Just read in the VCCA magazine of a fellow Bolter, Joe Fuchs,"6cylindersovertexas", passed away in September.

On one of our road trips Victoria and I had the opportunity to have lunch, and spend the evening, with him and his wife Rhonda. Joe was once a DJ and certainly a lover of country music, a builder, and other talents.

I first got acquainted with Joe when talking to him back in the 90's after I had acquired a 37 Chevy pickup. I had
noted that he was the technical advisor for the 37/38 pickups in the VCCA club. As a Stovebolter Joe was always willing to help anyone needing it. We enjoyed many conversations over the years.
On our visit we enjoyed seeing his 37 pickup in person. I believe he owned it about 30-40 years and I remember it once graced the cover of the VCCA magazine Generator & Distributor.

Rest in peace Joe, you will be missed by many.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

Yes, he will be missed. He helped me too along the steep, long learning trail of many things about Art Deco Chevy trucks. RIP, Joe.

RIP Joe, A long time friend via VCCA and Inliners. We never met face to face but spent many hours on the phone talking mostly our trucks etc. His 37 was a pristine work of art, detailed to the max, the motor loaded with rare speed equipment. Happy Trails Joe.

It's easier to get forgiveness than permission!
