A New Year
A New Decade

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!

Should have included this earlier. Here is Bill's website that offers a glimpse of several of his passions: his old trucks, gardening, and the 1947 Flxible Clipper coach known as "da bus." There's a lot of neat stuff.

Here is his 1958 Chevy Longbed, a "working 'Bolt" ... featured in our Working Bolts calendar.

Thanks John. I just viewed his website and it was very entertaining. I didn’t know him but I’ve read many of his post and he will surely be missed. He was a very artistic man of many talents. Did he ever finish the “Flxable” bus he was working on? It was turning out beautiful.

I love a quote he had on his site, “ Enjoy it while you’ve got it, all good things end.”

“Rest In Peace” my friend!

He has been a presence on here as long as I've been here. Thanks Bill, Godspeed.

My sincere condolences from Alabama. I can see from his website that we shared a lot of common interest. I was seriously into the organic life and homesteading back in the late 70’s and early 80’s and I still have three compost bins in the backyard. I also love to repurpose things.

I can see from my past searches that Bill was an integral part of this Stovebolt community. May he rest in peace and know that, as John said, “His influence on all our lives will endure and continue to put a smile on the face of anyone who ever was blessed to have been in contact with him in anyway”.
