Good Morning All,

Recently acquired a 1959 GMC 100 and loving it! I'm looking forward to learning more about the truck and it's history. Truck runs great and has been a joy to take trips with my wife around town in. Color of truck really stands out and is an eye-turner!

Welcome to the 'Bolt, StefonoG!

That truck looks great. I really like the color, too. The Task Force trucks are my favorite. There's a good bunch of Task Force trucks in the static Gallery. There are over 16 GMC's in that block. (Use Ctrl F and type "GMC" in the little box at the bottom. When arrow up/down to go directly to the GMC's ... it'll cover the whole page but it's easy to arrow down to get to the '59's.)

There are a few Task Force trucks in the new Gallery Forum. A few GMC's and a few 1959 even. Think about adding your truck and the history as you start to uncover it! Can add up to 25 images there. (If you need help, we'll be here. Plus, we are working on a new page to help folks understand how to use the GF!)

Again, welcome to the virtual garage. Look around and see what else we have to offer. (Did I say The North Eastern 'Bolters? thumbs_up)

And ... this group can never get enough pictures. grin

I love all these 4 eyed trucks are being added to the forum. My '59 was originally that color, I found it under about 5 over colors. Welcome to the "BOLT".

Sure wish I could find one like that. And FYI GMC's of that same vintage of the Chevrolet "Task Force" Trucks, is called "Blue Chip".


Kicking self for selling off my Taskforce trucks.
Still looking for an LCF or conventional big bolt in decent shape.
