A 'virtual garage' of antique Chevy & GMC trucks from around the World
1946 and 1969 Chevrolet Pickups

From Matt :
Here are some photo's of my 1946 and 1969 Chevy pickups. The 1946 was given to me by my Father. It was made into a street rod in the 1960's when I got a 'Vette tranny. From engine to rearend, this thing is a racer. It has headers, aluminum intake, 4 barrel carb, 327 engine and 350 transmission with a super rear end that will smoke both tires.
I've began to convert the '46 to run off a hydrogen genterator and gasoline. It effectively doubles the gas milage of the truck. The Hydrogen Generator uses the electricity to break water down into its gas form. H20 is lead low pressure into the carb. The Hydrogen and Oxygen mix with the gas and during combustion create a richer mixture of combustants -- gasoline, oxygen, hydrogen -- which increase the horse power of the vehicle. It makes the vehicle burn clean emissions, effectively cleaning the air as you drive. This makes the classic vehicle run more efficiantly and environmentally friendlier than a straight gas powerd car or truck.
There are other kits coming available to convert your car and truck straight to hydrogen which is again made from water. With the set ups that are currently available, you can use solar panels to create the energy to convert the water to hydrogen gas, which then could provide a continous supply of energy for you and your car, without any toxic affects to the environment. It's the cleanest form of energy around. Once I complete the project, I'll send you the final figures. I've put together a few sites that talk about hydrogen.
I love both trucks and refuse to buy this new plastic stuff they sell nowadays. I have two other 1960's hotrods and will drive nothing else. These cars are great investments and only appreciate overtime.
Included is a picture when I towed the 1946 back to Arizona from Texas -- a 20 hour trip with the awesome 1969 Chevy.
Livin' it and loving it.
