I'm glad Randy attached the link to hotrodders.com website giving me the information about powermelissa. I had no idea PowerTV was doing that, but I can definitely see why people were upset.

The company my husband and I operate is very different from PowerTV. V8TV used to be a television show airing on the Menís Channel. Last year, we moved the show to the website. If we are on forums or message boards it is to learn about something, make friends, talk about ideas, figure out questions we have on the cars we are building. V8TV does not SPAM the forum admins or the members or anybody. Yes, we post videos on the forums and message boards that we shoot in our shop while building our project cars. Yes we mention the products that we are using, because those are the actual parts being used to build the car. Itís like guys at a car show, saying their car has Edelbrock Intake, and a Currie 9Ē rear end, etc. We get hundreds of questions from viewers about the parts and techniques used to put a car together and the video is how we answer them.

In the case of me being on Stovebolt, it is purely personal. On the V8TV website, we have a forum and a part of that forum is called the Truck Stop. We started it because I like trucks more than muscle cars so it was a way for me to be in contact with our viewers who are interested in trucks too. While on that forum, I was invited by a Stovebolt member to checkout the Stovebolt forum. The day I realized my 3 speed transmission was not going into second and third gear, I joined Stovebolt to learn more. I have found it to be a wonderful website with lots of helpful information.

I personally own the 54 truck, I paid for it with money I made selling household items on ebay. I use that same money to buy the parts for the truck - hence it being a low buck build. The 54 is not sponsored by anybody.

Iíve emailed the Stovebolt administrators to get permission to continue posting on this site. Only upon their approval will I continue. I felt the videos were a way to contribute to the other readers who might be going through what I am or working on the same thing and either they can help me, or I might tell them or show them something to help them.

I apologize if I have offended anyone. Hopefully we will get a thumbs up from the moderator because we have a lot more work on the truck.

No problems here Kelle, I just wanted you to realize why some folks might be a bit gun shy of you. Thanks for being upfront w/everything also..

I'm happy to hear that a follow member was kind enough to steer you to us for good info on your truck & hopefully we can continue to help you out as you work on your truck. I also see that you even mentioned Stovebolt in your video & in the credits as where you got some of your info, thank you for that...Joe

Again, Welcome Kelle and please do stick around.

You asked about the "black" truck in my link. It's actually dark green with some primer and lots of patina and rust. Poor quality photo, too. The shiney kick panels you see in the interior shot are coffee cans I riveted in to cover the holes. Strictly temporary and they have since been removed. The rest of the interior you see did turn out rather well, thanks. grin

Welcome Kelle, I finally got to see your video. I have to see that stuff at work, I'm on dial-up at home. I, personally, think that's some cool stuff. Not many of us have video access or even the nerve to get in front of a camera. Keep it up!

As far as what Randy said, take it with a grain of salt. There's all kinds here, no sense getting upset with one persons opinion. If you were doing anything wrong, the moderators would be sure to let you know. It's refreshing to see women get involved with our hobby, I wish my wife would but......she's a good sport about it at least.

I'm not John or Peg, but I do know them and feel they would welcome you as you are. When talking products that we use, we always mention the brand we use, that's how we figure out what works and where to get it. Plugging a few in the video didn't bother me at all. Kinda proud that you plugged the Stovebolt even.

Anyway, I would continue doing your thing until told otherwise (by a moderator), I sure enjoy it.
Welcome to the Stovebolt,
Scott

Hey 48bigtrucks, I'm on dial-up, and it didn't even take over 10 minutes(if you have the patience!) to load, and for me, it usually takes 30-1 hour to listen to a song. So, you might be able to look at it at home.

I would rather wait and use high speed. Our dial-up is even slower than most, it even locks up at times. I know a guy that works as our local telephone company service tech and swears he can hook me up cheaper than the going rate. I may not be on dial-up much longer,

OMG! I am so happy to see you here Kelle. I am having so much fun watching and listening to your blog. Keep it up. I too help out in the garage with our trucks. My favorite job is greasing the bearings. Pushing the grease in til it squirts out the other side. Anyways, Hope it warms up so you can get back to work. You inspire me.I like the simple approuch to your work on your truck. I too don't go for fancy paint jobs. You can't have any fun if you are worried about dings and scratches. Thumbs up from me!!!! ;-)

Welcome Kelle. Love the 54 build and blog. You might consider a pertronix unit for your distributor. They are easy to install and you retain the original look. That is if your dizzy is in decent shape. Also, you should check out Billy Bob's progress if you haven't found it yet. Good luck and I'll stay tuned.
