We are so sorry this is long delayed. Because of ... well many things ... the last update acknowledging donations was some time ago. Our apologizes for all that. blush

There are many aspects to keeping the Stovebolt web site humming along -- from keeping the server functional 24/7 (a HUGE thanks to Paul "The Stovebolt Geek" Schmehl working away down there in Texas!), riding herd over the forums, creating and updating Gallery pages and Tech Tips, a whole host of jobs and efforts. We are so grateful to have dedicated volunteers all over the place making these things happen. Not the least of our helpers are the Bolters who continuously help one another out in the forums -- they are the strength of the site. They are the heart-core -- people willing to put a little something back into this site by sharing their knowledge through virtual hands-on assistance. Over the years, these lovers of old trucks have come face-to-face on a regular basis, extending the same generosity and helpfulness that began right here. We can't keep them apart (which is awesome!) The Event forums and the Side Lots have helped make that happen. But we found out that these Bolters are naturally drawn to one another -- all over, field and mountain, distant shores, too! It's a natural bond that brings these old truck people together.

Then there's a very special group who needs a big thanks from all of us. They've dipped into their pockets and, after sorting out a few nuts, bolts and dog hairs, have tossed some cash our way to help us pay for the things we need to keep this site on-line and up-to-date.

All of our staff (including John and Peggy) are volunteers -- All contributions go directly to the operation, maintenance and upgrade of Stovebolt.com, the net's oldest and most complete site on old GM trucks!


Listed those who donated this year, thru the end of March.

NOTE: Will update this list at the end of each month.

If you derive any benefit or entertainment from reading/posting-on Stovebolt.com make a donation.

There is no PayPal fee if you designate it is a personal payment.

Opps. Good catch Alvin. dang I'll fix that page with the new address as soon as I can. Thanx.

Tim, I didn't know that about the "personal donation." We have had most donations tagged with a few. I'll add that, too. I wonder if you can include a note. It would help me a lot to have the donor's screen name.

I just sent a donation in, but didn't figure out how to make it a personal payment. The link on the page just takes you to a merchant designation of "The Stovebolt Page" that looks like you're buying something. So unfortunately, you didn't get the whole thing.
Anyway, Well worth the donation for the knowledge obtained from the site. thumbs_up

Hello, Peg,

It has been a while since I set up a PayPal account.

I think an email address is used?
What email address did you use?

I'll see if I can make a donation to that email address - and - that way maybe indicate it is a non-commercial transfer?

Thanks Peggy. I asked John to update the address shortly after the move but I know he’s busy. There are some of us that prefer snail mail.

I prefer snail mail too. And we've had a bunch who do. I had a problem (among many dang) with getting the deposit to the bank. One check waited a whole year and I returned it ... don't wanting to mess up the donor's account. All that has been remedied.

The address has been updated on that Thanks page, with a link coming back here.

I'm out of time for the day. If anything comes up, just send me a note.

And please don't anyone feel compelled to jump in here. Our timing seems to be bad with all this crazy stuff going on in the world. Changes made in the past few years have been covered by donations. We have such an awesome crew.

Tim, The receipt e-mail I got from paypal indicated the payment was to editor@stovebolt.com. That should work for you.

Thanks, Kevin

When you use editor@stovebolt.com, and make a personal payment - there would be no fee.

Stovebolt.com is not a for-profit business - why pay a “business transaction fee”?
