From Barry:

           I have a couple old trucks but the '53 is my favorite. She's been in the family for about seven years now.

           I bought her from a fellow in Little Fort, British Columbia. That's in Canada for anyone not good with geometry. About 150 miles from my home in Revelstoke, British Columbia. I saw her there when I was passing thru on holidays in 1998.

           I've got her setting on all the running gear from a 1978 Jimmy. A 400 small block, 400 turbo auto tranny and 373 gears in the diffs. We take her camping every year, pulling a small camper trailer and love all the head turning and attention she attracts.

           Really like The Stovebolt Pages. There is a wealth of knowledge to be had there and I have got some really good info in helping me get my '53 where it is today.

           Thanks for letting me show my truck here and keep on Stovebolting.
