Ring in the new with some quality time with your old truck! A great time to tackle a winter project. If you do not have access to your truck, start your parts list for spring!
The days are officially getting longer now, you know!
I just stumbled on your site so I thought I would join and check this place out. Together, my son Nate (now 20yrs old) and I have a Father/Son project which is a 1951 Chevy 3100. This truck was previously owned by one of my dad's best friends, named Bill who was also a great mentor to me growing up. In fact Bill would drive me around at night in this very truck when I was in diapers as he was trying to put me to sleep when he would babysit me.
Anyways, we've spent the past 8 years fabricating the chassis and getting the truck running. We still have a ways to go on it, but Nate is having a great time learning how to work on old hot rods. I hope to learn a bunch from you guys.
Troy, a big Stovebolt welcome to you and your son. (he sure don't look 20)!!
Its great to be able to pass on our knowledge to the next generation. I will surely serve him well in the future. Nice set up you have there.......and keeping your son busy will also keep him out of trouble. Well, maybe a speeding ticket! LOL
There are bunches of Texas guys here so watch for them......called the Texas Connection!
Any questions, just ask in the most applicable garage forum and the guys here will help out. Thanks for the pics.
Nate was quite younger when those pics were taken. The truck is on the road now, but still not completed. We still have lots of body & paint work left as well as the interior to finish out. Nate was recently chosen as the GoodGuys Southwest Nationals YoungGuys recipient when he came home from college over the short weekend. Unfortunately, he had to return for work Saturday night and couldn't stay to pick up his award...so he let his cousin drive the truck to the awards show for him.[img]https://www.facebook.com/1951chevytruck/videos/763343700783339/[/img]
