So I finally got my dream truck, a early fifties Chevy COE (could have been either a Chvey or a brand F), and I'm looking for folks in my area to commiserate with. Any one out there with a early 50's Chevy or GMC that wants to connect with a crazy old man?

Hi extremek, I bought my 1955 International Harvester 300U near St. Johns, I live between Chelsea and Stockbridge just east of 52. Took the '57 on it's loaded maiden voyage on thanksgiving morning and put 92 bales of hay on her, I was pleased with the results even though it was only a 30 mile round trip.

Your Blue 54' looks great! We should get together for coffee and trucks when you are back in Michigan.

Hi guys,

I'm in Big Rapids, where I'm a professor at Ferris State (econ and finance). I have a '53 3/4 ton daily driver, with an original 216 (but some upgrades), and my current project is a '46 Fleetline Aerosedan. I also have a '50 Fleetline 4 door and my wife's "new" car is a '67 Chevelle with a 250. Of the 5 vehicles we own, all are Chevys and 4 are Stovebolt 6s!

We have a great cruise-in the first Friday of every month in the summer here in Big Rapids--yous guys should come check it out some time!

Cheers,
Tyler

Tyler,

I graduated from Ferris State, so would like to make it back up there sometime to check things out.
Sounds like I need to mark the Big Rapids cruise down on the calendar for this year.
Let's get some chatter going when we get closer to summer, and get as many area Bolters as we can to participate.

--Tom
