Peggy M.

I think what the members said above is still spot-on, at least for me anyway. Of course, I am a little late to the party, not the thread, just the Stovebolt party in general. I wish I had known about this site years ago. If I had, I may have done a little better job of preserving what I have.

Martin,
I can relate to re-upholstering seats in the house. Not for a Stovebolt though, it was for a 1962 VW Beetle and it was in the Living Room. I still have a picture of my son standing in the engine compartment of the VW when I was doing the restoration. He was two then, he is thirty-five now.

So Peggy here is one, “You might be a Stovebolt Lover if – you offer to take your spouse for a Valentine’s Day get away and she says why don’t we go on a road trip to get parts for the truck.” Oh yeah, we have been married for almost forty-three years.

You might be a Stovebolt Lover if: You take the back road to dinner with your Wife just so you can pass that "I'm gonna fix it someday" 49 3100 truck.

...my family love the 37 pickup more than me! .

Almost sold the pickup a year ago and when the family learned I was planning on selling it they dis-owned me.
Lucky for me the buyer decided on a car. After we hung up the phone I told the family the pickup is NOT FOR SALE.
Now I get to eat good food again..........and the truck will go to my daughter and my nephew mechanic. He works on it, she drives it.

....Stovebolt Love is when you rather ramble through a junk yard than go to the mall with your wife! I think I won her over to my side.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.

Oh wow. These are good comments and anecdotes.

Good to see another Alabama Bolter. And a VW bugman.

You might be a Stovebolt lover: If you drag a prized part find from 1/4 mile off the road thru 6 inch deep mud.

I think my feet weighed 10 lb each from the mud buildup. frown But I got it!!

Wow John...my brothers first car was a 59 VW that he bought from my uncle for $75.00. It wasn’t mine, but I was so excited I spent all day waxing the chalky paint until it actually shined. He would take all the neighborhood kids for a ride and we would have to rock back in forth in unison to get up some of the hills where we lived. Those were good times.

But no about sticking with the VW’s. I like the Stovebolt’s much better.

I've dropped in at Stovebolters on the west coast, the east coast, the deep south, the mid west and even visited one in Germany. Met bolters in 5 different countries and all these interactions were great.
