From Rick:

             I would like to have my truck shown in you gallery. I do not know for sure what to say here, so what follows is a description of our truck.

             These are some pics of our 1953 GMC pickup. It has a '62 235 truck engine, SM420 trans, and a '63 Impala rear end. It was built from parts of several trucks, and was mostly together when we purchased it. We have done some mechanical updates, paint work, interior work, new king pins, brakes, etc. since we have owned it.

             We use it regularly and it is used for work and pleasure. The one photo below shows some Grandchildren (young Stovebolters) posing by the truck.


             We want to say how much we appreciate the Stovebolt site, and appreciate what a labor of love it has to be for all the work you do to keep it going.

             We just LOVE future Stovebolters. Rick's Grandkids were featured on the "cover" of the site in November. And thanks for the kind remarks. It is a labor of love ... by quite a few people! ~~ Editor
