|Stovebolt New Stuff - December|
|'What we're doing around the site (It's a "Never-ending Newsletter" )|
Sagas, Feature Stories and some stuff we've done here and there and don't know where else to put it!
Well I've been sorta worried
About Santa Claus this year
'Cause we live way down south
And it didn't snow down here.
But I'm telling you not to worry
'Cause I just got the word.
Everybody listen closely
And I'll tell you what I heard.
Santa's comin' in a Stovebolt
Instead of his trusty sleigh.
He'll have a truck instead of reindeer
To carry him on his way.
'Cause the weatherman had some problems
He couldn't get snow you see.
Santa's gonna come in a Stovebolt
When he visits you and me.
Santa can't bring his reindeer
He'll leave them far away.
But don't you worry 'bout him
He's gonna be here Christmas day.
He's got a big red Stovebolt
With four-wheel drive and all.
And there's gonna be a Merry Christmas
A Merry Christmas for all.
That Santa is one smart Bolter!
Thanks to Jim Bow for sending this in!
Hot or cold ... any way you like it

It Ran When I Parked It Winners!
May we have the envelope please
We had 53 entries for this year's It Ran When I Parked It photo contest, and some really darn good ones. Some hysterical. Some great tales and background info. Thanks to those who took the time to tell everyone just how easy it is to find such beauty in the wild.
Judging was laborious but handled with calculating detail. The voice of motorheads far and wide for The People's Choice Award was tallied by the two beauties here (Joker's delightful Granddaughters). Thanks to them and Grandpa for their help in this annual artistic expression of our crazy hobby.

The contest is always fun. But it's great to get a cool prize
So, now you need to know who won and what -- Read on ...
Stovebolt Feature ~ Lurch's 2007 Memoirs
Checking in with his Chevy buds, and sharing the love
Lurch, the 1927 1-Ton Cattle truck, is quite the celebrity around Stovebolt and other parts, too!! Lurch had Dean "Rustoholic" Meltz pined to the computer to be sure we all had a real good account of what they all have been doing for the past year. And it's been plenty -- a gal with a REO, the rich and famous meets the rusty and infamous, bring the cows, and finding a distant cousin.
A year's worth of adventures and a great read. Good writing, Lurch. Good typing Dean!
Looking at Stovebolts month after month
As if that doesn't go on already
We have these calendars done so far, and have more entries coming in. Check on the Calendar Page to see all the details!!
When I first saw your e-mail, it did not soak in -- thought it was just the announcement and would get to it later. Ten minutes ago, I went up on the site and see that Baxter is on the cover of the 2008 Large Calendar!!! Wow, wow, wow!!!! Our place went nuts here -- you will get our order soon once I revive the check writer. Thanks so much -- he is happy to be of service!!!!!! John Lewis and Baxter, 1953 Chevy Pickup
|Posting pictures in the forums
DON'T DO IT!
|Stovebolt Super Stars
The fuel that keeps us on the Info Super Highway
The reason we ask for a LINK to a picture (rather than posting / embedding the image itself):
We've even taken the image button out of the menu to help curb this practice. Most of the gang is really good about not embedding an image and we greatly appreciate it.
You may have noticed, we are including more pictures in the Gallery, but even in there, we are using links to the pictures (which are larger and hopefully more helpful) for those same reasons. A side benefit for your post then, is that you can post a link to as big a picture as you like and it won't affect the rest of the posts in that thread!
Thanks for your cooperation!
Stovebolt.com has expenses like anything else and we sincerely appreciate those that help carry this load. Keeping this site moving ahead and FREE for everyone, has been made so by contributions from many and some cold cash by some. We are all grateful.
