How to access old thread.

Just tried to read a older thread that shows on the bottom of member Builder's post. This is the link. Once you click on the link you're taken to the introduction to what sounds like an epic adventure: "Later this month, Steve "Builder" VandenBerg is leaving Souix Falls, South Dakota and heading to Decatur, Texas to pick up a sight-unseen 1965 Chevy Pickup -- a true "It Ran When I Parked It" contender. A typical Bolt nut would trailer it home and spend nine months to nine years restoring the truck. Not this hardcore Stovebolter. An insatiable explorer of people, places, things and ideas, he's going to drive it home, fixing it "on the fly" as you might say. What guts!"

Would love to read about the adventure, however the links to the actual trip are dead. My suspicion is that during a upgrade to the Stovebolt servers in the distant past the subject post were either lost, or archived.

Question, is there a incantation one can say to activate the "WayBack Machine" and view these older threads?

I remember it well. Steve made a short stop a few miles west of me for fuel. I drove over and we spent a few minutes visiting before he continued his trip. I do imagine the original thread is long gone but I don't know that to be fact. My recommendation would be to contact John at editor@stovebolt.com and ask if it's still in the archives and could be restored. Steve still posts from time to time so you might contact him directly for his input.

Go to Builder’s profile page. You will find a link to his IRWIPI thread. Click on the link and enjoy.

We were privileged to be a short part of the saga here in El Reno, Okla. Steve stopped by here on his way back north. Cool old truck and an epic venture.

I believe he's referring to the forum thread Martin. That link is dead. Of course I could be wrong. grin

Yup, I should have read a bit farther. Link is gone. Probably during the last cleanup.

Builders story was pretty epic. I would love to do that sometime.


Another quality post.

MoparGuy, I bought a 66 pickup (sight unseen) that had been sitting for 27 years down in Texas. I flew down there and took it to my Uncle Carl's place, got it running and drove it home to South Dakota. On the way home, I zig zagged back and met up with Stovebolters to say hello and kept going. With the help of Peg and John Millman, I was able to get some sponsors. With the money we raised, Stovebolt then sent care packages to the troops. I had to completely rebuild the rear end, wiring, u joints, brakes, gas tank, windshield, door window, and ended up replacing the engine, and more, before I left Texas. It took me 2 weeks of non-stop work (play) start to finish. I posted every day (or night) on my progress. It was an adventure to me. I remember getting home and getting back to work. I think I had post vacation blues for a couple of weeks. You can also read in the SAGAs pages for the corvette adventure. It was a similar deal. That is a long write up. where I did a 1969 Corvette that had sat for 18 years in California. I still have both vehicles. I'll have to take a look to see if I can find them old posts. Thanks for the interest. I don't make it back here too much, but am once again building a truck, SO, you don't know when you will see me here, but I may get here more often for a while.
Steve aka Builder

I wonder if a lot of old threads were deleted? Hence the drop in my post count from 11,000+ to less than 3000?

Hey Rusty Rod. I believe they get removed if there is no recent history to them, and haven't been accessed for some time. I thought I had many more posts than it shows I have too. Quite a bit of history in some of those old posts, but I get it.

I can't speak for all of the Mods but I'm charged with deleting old posts in my Swap Meet forum. Having said that it's never deleted post counts.

Hey Rusty Rod, Justhorsenround, Tiny,
It's good to know you guys are still around. It doesn't seem that long ago does it? The Triple Dog Dare was a neat trip that is really a great memory for me.

I've been trying to find this from this in The Wayback Machine. I've gone a little ways and need to do a better job of keeping track of what I have already seen.

I've looked thru a bunch of my computer files to see if I saved any of the thread earlier but have had no luck there.

Haven't given up. If anyone wants to help, would be glad of it. Once we find it, we can finally make a Saga of it.

The Wayback Machine website is pretty cool. thumbs_up

Alvin,

Here's the phots from the 2007 Reunion in Kansas City. Besides the main ones in the Bolt Bucket, there are some others the 48 big trucks, 27 Capitol, and Avette for me took.

Here's the actual News Story from the 2007 Reunion.

It's fun to go back and look at these. wave
