Fred as i call him started as a project w my Dad in 2002. Fred was a nickname my Dad gave me! We had help w restoration until my Dad passed away in 2008. I found someone to complete the restoration whom deserves mentioning - Ron Shaw. Just this September he was back home in my driveway. Still some work to be done but his bodywork is complete! My love comes from my passion that my dad my brother and grampa shared w me. Dad always had a red chevy in the driveway, his hands dirty teaching us how to rebuild the crabs and such and old car shows were a weekend event for us. My brother passed just a year ago and without the Goede men i still have the love and passion but could use some guidance as i continue to work on my project! Excited to find you all!

Really Nice! Welcome to the Stovebolt addiction. Great story about your dad, brother and grandpa. Mi familia is what it's all about. Without that we don't have much.
Enjoy it!

Great looking truck. Sorry for the loss of your brother last year. Good to have you and you truck on board!

As olezippi said, we would love more pictures!
