick :

Hi! I always thought it was just me that loves old trucks then I found this brilliant site. I'm sure it's going to be a beautiful friendship.

This is my 1958 Chevy 1/2-ton Apache Stepside long bed truck.

After looking at some rough old truck specimens, this Task Force truck appeared on eBay. A viewing and test drive told me this is a good one. So the haggling began. The owner would not come down to my offer so I left it there with my details.

On the way home, you start to get 20/20 hind sight vision, and by the morning, it was getting bad! So at 8.30 am, I called and paid his price. I still think it was a good deal although I can't tell you how much I paid. It looks a lot written down!

I picked up "Daisy" in Boston ... not YOUR Boston, OUR Boston! We drove 150 miles home, without a hitch.

She needs lots of love and attention. That's where I hope I can call on you at Stovebolt for valuable info. Look forward to a steep learning curve!

Very best regards,

Nick Searle
