Happy New Year! Gloria and I are ready to cocoon tomorrow! Our favourite night to stay at home!

Happy New Year everybody. I'll be spending tomorrow plowing the road to my shop so I can receive a propane delivery, I hope the weather co-operates.

Happy New Year to all of you!
WOW - 2018 already. I think I'm starting to feel my age!

https://youtu.be/EUTWZBjvKGA. An update video of my truck. Just need to pass inspection. Hopefully I’ll be able to participate in some stovebolt events in 2018.
Happy New Year.

Every time I learn something new, I forget something I used to know, like that time I took a wine making class and forgot how to drive!

Happy New Year. Can you explain when an inspection is necessary in BC? If the truck has been off the road for a few years for restoration, does it need to be inspected?

From what I understand, it’s because of the time since the vehicle was last registered. My truck didn’t come with a vin# but I was able to obtain a motor number that I am told I can use. God only knows how long since that number was in use. I’m supposed to mount that number to the vehicle in the factory location which can be any of 3 places , the engine , the seat frame, or the passenger side floor, according to the internet. My truck didn’t come with a floor, seat, or engine.

If anyone out there knows for sure where Chevrolet mounted the number I would appreciate the information. I’m guessing that the location was variable depending on different factors. Since they mainly used engine codes I would say that is a safe place to mount the tag but I’m using a sbc 350 not the original inline 6. A seemingly obvious difference that the inspector may take issue with.

Any stovebolt members out there with experience in B.C. getting their truck inspected? What was the process like?

Looks like you have to apply for a VIN.

ICBC Modified Collector Vehicle

We have a registration number. When we bought the truck, we had it transferred into our names and got a temporary operating permit to drive it home. Only made it 1/2 way home due to hole in the carb float. The rest of the way home was on the back of a tow truck! That was many years ago. Don't know if I can simply walk into an insurance office and ask for a plate. I suspect that they might tell me to get it inspected since it has been off the road for so long.

Looks like serial nos in 1934 were just simple sequential numbers. Who know where they put them. Heritage center kit is vague:
