A teacher, but always an apprentice.
Just the other day I was talking about old trucks and stovebolts to a friend. He didn't understand about the "era" of trucks I was working on. I then went to a term I once saw on the stovebolt and I quite liked.
I said, "My trucks are the sweet, old, ‘fat fendered’ type."

He got it right there.

It was funny, because I then thought, "I wonder what ever happened to that fellow named FatFenders on Stovebolt?"

3 days later...BAM! You're back and still wrenching. Welcome back.

Greetings from the frozen tundra of southwest Nebraska! I haven't been on for quite a while, but it is good to see some familiar names on this post. I signed up here in January 1998.

I started a business as a sideline to buy parts for my 51 3100 just over 5 years ago. Three years ago the business rapidly expanded so I quit my job of 21 years to enter the self-employed workplace. I sold the 51 to a kid I worked with and he is slowly piecing it together.

I just tinker with small engines and chainsaws for fun now--I work out of my home shop and have no room for vehicles that don't move daily. I enjoyed spending time on this site, and I will try to check in more frequently.

Hello yet again Fatfenders. I still remember one of the first threads that I got drug in. The old timers were wondering if DR. FATFENDERS was you... I rotated through several nicknames until I settled on Rusty Rod, since all my "classics" are rodded and rusty.

Another quality post.

Fatfenders Hello from a fellow from long ago too. I too have been a member since (before) 2000. I don't know how long before 2000 but I do remember the "reboot" and we all had to reregister. I am member 21 and you are 34 or so I think. Getting back to working on my truck after too long of an absence. Finally rebuilding the engine. No one appreciated my Bug Removal SMOKE, LOL! Good to be back

I was just wondering what everyone was up to during lockdown. How's everyone?

If you can't laugh at yourself, I'll laugh at you.
