My truck started life as a '51 3100 Stove Bolt , somewhere along the line received a '67 Camaro transplant.
I have acknowledged that mixed heritage in the ways pictured.

I like it!

What is the bolt for other than making dents in the tailgate?

The bolt is there just to be there.
Not planning on dropping the tailgate; but I suppose that verbalization may have just cursed it.

Given how low that bumper is it would be pretty hard to make contact. And if it did, well , out comes the rattle can primer!

I'd be tempted to make that bolt head round, and file a screwdriver slot into it!

I like it, the Camaro badge will bring a host of questions. The fun is in how you answer those😜.
