Welcome Claus, yes there are others here from Germany. I met one of them several years ago on my way from Bayern to Holland. I even presented him with an official Stovebolt flag. You have a Canadian GMC, that's why it has a Chevy engine.

Hello Claus,

It sounds like you have a great project. Please post some pictures. My son is currently stationed at Ramstein.

Willkommen Claus,
Ihr LKW is eine Schonheit.
My family came from the Holstein-Schleswig area so you will have to translate my very poor High German into your very acceptable Low German.

Welcome to the 'bolt. I sold a 39 pickup that was sent to Germany several years ago.

Another quality post.

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