Very glad to stumble across these Stovebolt forums! Seems like there is an endless amount of information here, which is great, as I am new to the concept of being a caretaker for such a beautiful machine. I do plan on keeping her going as long as possible and hopefully can pass it along to the next generation of family.
This truck has been in my wife's family for a long time, and this year we inherited it. It was originally restored back in the 1990's by my wife's dad who passed in 2004. We have brought it to a few local shows and plan to keep showing it.
Wonderful -- another Granite Stater ... (Hambone is starting to get some friends ...)
Seriously, welcome aboard. There *are* starting to be more and more of you ... Be sure to post that Manchester show in the NorthEast Bolters' Forum in the Side Lot. Starting getting two or more of you guys together at shows and I'll send you a Stovebolt Flag. Shoot, maybe I'll send you Hambone ...

"Send" is not the right phrasage, but i will deliver the SB banner and buy the first cooler of beer. In time i will establish allegences, but for now ODSS will continue to benefit from my wisdom. Until then i am keeping tabs on the checkins. New london nh is the destination. Part time for now. Full time in the future.
