We started this "idea" a long time ago and it was fun. A lot of those old threads are gone but this much was saved in the News page.

You might be a Stovebolt Lover if:


In2deep - you have a two or three car garage with one truck in it. Whole or in pieces.
Popcorn - you get up at 4 a.m. to work on "the truck" because its more important than sleep.
Fahr - you excitedly call your wife to tell her you found the perfect (insert missing or broken truck part)... and she's as excited as you are about it
Tony M - your wife checks the history feature on your computer and finds nothing but pictures of naked .. trucks
Fatfenders - your eyes glaze over when someone talks about any truck newer than 1974.
46 Burb - you spend quality time with your wife on the living room couch with a laptop posting on a Stovebolt forum.
Patrick66 - you have parts from the last seventeen trucks you've owned, and can identify every one of them!
Sublime - you heat bake your intake manifold in the kitchen oven and stink your house out for hours
Mugsy - the first thing you do in the morning (besides make a cup of coffee) is turn the computer on and go to The Stovebolt Page.

I put this post in this section so people who don't have access to the Greasy Spoon can still see it.

Have a Happy Valentine's Day, ye old Stovebolters.

The first five days after the weekend are the hardest.

You reupholster truck seats in your dining room.

Body work hub caps to get that just right look.

If you have more than five pre 1970 Stovebolts!
Well, that may be classified as a severe addiction?

You forgot your wedding anniversary because you were too busy with the truck. (Good thing both of us were guilty of this)

After a late night working on the truck, you climb into the bed of the truck, get all comfy, and fall asleep, only to woke up at daybreak!

Wife and I did that a few years ago at the KC Reunion.
Remembered Sunday on the way home, that the day before was our 19 anniversary.
Yes, we were both guilty of forgetting it.
9-9-95 was the day we got married under a full moon.

You might be a Stovebolt Lover if: your two grandchildren (a girl & a boy) ask to sit in the Suburban every time they visit (2-3 times a week).

I think I have one legal child seat. If it works, I'll get another. Then, we will all go on at least a 15 minute ride, every time they visit/ask.

One will inherit the 1954 3106 Suburban.
The other will inherit the 1954 3104 Deluxe Pickup.

Well, your “idea” has been a powerful opportunity for me to learn and find parts, or people that had them, for an old Chevy COE restoration. I’m 46 now but started this journey 13 years ago and I’m nearly done! I couldn’t have done it without your site and the people that are part of. So, thank you - it was a great “idea”!
